PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Humor heals all wounds...eventually. Enjoy the deep laughs emanating from surviving life's darkest moments in this funny, poignant stand-up comedy show about the journey back to sanity. The Addicts' Comedy Tour is a stand-up show about overcoming life challenges with laughter and strength. Drawing upon their shared friendship and experiences around often persistent addictions, nationally headlining in-demand comedians Kurtis Matthews and Andy Gold tour together to share colorful stories about life, love, jail, rehab and recovery, and keep you laughing along the way.

Kurtis Matthews has toured nationally and internationally since 1984. That same year, he also embarked upon his own journey of recovery from alcoholism and drug abuse after an automobile accident resulted in his second DUI and jail time. Since 84, he's starred in the BBCs 'Find me the Funny' and appeared on A and E, VH1 and a number of other TV and radio shows. Aside from the tour, he performs in multiple anonymous recovery conventions, rehabs and private fundraisers each year. In 1999, he founded the San Francisco Comedy College (SFCC), which has become the most attended stand-up comedy school in America.

Andy Gold has appeared in festivals and competitions all over the country, including the Boston Comedy Festival, San Diego Comedy Festival, Laugh Your Asheville Off and Comcast’s Trial by Laughter Comedy Festival. Andy’s comedy has also been featured on Hulu and he can be heard regularly on Kevin Hart’s Laugh out Loud network on Sirius XM and Audible’s Punchlines. Andy also recorded a full length special for Dry Bar Comedy called Dreamcatcher.

Andy draws humor from all parts of his life, especially the nearly 10 years he spent in active heroin addiction which has made Andy is a favorite at treatment centers and recovery events across the country. Andy began his comedy career just six months after a (temporally) fatal overdose prompted Andy's family to intervene and convince him to go to treatment. A prolific writer, Andy’s material runs the gamut from sharing colorful jokes about life, dating, jail, rehab, family and recovery and it’s all tied together by one thing and one thing only: really big laughs.
