Matthew H. "Matt" Bennett (born November 13, 1991)[1] is an American actor, singer and screenwriter.

Early life

Bennett grew up in Massapequa, New York, and attended Massapequa High School.


After appearing in numerous commercials, Bennett began his television career as Greg the Intern in the pilot episode of the Comedy Central sketch comedy series, Michael & Michael Have Issues.

He starred in and co-wrote the short film Text Me in 2010. Bennett later starred in The Virginity Hit, released in October 2010. Described as a "documentary style comedy," Bennett stated in an interview that the film's "directors gave us cameras in our spare time, and he said do pranks, talk amongst yourselves, do things and film that. So we did, and most of the movie is what we filmed. So I feel like 20% is scripted but the rest is all real."

Bennett co-starred as Robbie Shapiro in the Nickelodeon sitcom, Victorious. He was nominated for a 2011 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award (UK) in the category of "Nick UK's Funniest Person". The show ran from March 27, 2010 to February 2, 2013.

Bennett independently released an EP of songs that he wrote, Warm Fuzzies, on May 20, 2012. In March 2013 it was announced that Bennett would host a web series for the YouTube channel Nerdist. On the series, entitled "Nerdy Jobs," Bennett will go behind the scenes of many "Nerdy" jobs to show how interesting they are.
