Mat Blackwell is a multi-award-winning writer, a prolific chaos-musician, and a reclusive troglodyte who veers between feeling universal oneness with all living beings, and wishing that they’d all just hurry up and die. He has written for performers like Waleed Aly, Paul McDermott, and Barry Humphries. He wrote the funny bits of TV shows like The Glass House, Good News Week, and Room 101, amongst many other things. He also co-created and co-wrote the multi-award-winning sharehouse-black-comedy-meets-convict-period-drama, Bruce, starring (amongst others) Angus Sampson and Rich Davies. When he’s not cranking out gags for TV, or penning satirical novels for discerning adults, Mat writes philosophical essays on music, art, humour and morality.
