Big city corporate lawyer by day, stand-up comedian by night!

Matt Schneider ’08, was always told he was funny for a lawyer, but he was determined to prove he could be funny for a person. When Matt started performing stand-up comedy the live crowds that watched him were deafening as they roared “don't quit your day job!” Undeterred, after several years as a New York City big firm associate, Matt quit the high-paying gig to move to Hollywood, California to become a struggling comic! Now, Matt regularly appears at comedy clubs all across Los Angeles, performed in Las Vegas, and has done his act right before comedians like Damon Wayans, Marc Maron, Bill Burr and Jim Gaffigan, as he continues to warm up crowds everywhere (usually by handing out sweaters). Matt's next big show is Saturday night, May 10th at 7:30pm at the The Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. Cardozo grads are encouraged to come reunite with other alums in the LA area with some drinks and tons of laughs.
