Matt Braunger to Debut Hour-Long Special on July 14

Longtime Rooftop Comedy friend Matt Braunger will premiere his first hour-long special next month on Comedy Central. Filmed at the Gramercy Theatre in New York, Matt Braunger: Shovel Fighter¬†will undoubtedly showcase Matt’s knack for inventive wit and hilarious physicality. We’ve been longtime fans of Matt, who won Best of the Fest at the 2008 Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival. We could sing praises for Matt all day, what with his innovative Taco Bell ad ideas and Lil Wayne insight. Matt has garnered many a credit, taking his comedy to TV (Up All Night, Pushing Daisies, Chelsea Lately) and comedy festivals (Just For Laughs, SXSW, Bridgetown Comedy Festival co-founder). Shovel Fighter premieres on Comedy Central at 11pm ET.
