Online dating, cats, Scrabble, dietary supplements, Canada -- the list of topics covered in comedian Matt Graham's autobiographical one-man show This Too Shall Suck reads like the index for a random and strange encyclopedia. That might be because Graham has had a rather random and strange life. A stand-up comic who once shared an apartment with fellow comedians Marc Maron and David Cross, Graham was a writer on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Saturday Night Live before eventually quitting stand-up. He went on to a successful career playing Scrabble professionally (no joke), among other pursuits. With Suck, Graham returns to performing on stage, telling the hilarious and engaging story of his life thus far. Learn More
