Born in Prince George, B.C., Matt Billon’s childhood dreams included becoming a police officer, a comedian, or a wrestler… Not necessarily in that order. In the early years of his comedy career, Matt wrote material based on his experiences growing up in Penticton and Nelson, as well as quite a bit from his family… This made it somewhat awkward when he would do a show locally and his family would come out to watch!
Matt Billon honed his cool-headed, deadpan delivery on stages across Canada. His solid reputation for his witty, creative and unassumingly clever material has landed him feature appearances and specials on CBC’s “Madly Off in all Directions”, Much Music’s “Video on Trial”, XM Satellite Radio’s “Laugh Attack”, and his own one hour, jam packed special on “The Comedy Network”. Matt has been a finalist/winner in “The Great Canadian Laugh Off”, “Stand Up & BITE Me” and the “Seattle International Comedy Competition”
For the last 12 years, Matt Billon has been making a name or himself on the Canadian Comedy circuit. Whether it’s taking aim – with a pellet gun, no less – at insensitive siblings or bemoaning the fact he can never meet a girl who remembers her own phone number, Billon draws humour from his own life, no matter how embarrassing or incriminating.
