The Altamont Theatre continues its ongoing foray into funny with professional tennis player turned comedian Matt Kosta. His sarcastic musings on life’s daily irritations appear regularly on “The Tonight Show,” and this year, Kosta hosted his first stand-up special, Comedy Central Presents: Michael Kosta.
More, from Kostas bio, “You may recognize Michael’s sarcastic banter from his appearances on ‘Chelsea Lately’ on the E! Channel, TruTV’s ‘Smoking Gun Presents,’ Yahoo!’s ‘OMG411,’ and Showtime’s ‘Live Nude Comedy.’ He has also hosted pilots for MTV, NBC, and Comedy Central. ” Kosta has performed at the HBO Comedy Festival in Aspen as well as the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal; at the latter, he was invited to perform at a Gala where he (somehow) followed Pamela Anderson.
“Not just a pretty face, Michael can also be heard on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show and on The Playboy Comedy Channel on XM/ Sirius Satellite radio. For two seasons Michael hosted CCHA All Access on the Fox Sports Network, where he won a Michigan Emmy as a performer/host.
“Michael lives in Los Angeles where he hopes to soon become famous and forget all the little people. You should sleep with him.”
Kosta performs Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. $12. Tickets at myaltamont.com.
