From Napkin to blog to book: Matta


Comedy writer John Matta has written for numerous comedy, sketch and cartoon shows, but he is most well-known for what he has written on napkins.

MattaNapkin is his daily blog of single-panel comics drawn on napkins. What began as a joke on a napkin to amuse his wife turned into a daily pastime that only the internet could love. Over time, Matta has opened his napkin drawer up to his comedy buddies and some famous names such as Kurt Russell (who drew a Snake of course), an emotional Dave Koechner, and Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet.

As Matta approaches his 1000th napkin, he is coming out with a book due May 6, and while you could tear out the pages and slip them under your martini, the pages will not be as absorbent as their source.
