Matt Walsh

Matt Walsh is known to many as Trotter of the Upright Citizens Brigade. To others, he’s Kevin Beekin from Dog Bites Man or Ranger Glen from Reno 911. To less observant non-nerds, he’s “that guy” from The Hangover, Role Models, I Love You Man, Semi-Pro, and Step Brothers. To us at Earwolf, he’s one of our favorite guests!
