Matt Wharf is 10 year veteran of comedy. His first stint in stand-up was from the mid-90s through to early 2000s. In Matt’s first ever standup show in 1995 he was first runner up in The Campus Comedy Competition at Latrobe University Melbourne. From there Matt worked his way up to a popular act on both The Melbourne and Sydney comedy scenes culminating with his Melbourne Comedy Festival cult hits ‘The Millennium Bugs Me’ 1999 and ‘A Wharf over Troubled Water” 2000. In 2001 Due to personal reasons Matt took a break from comedy, which turned into a longer break than intended. While in Thailand in 2014 – his previous life as a comedian a distant memory - Matt met up with an old comedy mate who happened to be in Bangkok to do some shows. Fascinated that there was stand-up comedy in Thailand Matt went along to support his friend and was back doing stand-up one week later. After thirteen years the comeback was on. Matt has now splits his time between Australia and South East Asia. Matt has been a regular visitor to Thailand having headlined at The Comedy Club Bangkok, RAW Comedy, Khao San Road Comedy club and Stagetime Comedy Club. Matt has also been a hit at both The Magners Comedy Festival Asia 2016 and The Bangkok Comedy Fringe 2017. Matt has also opened for such names such as Tom Rhodes (Comedy Central), Pete Lee (Jimmy Fallon), Phil Kay (BBC) and Joe Rooney (Father Ted).
