With his towering frame, faintly sinister good looks and a mild case of Asperger syndrome, Matt McClowry does not easily fit the stereotypical image of a stand-up comic. But after a few moments of watching him on stage, it’s clear he’s a natural – with a laconic yet still faintly annoyed delivery underscoring sharply observed gripes about a host of modern absurdities.

McClowry visits Auburn on Friday night, May 10 for Comedy at the Ave at the historic theater, 10 Auburn Ave.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m.

Originally from Detroit where he was voted “Best Local Comic” by the Metro Times, McClowry now makes his home in New York City. He and has been receiving national exposure, touring coast to coast and posting appearances at many prestigious comedy festivals, like the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival with Dave Chappelle. He’s also racking up contest victories at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta as well the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, and The San Francisco Comedy Competition.

He has appeared on the AXS TV series “Gotham Comedy Live”, was a member of primary cast of the FOX series “Laughs”, and his album, “Uncomfortable” can be heard on Pandora, Spotify, and SiriusXM.

The show is for an 18-and-over-only audience.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for students and seniors. Buy them at the door or online.
