Matt Wright – At Home Here in Newfoundland & Labrador

Occupation: Comedian

Place of Birth: Gander, NL

Currently Resides in what city: St. John’s, NL

Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a coffee?

Fixed Coffee & Baking (I’m typing this from there).

Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a pint?

Christian’s. I’m not sure why. I guess I’m charmed by the complete lack of personal space. The Underbelly Speakeasy (under the Yellow Belly Brewery) is a great spot too.

Where in Newfoundland & Labrador would we stand to see your favourite view?

For Newfoundland as a whole I’d say Greenspond. For St. John’s I love taking my dog to Quidi Vidi Harbour.

What’s the one dish you crave when you’re away?

My dad’s pan fried cod. I’ve been spoiled with fresh seafood since I was a boy.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Newfoundland & Labrador:

1. Go to Yuk Yuk’s. It’s a cabaret style club run by awesome people and many say it’s the nicest in the country.

2. Go check out some live music. The music scene here is unbelievable. Preferably in a small venue where you can go dance with some locals.

3. Learn how to do that wink/head tilt combo without looking like a perv.

What makes Newfoundland & Labrador such a special place on earth for you?

The people. Bunch of charmers.
