The Last 12 Years, Matt Billon has been making a name for himself on the Canadian Comedy Circuit. Whether it's taking aim - with a pellet gun, no less - at insensitive siblings or bemoaning the fact he can never meet a girl who remembers her own phone number, Billon draws humor from his own life, no matter how embarrassing or incriminating. Matt's originally from Canada but calls comedy clubs across North America home.
Matt's solid reputation for his witty, creative and unassumingly clever material has landed him feature appearances and specials such as
the highly-regarded Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, been on Much Music's "Video on Trial", XM Satellite Radio's "Laugh Attack", and has his own one hour special on "The Comedy Network". (Canadian TV)
Billon has been the supporting act for Pauly Shore, Doug Stanhope, Harland Williams, Tommy Chong, Rob Schneider, Tom Green and is currently on tour with Canadian Comedy Legend Mike MacDonald.
A True Comedy Legend
As the son of a career Canadian Air Force officer, MacDonald spent the first 15 years of his life on military bases in Western Europe and Canada. When his father retired from the military, his family settled in Ottawa. In 1978, at the age of 23, MacDonald tried his own brand of stand-up comedy at some of the local clubs before moving to Toronto, and eventually was performing throughout Canada and the States. As his fame grew, MacDonald appeared on numerous TV shows including Late Night with David Letterman, The Arsenio Hall Show, and of course Just For Laughs. He has also written and starred in three CBC/Showtime specials of his own: Mike MacDonald; On Target; My House! My Rules; and Happy As I Can Be.
In 2011, MacDonald was diagnosed with hepatitis C and in April 2012, his illness progressed to the point where his liver and his kidneys shut down and he was immediately put on the waiting list for a liver transplant. Friends organized a campaign to collect donations to support MacDonald and to help cover his medical expenses. On March 17, 2013 MacDonald underwent a successful seven-hour liver transplant operation. Right now family, especially his wife Bonnie, is central to his continued recovery and renewed sense of just how important life really is.
