Growing up as the fat dorky kid, Dr. Matthew McKeague quickly learned the power of comedy to make people hate him less. Later, a 5th-grade teacher told him that he was like an “even darker Steven King” after hearing his rhyming poem about shark attacks. Surprisingly, his classmates approved too. So Matt kept studying storytelling until he became one of those silly doctors who can’t save you if you’re choking on a hot dog. Matt's first book "Darker Seuss: Extra Grim Fairy Tales of Even Grimmer Existence" quickly became "Number 1 New Release" on Amazon in Humorous Verse, driven by Matt's unique satirical comedy that should stand the test of time rather than becoming outdated in a week. Matt's style is one part wacky, one part dark, and one part heartfelt film from the 1980s featuring underdogs and awkward misfits. Sardonic, rebellious, and smart with a mix of intentional stupidity, Matt strives to make audiences laugh while also contemplating life's (sometimes) harsh realities.
