Julia Mattison BIO

Julia Mattison is a NY based writer, actor, and musical comedian. She has appeared on Broadway (Godspell), television (Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Show), and film (How To Be Single, in the stunning and layered role of “Makeup Saleslady”), and has written book, music, and lyrics, for a variety of major projects. She and her writing partner Noel Carey debuted their original musical comedy for Audible, called Is Anyone Alive Out There? at the Minetta Lane Theater in New York (available to stream on Audible), and co-wrote multiple musical commercials for Olay, including “I Can’t Wait To Wash My Face,” which has garnered millions of views online and aired on the MTV VMA’s, as well as the one-night-only Olay Live! Musical starring Ana Gasteyer. Julia and Noel also created and wrote the hit web series Brooklyn Sound, which was nominated for a Webby Award for Best Comedy, won the 2016 Streamy Award for Best Indie, and received multiple awards at the 2016 New York Television Festival, including a Development Deal with Comedy Central and a Best Actress win for Julia. Julia wrote, directed, and starred in her debut short film Stomach People, which was EP'd by Michael Showalter.

As a musical comedian, Julia and her pal (and other writing partner) Joel Waggoner created the viral holiday sensation “Joel & Julia’s Advent Carolndar” (@adventcarolndar on Instagram) where they’ve shared 25 brand new carols every December for three years running. Joel and Julia were featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition and Jimmy Kimmel Live! supporting Ben Platt and recently released their hour-long holiday variety special, Joel and Julia’s Haunted Holiday Singlong! Additionally, Julia’s performed her original musical comedy around NYC for shows like The Sweet Show with Seth Herzog (The Tonight Show), and has written and debuted multiple original shows in New York, at Joe’s Pub (Noel and Julia’s Wayward Brainchildren), Chelsea Music Hall (Advent Carolndar Live!), and Feinstein’s/54 Below (Ruby Manger: A Farewell Engagement). She’s played opposite Darrell Hammond in the Funny Or Die sketch “Thoughts and Prayers,” in the Comedy Central web series Road To Hollygrove, and as a guest on Doug Loves Movies. In reading this bio, you may have noticed that Julia’s two main collaborators are named Noel and Joel. Julia looks forward to this being a hilariously confusing situation for years to come. Julia is represented by Namoff & Co and WME. She is the kind of person who is most likely to say “you too” after a hotel concierge says “enjoy your stay.”
