Vanlord is a lens into the intriguing world of vanlife told by a guy who lives out of vehicles in North America, the United Kingdom and Australia. That's right, he's got wheel estate all over the world.

After winning Ottawa's Up and Coming Stand Up Comedian Award early in his career, Matt hit the road indefinitely and came to the realization that there's no point paying rent to live in a stranger's place, when you can just park outside of it for free.

Why pay a landlord, when you can be a Vanlord?

His unique lifestyle that he shares on his popular youtube channel Matt Watson Comedy has gotten him featured in New York's Business Insider in the States and ABC News in Australia. He's performed at Just For Laughs 42, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the International Glasgow Comedy Festival, the Aberdeen Comedy Festival, the Perth International Arts Festival, the Adelaide Fringe Festival, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

Don't miss this uplifting comedic journey that reminds the audience their own passions are worth chasing.
