It is quite an achievement for a comedian to be playing the Bell Centre. It is even more impressive when that comedian is a Canadian/Quebecer. It is most impressive when he is playing not just one night but three.
Martin Matte is a francophone comedian who started his career as a DJ at two Montreal radio stations, CKMF and CKOI, before switching to stand up. He began doing sets at Montreal's Juste Pour Rire comedy festival. Then he moved on to hosting television show "Allo Prof!". His career as a stand up began to get him really noticed in the comedy circles and he started winning Oliviers (Quebec comedy awards).
Since the year 2000 Matte's one man shows have won him rave reviews and huge audiences. Along with these shows, his continued work on television, as the host for French galas at Juste Pour Rires, and other awards have made him one of the most successful comedians working in Quebec today.
