I have been called the Gay White Oprah. Now I don’t really know about that, but I do love giving a place for people to share their story in the hopes of changing viewers lives for the better. I’m gonna let Oprah do her, and I’ll do me.
I grew in Southern Oklahoma and I just can’t seem to lose the accent. I’m a lover of stories. From my early days of acting, to getting my undergrad in Opera, to getting my Masters in Clinical Psychology and working with clients–stories are my life. If you found me in a breakdown, I’d be this guy:
THE GUY WHO CAN TALK TO ANYONE / HE ALWAYS CALLS YOU “SUGAR”. People open up to him within 2 minutes of meeting him. His ideal night is having a glass of wine and knitting away at a baby blanket while watching old Wonder Woman re-runs, as his dog snores on the other end of the couch. Find him at a comic book store nerding out for hours. Also when he feels fat because he ate his feelings, going to Richard Simmons’ class in Beverly Hills is maybe one of the most joyous things anyone can do on a Saturday morning. He’s won 2 game shows and is kinda charmed that way. Hopeful. Caring. Warm. Great stand-up.
Matt Marr is the host of The Dear Mattie Show and the co-founder of Camp Brave Trails. With a Masters in Clinical Psychology, Matt discusses some interesting topics on this week’s show. Matt explains his two main driving forces — the critic and the muse — and how these two often contradict each other. He also discusses the five kinds of emotions he wants his audience to feel, and why that’s such an important piece to his brand.
