& comedian

With his passion for music and comedy, Griffo’s show is what you get if Ben Folds and Flight of the Concords had a lovechild.  He combines music with comedic lyrics. Griffo sings, plays ukulele, guitar and piano. He's been featured on FunnyorDie, YouTube, and Buzzfeed. Chicago Sun Times said his show is “both toe-tapping and rib-tickling”.

He's released 3 alb‍‍‍ums, recently finished a tv pilot and is constantly performing live.

The latest album

My Brother's Friend Jerome

This album was a long collaboration between Matt Griffo and friends of his in Chicago that are musicians and comedians.
Recorded in his home studio in Chicago from 2009 to 2015.
Matt writes most of his music in his studio and then when he performs it in front of an audience, looks back at the lyrics and makes notes of which lines got the biggest laughs. From their, he cuts the lyrics that got the least response and adds in new lyrics that get bigger laughs from the audience, much like a stand-up comedian.
This album came into fruition from years of writing and testing material in front of audiences.
