Jake Mattera is one of my favorite people on the planet. We went to the same high school but didn’t know each other then, but became great friends in our 20s through the Philly comedy scene. From interning at Preston & Steve and for Conan O’Brien, we discuss Jake’s comedy from his first open mic to performing in Montana and Alaska and his special, A Soft One.
Pat House is a nationally-touring comedian based out of Philadelphia. A regular performer in comedy clubs, casinos, and theaters all over the country, Pat has been a choice opener for Sebastian Maniscalco, Tom Segura, and Dan Cummins. He recorded his first album Biggest Thing in 2013, and his latest album Heard Enough Yesterday, hit #1 on the iTunes comedy charts. Both can be heard on iTunes, Amazon, and Pandora.
Jake Mattera is a Philadelphia-based stand-up known for his loveable brand of wholesome self-deprecation. He perfectly blends smart and silly on his spiritual quest to make himself the butt of every joke. His hilarious take on marriage, parenthood, work, and daily life highlights the universal vulnerability we share in our most awkward moments.
His debut album, A Soft One, was released by Helium Records; it debuted at #2 on iTunes and Amazon. Jake’s comedy is featured on a “Best Of Philly” compilation that—along with his album—can be heard on Sirius XM. He’s performed in sketches on Conan and with the sketch group Gilly and Keeves. His comedy festival appearances include Big Sky, Laughing Skull, Limestone, San Francisco Sketchfest, and HBO’s WICF. Jake was a finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival and Helium Comedy’s Philly’s Phunniest Competition. He’s opened for Brian Regan, Dave Attell, and Nate Bargatze, among others.
