Brain Humor Paperback – December 11, 2013
by Matty Goldberg (Author)
Matty Goldberg was a nerd who never fit in. Surviving a brain tumor at age 20 only made things worse. Stand-up comedy became Matty’s only way to connect with others, advancing through the ranks of the New York scene, doing commercials with NBA star Dwayne Wade, and playing the legendary clubs of Los Angeles, he never had any close friends… until he met Angelo Bowers. After Angelo’s tragic death, Matty was left once again living in his sister’s basement with comedy as his only defense against loneliness, self-doubt, and depression. Having embraced the lessons learned on his journey, the simple message Matty carries is not only true in the world of stand-up comedy, but everywhere: Success isn’t about fame or fortune or revenge or tricking someone into sleeping with you. It’s all about doing what you love.

Remember To Love and Make Them Laugh!

Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase
The pain of stand up comedy and losing a best friend are all too real in this book. Mattys own brush with death is also covered in unflinching detail, with a raw and bleak honesty. Mattys friend, Angelo Bowers, gave unconditional love and respect to everybody. I wish I knew the man. Its so horrible when a completely original comic mind is robbed of life so early, but Matty capturing his essence in this book is wonderful. Brain Humor inspires me to work harder, to enjoy every day and to make people laugh. I guess it is that simple after all, I just needed a great book to remind me. Thanks Matty!
