About ManDudeBro

Who or what was ManDudeBro?

ManDudeBro was the improvisational comedy team of Matt Candio, Jon Lunger, Dan Maher and Evan Stutts. Based in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania, the group delighted audiences with their longform improv comedy from 2012 through 2017.

ManDudeBro’s last show was December 29, 2017 at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks. A good time was had by all.

They’ve been official selections of the District Improv Festival (Washington, DC), The NYC Improv Festival (New York, NY), Unscripted New York (New York, NY), the SteelStacks Improv Comedy Festival (Bethlehem, PA) and The Allentown Freak Out Festival (Allentown, PA).

In 2015 ManDudeBro was voted “best local comedian” by the readers of Lehigh Valley Style magazine. Proof of this honor exists on their website to this very day.
