Mat Alano-Martin began his stand-up career 13 years ago in Bloomington, Ind. He's got a home at the Comedy Attic and he teamed up with its owner, Jared Thompson, back in 2013 to create the Limestone Comedy Festival, which they now run with Dwight Simmons. Alano-Martin came from the punk scene, where he played in several bands -- as the singer, guitarist, bassist and drummer. He just released his third comedy album, Midnight Nachos, and recorded his first half-hour special for Helium. He's got a podcast called Take These Songs, so you should listen to that, too.
