Winnipeg Comedy Fest Interview: Tim Gray & Matt Nightingale, stand-up comics and members of the sketch troupe HUNKS

Filed under: Kinda Sorta Maybe Like a Podcast

Tim Gray and Matt Nightingale are veterans of the Winnipeg stand-up comedy scene, and this year they're both a part of the local contingent at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. Besides their accomplishments as stand-up comics (Gray's first comedy album comes out this June, while Nightingale is a regular host at Rumor's Comedy Club), they're also members of the sketch troupe HUNKS. Their work with HUNKS -- which also features Dana Smith, Quinn Greene, and Rory Fallis -- has included a pair of 5-star Winnipeg Fringe Festival shows and has taken them to festivals like JFL NorthWest, San Francisco Sketchfest, and the Montreal Sketch Festival. (They also have their own very funny weekly podcast which you can subscribe to on iTunes and Google Play Music!)

Last weekend, Paul Little sat down with Gray and Nightingale to talk about their shows at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, their growth as stand-ups over the years, their early success with HUNKS, and a whole lot more fascinating (and ridiculous) stuff. It's our longest podcast yet, but it's also a whole lot of fun!

If you're in Winnipeg this week, you can see Tim Gray tonight at The Winnipeg Show on Thursday, April 6, Tales from Late Night on Friday, April 7, and warming up the "Hot Mess" Gala on Saturday, April 8. Matt Nightingale can be seen Friday, April 7 warming up the "Good Neighbours" Gala and Saturday, April 8 hosting the early show at Rumor's Comedy Club with Mark James Heath.
