Appearing this Weekend at Sidesplitters: Spanky Brown, 7/3-6

Have you had a good spankin' lately? If not, then this week's your week. He makes anyone laugh with his versatile, laid-back comedy. A little bit about Spanky: he's a preacher's son and has served time ... in the army. He's so smooth, rabbits rub his feet for good luck. A veteran of BET'S comic view, his comedy is like a buffet; it's got something for everyone.

His personal account of triumphs and tragedies and unbridled opinions are for all those who really try to "keep it real " . His experiences as a "Preacher's Son" ( Even God knows he's funny ) as an advertising executive , car salesman , insurance salesman , radio personality , father , step-father , being married , divorced , married and divorced ...again ( you do the math ) even served time ... in the army that is and his honesty about it is what makes him such an endearing character as much as his willingness to let you in so you can see that truly " it could be worse" .

"Matt Davis can be as cool as the other side of the pillow, or as harsh as unfiltered cigarettes... he has great material on everything from hunting and Harry Potter to retro clothing and homophobia in the Arab world..." - Creative Loafing, Atlanta

"If Paul Westerberg (The Replacements) was a comedian, he would probably sound alot like Matt Davis. Issuing a comedic stance equal parts brazen honesty and smarmy sarcasm." - The Weekly Volcano, Olympia, Washington

Matt Davis is a firm believer that nothing is sacred... nothing is safe.
For over a decade the 30 year old comedian has been mocking conventional thinking and the status quo through his faced paced and often irreverent performances.

Believing nothing is "off-limits" his material ranges from the taboo and unspoken to the simple facets and truths of everyday life all spun together by an off track train of thought at full steam ahead.

After first taking the stage at 17 Matt honed his writing and performance skills as the house emcee at The Comedy Club Stardome, a 450 seat plus venue averaging eight shows a week, where he was fortunate to work with such comedy great as Dave Attell, Dave Chappell, Kevin Pollack, and countless others. He has since performed in 2000 seat theaters working with artists such as Dwight Yoakam; and has gone on to log his own headlining dates at some of the best comedy clubs and venues in North America.

Including a two month stint as the requested feature performer on the "Mo Show" in Las Vegas where the Las Vegas magazine called his erratic on stage behavior like watching a "tightly wound spring."

In 2005 Jagermeister sponsored Matt Davis for a four-month tour at the end of 2005 through the beginning of 2006. In 2007 Sony's awarded Matt an Editor's Choice award for his stand up video touching on Valentines Day, Pirates, and Prince's Half Time performance. More recently, he may have been seen in the first season of "Man Up Stand Up" on MavTV, or as a Semi-finalist in the 31st Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition.
