Laughter
is the Best
Medicine

A Virtual Celebration and Comedy Performance

Benefiting Programs and Equipment at Ascension Seton Williamson

Presented by the Seton Women’s Development Board

Featuring Comedian Matthew Broussard

Born in New Jersey, raised in Atlanta, and, in 2012, winner of Houston’s Funniest Person, Matthew Broussard is not exactly sure where he’s from. Matthew earned a degree in Applied Mathematics and a job as a financial analyst before moving to West Hollywood to pursue stand-up comedy full time. His brand of playful, witty humor covers topics from physics & grammar to the hardships of looking like an 80s movie villain. Aside from his popular webcomic, mondaypunday.com, he can be seen performing on Comedy Central, Conan O’Brien Show and Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon.
