Born and raised in Brampton, Ontario and now calling Toronto home, Matt Klopot has been a creative media professional for over twelve years.
Matt has spent the majority of his career in film and television, lending his expertise to shows like Restaurant Makeover (Food Network), Gaming Show In My Parents Garage (Family Channel), and Pat Thornton & Eric Toth’s My Kitchen Can Be Anything (CBC Comedy). Matt will be joining the Hello Goodbye (CBC) crew for the remainder of 2017.
In Spring of 2015, Matt began work on a very goofy script that would become Dogs N Buns. Soon after the script was complete, Matt was pushed to try and make what would become his directorial debut. The film’s Indiegogo campaign was hugely successful, raising 100% of it’s ask in the first 24 hours, and eventually finishing at 330% of the original goal. The film was well received and Dogs N Buns was nominated for a 2016 Canadian Comedy Award in the ‘Best Short Film’ category.
In addition to his work in film and television, Matt is also an accomplished standup comic. Matt hit the Toronto scene in the fall of 2014 and quickly made a name for himself. Matt has opened for Canadian Comedy legend Mike MacDonald, he has been a semi-finalist in Absolute Comedy’s ‘Prove You’re A Comic’ competition, and quarter-finalist in the 2016 Comedy Brawl.
