On this, our fifth episode, our guest is Mat Alano-Martin. Mat is a stand-up comedian who comes to comedy from the world of rock 'n' roll, where he spent 10 years touring North America as a member of several unknown bands and as a tour manager for much more successful, well known bands. With a comedic style that bridges the social and political views of his indie-rock background with the attitude and sensibilities of his rural and blue collar youth, Alano-Martin has appeared at comedy clubs, theaters, punk rock dives, redneck roadhouses, casinos, colleges, living rooms and everywhere in between. Alano-Martin’s debut album “Profiled as Such” can be heard on the Sirius/XM Raw Dog comedy channel, and he has appeared on the nationally syndicated The Bob & Tom Show, Laughs on Fox TV and at several festivals and prominent showcases across the country. He is also the co-founder of the Limestone Comedy Festival, which runs from June 2 to 4, 2016 in Bloomington, Indiana, and the Arch City Comedy Festival, which runs from August 25 to 27, 2016 in Columbus, Ohio, and the host of the Strangers On This Road podcast. He has worked for Funny Business Agency, Comedy Zone, Tribble Run and many clubs around the country.
