“Mattio doesn’t simply deliver the laughs, he’s flat out hysterical!”

Jase Peeples, entertainment editor, The Advocate


Here are a few clips of some of my comedy bits and film pieces. Enjoy!

Get to Know
Mr. Mattio

(he's one far out daddy-o...)

I got my start out of college directing comedy shorts, my most successful film, Big Breakin’, screened at Best of Fest at Outfest 2012. I’ve written and directed shorts and web series for ABC Studios, the BBC, as well as for several independent live-action and animation production companies. I’ve been performing stand-up comedy in L.A. for the last two years and have gotten to play all over town, including The Comedy Store, Flappers, and the Super Secret Comedy Show at the Lyric Theatre. I also co-produce a monthly stand-up show called BASH alongside comedian Ellen Etten and writer/story-producer Jessica Lee Williamson.

My comedy spans a wide range of topics including: growing up gay in the 80s and 90s, being the son of a South American immigrant mother/deposed Ecuadorian dictator, living with (and loving) mein wunderbar German husband and partner of 13 years, Philipp, and trying to figure out my place in a world that just won’t stop changing all its nonsense rules.

I’m currently working on all sorts of tricks and treats in my secret lab, so come back often to catch show announcements and new video clips. Swell!


Here are some pictures of me with some of my favorite people: friends, colleagues, heroes, buddies. Come out to one of my shows and maybe you could be featured here in my GALLERY OF AWESOME PEOPLE. Cool!
