The Work of

Matthew Latkiewicz

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

I created and hosted a TV show called You Can Do Better on truTV, adapted from a book I wrote 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 Oakland, CA with my stylin' wife.

Latest and Greatest

I wrote and performed in a play called Life Plan, or How to Live your Best Life in a Collapsing World! that premiered at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, where it was nominated for Best Immersive Production.

Set in 2068, Life Plan is an immersive sci-fi satirical play in the form of a sales presentation. Here is a teaser image for it!
