    • Matt Johnston(About the message of his upcoming film, Cowboy Smoke): Hopefully to see a project like this and your sense of empathy kinda grows and you realize that it's not such a cut and dry issue anymore. I mean there are real people involved and no one person's life is worth any more than anyone else's.

    • Matt Johnston(To fans of ITaT who get the idea to try it for themselves): I'd say, to the adrenaline junkies out there, who want to take things on our show and turn them into ways to beat boredom in their own town, this: you may get your own show from this behavior. It's a one in a billion chance. Most likely, though, you will spend serious time behind bars learning how many cigarettes doing "Bubba's" laundry is worth. Way to think it though.

  • ...I really got to see him shine on stage in a seedy little comedy club in TriBeCa late one Friday night...

    I have seen every episode of Matt\'s show \"It Takes a Thief\" on the Discovery Channel and have heard some of his hilarious Sirius Satellite show as well. I find him to be a true talent either with just audio or in living color. However, it must be stated that I really got to see him shine on stage in a seedy little comedy club in TriBeCa late one Friday night.

    His since of humor is second only to his incredibly quick wit. Everything he says makes you think, \"That\'s what I was going to say!\" Only he says it faster and funnier.moreless
