Listen to the episode here:
We’ve always known that Matt Doyle was one of the most talented performers in on the musical theatre stage, but with the spring 2016 release of “Dents,” a web-based comic book which he created with his life-long best friend Beth Behrs (Two Broke Girls, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit…), the public was exposed to a new, more nerdy, side of the actor.
The engrossing comic explores such topics as the impact of climate change, fear of those different than yourself, coming to terms with who you are as a person, fighting for what you believe in and much, much more.
