Comedian Matt Graham is the writer and performer of “This Too Shall Suck”, an autobiographical, one-hour show. Graham made professional debut in the 80s on the Boston comedy circuit with Louis CK, David Cross and Janeane Garofalo. His signature “non stand-up stand-up” earned him four appearances on the Conan O’Brien show (which he eventually wrote for) a writing gig with Saturday Night Live and national recognition as a comic.
During a hiatus from stand-up, Graham took up professional scrabble, and at age 31, placed second in the 1997 World Scrabble Championships. He was a subject in the New York Times bestseller “Word Freak”, and the Sundance documentary film, “Word Wars”. Graham was also featured on NBC News (for his ability to play Scrabble blindfolded), Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and the N.Y. Times Sunday Magazine.
