Straight Outta Comicon is the ongoing professional geek comedy project of Matt McInnis and Matt Keck.   It’s stand up comedy, it’s sketches, sometimes music.  Sometimes it’s an unscripted, audience driven experience.   At its core Straight Outta Comicon is Matt McInnis and Matt Keck as unmitigated versions of ourselves.  Its two kids that found themselves in comics, cartoons and video games that grew up finding themselves in stand up comedy, without ever leaving behind how we got there.

Its been our comedy, in our voices, on our terms and we’re pretty darn proud of how this geeky little experiment has played out so far.  The resulting show has been brought to conventions and stages across the country, hailed for originality, charm, and wit.

We bring a stand up comedy show bracketed by sketches, audience participation, a few musical acts, or just a small sit down Q&A confessional for a fully customizable experience .   The unique structure allows it to fill any time slot, content restrictions, or technical hurdles.  McInnis and Keck’s flexibility in writing and performance skills combined with their engaging, lovable presence has made Straight Outta Comicon unique amongst the ever growing geek comedy movement.
