The Work of

Matthew Latkiewicz

a writer who works in print, digital, and televisual mediums


I am performing the ancient art of musical theater at Cupcake Theater in North Hollywood, CA. Come see Into the Woods—maybe the best musical ever written?—running weekends from Jan. 19 to Feb. 25. I will be doing my best impersonations of the Big Bad Wolf and Prince Charming. Tickets available now. Use promo code "mattwoods" for 50% discount on tickets.

Summary of the past

Most recently, I made and hosted a TV show called You Can Do Better on truTV and wrote a book called You Suck at Drinking. My writing and comedy have appeared in various publications including McSweeney’s, Grub Street, Time's Techland, Wired, Details Magazine, and other small zines and academic journals you’d be hard pressed to find nowadays. I used to do customer service and creative direction at Zendesk, and before that owned a cafe called The Lady Killigrew Cafe in Montague, MA. It was a pretty cool cafe. I now live in Los Angeles, CA with my interior designing wife.
