Matt Baker did a family show at the Lake Stevens Boys and Girls Club. People of all ages attended and the feedback was great! one 3 year old boy kept coming back and asking when the funny guy was going to be there. The moms in the audience told us they loved the show. We plan to have him back!

"What a great Entertainer"

We had our annual "Dinner and A Show" for an elementary school. We were lucky to book Matt Baker as our Entertainer. Children, parents, and even grandparents were entertained. I watched the crowd laugh with hysteria and be completely engaged with Matt Baker. I would highly recommend everyone to book Matt Baker for ANY comedy act.
