José Mathias is a standup comedian and professional stutterer.

José Mathias is an Australian comedian who stutters.

José first performed comedy while sipping vodka out of a water bottle* in a dingy Glebe bar. He has since shared stages with fixtures of the Australian comedy scene such as Luke Heggie, Seizure Kaiser, Rose Callaghan, and Dilruk Jayasinha at booked and open mic rooms. José accepted an official Roast Battle invitation from fellow comedian Nate Eubanks, which he won and followed with a kiss to Nate’s cheek. In 2018 José performed standup on The Gong Show with Luka Muller and won $50 in coins.

José is based in Sydney and Melbourne and is available for bookings.

José has written for numerous organisations and magazines and publishes content that is highly inappropriate for the workplace on his blog.

*José no longer drinks. Sorry to disappoint. It’s totally cool if you want to drink though, he just doesn’t
