Instinct Insta Hottie of the Week is Manhattan Cutie Bobby Maddox

It can be hard to find a gem in a city like New York. Manhattanite Bobby Maddox is that and then some, all of which makes him an easy pick for Instinct Magazine's Hottie of the Week.

The Big Apple resident, who currently calls Hell's Kitchen is home but is originally from the South in North Carolina, is one of the most genuinely friendly people you'll ever meet. 

Don't let the muscular exterior and serious face fool you... there's a big ole sweetheart that is waiting to give you a massive hug when you see him (just don't be creepy). 

Let's not forget the body though... which is a delicious treat to gawk at before the holidays begin.

Here are some fun acts about our current Hottie:

Favorite TV show: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Favorite Movie: Incredibles 2

Favorite Snack: Berries and Greek Yogurt

Favorite Cheat Meal: Pizza

What He Does for the Gay Community: Spreads love, positivity and encouragement.

Dating? Yes.

Fun Fact? He can sing and does well at it!

With A Name Like Prada, He's Got To Be Good

 

We've been watching this man's eyebrows for some time now.  He's been tagging us on our Instagram account (instinctmagazine) and we LOVE IT!

So we reached out to @gprada - Giovanni Prada by dropping him a quick message on his Insta and to our happiness, he picked up, even though he was packing for a trip to Hawaii. 


Instinct:  Ooh! Fun!  Hawaii! Okay, we'll make this first chat quick ... Explain that milk man costume ... and the milk doesn't look like milk. 

Giovanni: Adam, milk does the body good. and so does the milkman ... and I may have put a little Bailey's in my milk so I can share at the Halloween party.

Nice, speaking of liquids, is Veuve in your blood? They giving you free sh..stuff yet?

Haha, there's never a bad time to have a glass of Veuve. They also know how to throw a fashionable party.  Ever been?

I have not, no. I need to make time for one.

What's the CrossFit stat you are most proud of?

I'm most proud of my 405 pound squat and my 36:32 minute Murph. 

 

 


I don't want to take up too much of your time, but you have some hypnotic eyebrows. Are you a single gay man or are you just into having cats sit on your bum, an unknown/unnamed fetish.

I'm happily married 8 years now and he cats... I don't know.  Maybe there's a natural attraction to my bum.  Must be the squats.

Haha.  Congrats. And Boo!  He better pay homage to those brows. One final text. What's the occasion for the trip to Hawaii and where is either your favorite place to vacation or your most epic vacation?

Hawaii has some great surf and can't beat the island life. It's a nice escape during the hectic holidays.  Epic? I prefer a quiet meditation retreat alone. You know, some me time.

Haha. Nice. Last question. What is your favorite pic on your Insta?

Lol, does video count?  I crack myself up with my flossing dance video in PV. I may have been a little tipsy.

OMG. I was so posting that one no matter what you said.  It's hilarious. And shows off your hips. 

Colombian hips don't lie.

Hips are Colombian ... what part of you is Italian?

Instinct Insta Hottie of the Week: Sexy Personal Trainer Kendrick Brown

I was perusing through my Instagram one day when I came across the profile of a dude who just screamed the term “sexy” the minute I opened his page.

That man’s name is Kendrick Brown, who resides in an area directly between San Francisco and Los Angeles, California. He is sort of a Clark Kent with bigger muscles in that he has two completely separate jobs, one of which entails him being a personal trainer. Then again, with those arms, is it that shocking that this is his profession?

He is building his personal training resume by going above and beyond for every single client of his. Outside of his job, and from getting to know him, he is a phenomenal human being with a big heart that may look menacing at first but is a true softie with a smile that could light up an entire room.

Here are some facts about our Hottie of the Week:

  • He was born and raised in Louisiana. He was one of the lucky survivors of Hurricane Katrina when it hit that area in 2005.
  • Personal training, as mentioned before, is his passion. It’s something that has been doing for over 10 years and really enjoys it. He even considers himself a teacher in this field, preparing clients to be self-sufficient in the gym so that they don’t need him. He’s still there for them, of course.
  • He’s a huge sports fan. This includes teams like the New Orleans Saints, LSU Tigers and Golden State Warriors just to name a few.
  • His love of music spans genres that include hip-hop, pop, R&B and oldies. Jodeci is one of his favorite groups of all time.
  • He’s an extremely positive person who radiates upbeat energy. This is someone who can find a bright spot in many situations.

Kendrick also provided some wonderful quotes about his upbringing and being a gay man when I chatted with him this week.

“I have been through many things in my life,” he said.  “I was raised in deep south where being gay was the worst thing you could be besides being black, and I am both. I firmly believe God loves me because if he didn’t, I would not have made it through the things I have been through and I am a better man for it. I am a born leader who leads by example and treat everyone the way I would like to be treated. I owe that to my mom who raised me since I was 8 days old.”

He also talked about his sexuality, saying “I am a proud gay man. I am currently out to all my friends which for years I was too scared to be completely open to everyone. However, with the help of my current employer creating an environment that celebrates diversity and my circle of friends, I was able to have nothing but positive experiences as I came out to my close friends and loved ones. I am so proud of the hard work that everyone has done in the LGTBQ community because yes, we still have a long way to go but the change has begun."

"Being gay is no longer a Scarlet Letter, if anything is a proud badge to me. The world is changing for the better and I owe that to all the men and women who have marched and fought were proud to be who they were when it meant risking their lives, to them I am so thankful.”

FreakySexyMexi is This Week's Instinct Insta Hottie With His Bewitching Body

There’s no more perfect person for our Instinct Insta Hottie of the Week on Halloween than 31-year-old Jorge Rincón better known as FreakySexyMexi, tech professional by day and a freaky Go Go Boy by night. The proud Latino hails from San Jose, CA where he does volunteer work with immigrant communities, but also knows how to get down and dirty—which you will see from his NSFW Instagram account. FSM floods our feeds daily with ass shots and seductive poses that will raise spirits and haunt your dreams.

We wanted to know a little more about Jorge, the man behind FreakySexyMexi, to see what inspires the Latino hottie to be the freakiest in the streets.

What do you like about living in San Jose?

Love the weather, the proximity to the ocean and how close I am to national parks and outdoor activities. 

What do you do for work?

I work for tech company doing developer support.

What do you do for fun/hobbies?

Go Go dancing, camping, traveling, painting and recently trying to learn how to sew.

Something interesting about yourself you've never told anyone:

I love playing video games, I have a bag (backpack) and shoe addiction, and I buy something through Amazon Prime almost every week. 

What/who inspires you?

WHO: my mother, my sister, Maria Felix, Frida Kahlo, Maya Angelou, Eartha Kitt (strong women) and my fiancé

WHAT: music, art, movies, nature and the gay community 

Single/Taken/It's complicated?

Engaged to my boyfriend of 5 years =)

What do you look for in guys?

I'm not on the look-out, but what I'm usually attracted to is humor, kindness, drive and intellectual stimulation (of course a nice butt and thick arms don't hurt)

Boxers/Briefs/Commando?

Commando since I was 18 years old

Anything else you'd like to share?

I've always been proud of my heritage, my culture and my people. Born and raised in Mexico. Proud to be a hard working immigrant. I am forever thankful for everything I have achieved and everything that is yet to come; from obtaining my master's degree in advertising to getting married soon. I am also proud of my sexuality. Like many others, it took me years before I became comfortable in my own skin. But now I understand this is who I was meant to be. I am free. I feel happy. I own my sexuality, my creativity and my passions. I hope that directly or indirectly those who know me personally or follow me on social media can see that we can be sexual beings, caring, creative and accepting at the same time. I hope to inspire others to be themselves, own their mistakes and their passions and make this world a better place once small action at a time.

Kevin Symes is the Cutie With a Booty in the Briefs that Won't Quit

This week’s Instinct Insta Hottie of the Week is one of our favorite neighbors from across the pond. Kevin Symes is a sexy guy with a love of underwear from Liverpool who just released his debut album Scripture under the nom de plume SoundBoy.

If you haven’t trolled the 25-year-old’s Instagram for his daily dose of thirsty THOT shots you may have had the pleasure of reading his contributions here on Instinct Magazine. The boy is STUFFED with talent!

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

It was too hot to even think last night, so naturally I slept in a jockstrap and booty shorts

A post shared by Kevin Symes (@kevinsymes) on

 

 

Scripture dropped on October 19th and is Symes’ narrative as a gay man who has experienced the trials and tribulations that come with the territory. Some of our favorite tracks are Zephyr, Sunday School, and Confessional Booth where you get to hear Symes’ candid coming out story.

We wanted to learn more about the boy who’s bursting at the briefs so we asked Symes some questions we’ve been dying to ask:


What do you love the most about living in Liverpool/UK?

There is a massive amount of culture here in Liverpool. Obviously, we are famous for The Beatles and Sporty Spice, but there is so much to do. There are a lot of districts that cater to everyone, and a very strong Gay scene, which is always a bonus!

What is your occupation?

I work as an account manager for a business here in the UK, which isn’t as boring as it sounds, I promise! I also work as a songwriter, as well as a contributor to Instinct Magazine! How meta!


What do you do for fun/hobbies?

Right now, the gym is my focus. That takes up five of my seven nights a week, but somehow, I manage to find the time to create music too! I’ve just written and recorded my first album, which I’m super happy with.

A post shared by Kevin Symes (@kevinsymes) on


What is your album/music about?

I wanted to make a statement with my first release, so I wanted to create a concept album. The record is called ‘Scripture’, and it details my journey on love, loss, faith and being a gay man. That makes it sound super heavy but its full of absolute BANGERS. It’s taken influence from Britney, Madonna and the always iconic Robyn. My name doesn’t really scream ‘pop star’, so I decided to release the album under the name ‘SoundBoy’.


When did you start making music?

I’ve always been a musical child. I think we’ve all locked our bedroom doors and did the choreography to Britney’s ‘I’m a Slave 4 U’ in the mirror at some point, but when I studied music at University, that’s when I really knew I wanted to write and produce for a living.


Something interesting about yourself you've never told anyone:

Ooh that’s a tough one! Something I don’t really talk about much is my work with Queer Notions, a nonprofit organization in Liverpool. It’s a safe place where individuals can come to discuss their issues with sexuality, mental health, or if they just want somebody to listen to them.

Coming out wasn’t easy for me. I was made to leave home, I was ousted by a lot of my immediate family, and it was tough, I won’t lie! I didn’t feel as though I had anybody to talk to about it, which would have helped massively, so if there’s any way I can give back, and do for others what I couldn’t do for myself, then I’ve done a good job. I speak about my coming out story on ‘Confessional Booth’, on the album.

What/who inspires you?

In life, my friends inspire me. I’m filled to the brim with pride when they are successful in anything! That really makes me want to push myself to do my best.

Professionally, I’m massively inspired by Roisin Murphy. She’s been a huge influence on the music I make, and she’s so candid in interviews. She knows her shit and she works a crowd like nobody I’ve seen before. She would be my dream person to do an article on!


Single/Taken/It's complicated?

Single! I haven’t been in a relationship for two years now. After my last one ended, I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t dive headfirst into anything that I didn’t feel 100% confident in. The song ‘Lost Love’ on my album is about that.

Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to be in a relationship. If any American guys want to take me on a date, then I’m down!

What do you look for in guys?

Of course, personality is a big turn-on for me. If you can make me laugh or know who Emma Chawner is, I’ll automatically be attracted to you, but physically, I love big arms, big legs and a big chest. A big dick and bubble butt will also sell me on you, but that’s the vers in me talking.

I’d just like to thank you guys for taking an interest in me! It’s nice to see my thicc self as ‘hot’! Very flattering. I’m not an insta-model, I don’t take professional pictures, so it’s good for my ego that you think I’m handsome.

Instinct Insta Hottie of the Week: Joey JoJo

We found jballa74 on our Instagram TAGGED tab, but we’re going to have to seek him out in San Antonio, Texas where he is a budget analyst by day and a man of our dreams at night.

The first thing you may see when cruising Joey's Instagram is that tattoo so that's where we started our interview (the following is paraphrased) branching out to discuss Harry Potter, weigh loss, and what men catch his attention.



Instinct: So, let’s ask the question.  What’s going on with the tattoo?

jballa74: I added it two years ago.  I always loved The Lion King and I knew I wanted one about that movie and that saying just came up as a perfect fit.  I think it epitomizes me.  I try not to sweat the small things and try to keep calm when deciding on what to do in life.

 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

TGIF!!

A post shared by Joey JoJo (@jballa74) on

 


Since you are a huge fan of The Lion King, who is your favorite character and who do you identify with the most?

Favorite is going to have to be Simba, but I think my personality is more in line with Pumba.


The tattoo is the first thing you see on your Instagram, it does make a statement.

Yeah, from a distance, it’s that hard core tattoo design, gangster style if you will, and maybe that is like me. When you see me from a distance, I could be considered intimidating, but when you get closer to me and the tattoo, you realize that is not the case. The intimidation may come from my resting bitch face, or my “in the zone” look which I usually have while at the gym and not paying attention.


Ah, yes the gym.  What is your exercise regimen? And let’s talk about that weight loss.

I’m there about 5 to 6 times a week.  I started losing the weight about 7 years ago.  At my biggest, I was 315 lbs and a 46 inch waist.  When I was younger, I played football, then quit. The football player style exercising stopped, but the football player style eating continued.

 

 

I decided to make a change and joined a gym, but didn’t go for a year.  Then I decided I wanted to stop being sweaty all the time, being always out of breath.

When I started going, I was exercising in the morning, you know, the fear of people judging you was there, but then I realized it was all in my head and I was too self-conscious.  No one was looking at me and I was there to work out and lose weight. I started off walking on the treadmill. The walk became a jog, the jog became a run … and I started eating right.  I knew what to do, I just needed to do it.

My favorite is still leg days on Sunday and I’m still going early, around 5 AM.

Where are you now in the weight and working out and wait, are you out?

Two years I was down to 190 lbs.  And now I am putting on muscle and am up to 206 lbs with more muscle and a 32 inch waist.  I came out when I was 28 years old and it was when I was 29 that the weight loss happened.


Now we know where you’re at, out, and working out, but where do you live?

I’m in San Antonio, it’s cool, and it’s kinda in the middle of things.

It is not as liberal as Austin. There are 4 main bars on a common strip here. There used to be a great place to go to called Bonham Exchange. It was the place to be with three main areas of entertainment that had their own type of music and presence. Then the girls started going there to dance, then the straight guys followed, then the radio station started going there on Fridays.  It used to be super gay, but now you could say it is more “gay friendly.”

(Super crushing on this guy, I decide to dig a little deeper.  I mean we had the same birthdays. That has to mean something, lol)

So what is your type of man if there is one?

I don’t have a type per se. I like a variety of men, so no type.  I just found out during my recent trip to Folsom Street Fair that I have a new appreciation of furry guys.  Looks fade though and a person’s personality is his personality.  Personality is important to me.

As a bigger guy, then losing the weight, when you lost that weight and guys that said no to you before because of the weight, but now say yes or want a yes from you, what are your thoughts on that?

Once again, it’s the personality. So if they were not saying hello to me when I was bigger or if they wouldn’t even respond, those guys are hahah, haha, ha (no elaboration needed).

 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Every rejection, negative word, or judgement has been nothing but fuel to my fire.

A post shared by Joey JoJo (@jballa74) on

 


San Antonio is home, where did you grow up?

I was born in Mississippi, dad was in the military.  He was stationed in San Antonio, met my mother, and promised her family that when he was done with the military, they would return to San Antonio and that’s where I still am.


Nature or Nurture?

I was born gay.  If you weren’t born gay then you could learn to be straight and I have no desire to learn how to be straight.  I’m not attracted to females as I tried the straight thing before.


Instinct readers (cough, me) may want to know if you're single.

I’ve been single for about two, going on three years. I am looking to date somebody.  Well, it’s more like I’m going to let things happen instead of looking, looking, looking.


We’ve been talking for a while and I can see the humor in the “Not as douchey as I appear” statement on your profile, but what about the “Gryffindor, duh!”?

I’m a super nerd, love to read books.  And I loved the Harry Potter Series.  I identify as a Gryffindor since I as well believe I stand up for what is right, try to do the right thing.  I actually took the test on pottermore.com, with the sorting hat and all.


Why do you think gay men relate to Harry Potter?

It’s a story of somebody who is neglected or out of place, and he finds his place. It’s like the gay life, I mean he lived in the closet, didn’t get along with family …


Just like The Lion King, what character do you relate to or would want to be in the Harry Potter series?

Hermione, because she is a bad bitch, but she is also very knowledgeable.


The last question, where we should have began, what does your Instagram name mean?

J is for Joey or JoJo, and the 74 is my football number.

Southwest search engine currently being used to find flights to San Antonio so we can ask Joey some more questions while looking into those deep beautiful brown eyes.  It might be hard since he is 6’3” but we can hop … and hope.

Instinct Insta Hottie of the Week: Australian Beauty Phoenix Keating

It’s not that often you come across a guy with a genuinely unique look. And that’s why our latest Hottie of the Week stands out.

The closest comparison is maybe Freddie Mercury in his prime, but with softer features and an even more chiseled physique.

We don’t know a whole lot about Phoenix. He’s Australian, he doesn’t really ever have clothes on in his Instagram posts (which is great!)—and that’s about all we’ve got at the moment. Boy if he isn’t nice to look at!

Be sure and follow Phoenix on Instagram for more: @keenixfeeting​

This Week's InstaHottie, Bradley Austen. DAMN!

Another week, another InstaHottie! This week we had the pleasure of chatting to Bradley Austen, who we have been fans of for a long while! We spoke gym routines, style and celebrity crushes, enjoy!

Hi Bradley! Where am I speaking to you from today?

 

Hey hey, I’m all the way in London, United Kingdom! 

 

You’re this week’s InstaHottie at Instinct, how do you feel about that title?

 

Ha ha, what a great title, I am pretty honoured. 

 

What does your day to day fitness routine look like?

 

I am a fitness Freak, I go 6 days a week. My favourite is leg day, my legs are my strongest muscle. The Hungarian squat is top of the chart along with ‘Glute Kickback’ …. every time I train legs I have a pizza, which is awesome.. Who doesn’t love Pizza. I always get, ‘wtf Brad?’ But honestly, give it a go. It helps grow the glutes! 

My work outs split looks like:

·        legs, biceps and abs 

·        Shoulders, triceps and abs 

·        Chest, biceps and abs 

·        Back, triceps and abs 

Abs get the treat of being worked every day. 

My diet during the week is chicken, rice and sweet potato, stir fry’s,

At the weekend I always treat myself to burger, I love my food too much to be too strict. I am a sucker for fast food,sweets and cake! 

You’re not shy about showing some skin, where does that confidence come from?

 

I Started going to the gym when I was 14 I was always conscious of how my body looked.

I used to be very skinny, the inspiration then came from looking at other men in the gym. As soon as my body started to build and change shape, I was obsessed! I felt like a completely different person and the compliments definitely helped. 

 

You also have a great sense of style, are you influenced by anybody in the media with what you wear, or is it all you?

 

Why thank you - I would say Instagram has massively influenced the way I style myself. There are so many clothing companies that TV personalities now promote. My favourite jeans I like to wear are from Topman: Super Spray, turned up on the ankles, followed by a simple tee, or long sleeve t-shirt - Muscle fit of course!

You’re really family orientated, judging from your Instagram, how important is family to you?

 

I am super close with my family, I always have been. More so, since I left home and relocated to London. I speak to one of my family members at least once a day and try to visit once a month. 

My nieces are adorable, I always forget they follow me on snapchat! they now both pout and started to twerk. One is 9 and the other is 6! 

I tell them everything and I think it’s important including me being gay. 

 

Biggest turn on

 

Pecs, oh my. Pecs all day every day. Same as a straight guy... Tits and arse. 

All-time favourite song?

 

That’s a tricky one, I love music. Especially house! 

But I am a massive fan of Rudimental - ‘feel the love’ also ‘Martin Solveig Place’

I have some great memories of driving around in the summer to those songs. 

 

Favourite place in the world?

 

Theme park in Los Angeles ‘Six Flags Great Adventure’ - I am obsessed with Rollercoasters. I love the Adrenalin rush.

I play Rollercoaster Tycoon still till this day, lame I know. 

Celebrity crush?

 

Ryan Reynolds... Wow 

 

And finally, what’s next for Bradley Austen?

 

Apart from marrying Ryan Reynolds? I’d love to travel around America, I love the States so much

I am currently the brand ambassador HiitMat which is super exciting, they are developing and launching a new piece of technological fitness equipment that assists and tracks your Hiit training. Make sure you keep an eye for new things to come.

Check out this weeks InstaHottie, Josh Popenko!

Happy Wednesday! It's another InstaHottie post, aren't you lucky! Today we are ogling over the Australian hunk Josh Popenko.

With his Instagram account filled with naked pictures, bulging muscles and... goats, it's easy to see why we chose him this week. We spoke to Josh and got to know a little more about him.

 

Hi Josh! Great to speak to you. Where are you today?

 

Hi, Great to speak with you as well ! I'm out in my back patio in Brisbane, Australia. 

We’ve selected you as this week’s InstaHottie! How do you feel about this prestigious title?

 

Although an honour; when I think of my self depreciating humour and piss-taking ways seen on my Instagram, it is a title I never would have expected. However it is an appreciated stroke to the ego, so thank you very much. 

 

You’re quite the exhibitionist, and you’re certainly not shy about showing your body. Where does that confidence come from?

 

At times I think I should be shy about it, but then I watch videos of people streaking and I feel a sort of kinship with them. Like, I get it man, let your little willy fly free. There's also something incredibly rewarding about people seeing your flaws, weird shapes and things you may be concerned about physically and then learning nothing bad happens. No one cares. And neither should I. 

What’s your gym routine like?

 

It's been a truly gruelling process to develop one that works for me. It's taken years of constantly learning and developing ways of pretending to know what I'm doing by discreetly mimicking the buff gym dudes before they clue onto the fact they're being watched and copied. 

 

You feature your pet goats on your Instagram quite a bit! Quite the unconventional pet! Why goats?

 

Aren't they just great? I'm a country kid and have always grown up with farm animals. I guess I didn't want to let living inner city stop me from getting the pets I really wanted. Where there's a will there's a way and I'm a little bit proud of myself for making the dream of owning two beautiful little hoofed idiots in the city a reality. 

You look as good in heels as you do naked, do you enjoy blurring that masculine/feminine line?

 

Thank you and absolutely. Im a piss taker by nature, wether it be making fun of Insta models or poking fun at myself; toying with gender pressures and type casts of sexuality is totally my gig. Plus, after a long hard day on the tools, there's nothing quite like kicking off your work boots, cracking a beer and having a mince around in my pink fluffy heels. 

Butt or bulge?

 

Butt

 

Heels or flats?

 

I think we can guess the answer to that one.

Spice Girls or Destiny’s Child?

 

Destiny's child. Minus Michelle and that other hand break. 

 

Kylie or Dannii?

 

Amy Winehouse. (I'm triggered senseless, Josh)

 

Beer or wine?

 

Bathe me in beer.

And finally, what’s next for Josh Popenko?

 

I've never really travelled and I'm really excited to start doing so. A world of experience and photo opportunities awaits me. Also, 

Youtube the words cross+dressed+farmer. The first video that comes up is a very clear glimpse into my future and honestly, I embrace it. Also, Thanks for the interview, I really enjoyed it!

Go follow Josh on Instagram @JoshPopenko for more hilarious and handsome posts!

InstaHottie Of The Week: Matteo Lane

Who is ready for an early week hottie to get your Monday off to a good start? Of course you are! This weeks InstaHottie is Matteo Lane, the Italian Stallion with a Mexican twist. This funnyman is currently touring his comedy show, and we got a chance to catch up with him before he embarks on his tour!

 

Hi Matteo, a pleasure to speak with you. Where are you speaking to me from today?

 

Buenos Dias!! I’m speaking to you from my boyfriends house in Madrid, Spain. 

 

You’re Instinct Magazines InstaHottie of the week this week. How do you feel about the title?

I feel great! Even though I just got food poisoning from octopus and have a giant rash on my stomach, it still feels good. Now I’m an actual hottie, a man who’s skin feels like it’s on fire. Fuck octopus. Aliens of the sea. 

 

You’ve really got the 1920’s Strongman look down to a T, with the moustache and body. We are totally here for it. What’s your gym routine like?

 

 I think my Italian and Mexican heritage is why my mustache is so prominente. I’ve had this mustache since I was 7 years old. My gym routine is one my sister gave me. 6 days a week, focus on each muscle group, and eat a lot. It’s pretty boring but I have a hectic life, it’s nice to have some kinda routine to stabilize it. 

 

Aside from showing your assets on Instagram, you also have a Podcast! Tell us more about that.

 

Yes! Comedian Emma Willmann and I decided to start a podcast called Inside the Closet. Basically we sit and chat with no script, plans or any real agenda. We like to have a free flow conversation. It always ends up about sex. Or dating, but I often do my Barbara from shark tank impression. 

You’ve appeared on some really high profile gigs! The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers and Adam Devine’s Comedy House Party to name a few! How important is Comedy to you?

 

What if after all those credits you listed my reaction was just me shrugging my shoulders. Haha. It’s obviously very important. It’s the first thing I’ve done in life that feels right to me. I love comics, I love the grind and I love the stage.  I was a storyboard artist for fashion ads and Tv commercials for years, and then 6 years ago found comedy and haven’t looked back since. 

 

Being a gay man yourself, is there is a different atmosphere being a comedian? Does your humor come from a different place?

 

I think at the core I’m the same as every other comic. Angry, neurotic etc. But being gay definitely gives me a unique look at life. I’m coming from an outside place, looking in. So maybe my jokes and observations feel slightly different because of that? But I generally don’t think of myself as anything but a comic. (Sides the fact I usually open my set singing in my falsetto, a Puccini aria) 

 

You used to be an Opera singer, you’re a master of all trades! Are we going to be treated for a rendition of Ave Maria any time soon?

 

Haha I used to sing Ave Maria  at weddings and funerals. Actually I sang ave Maria at my cousins wedding this summer. It’s not the most fun song to sing, I’d rather sing Mariah. 

 

(Us too. I absolutely tear it up when I sing 'Honey' on karaoke)

You’re touring at the moment! Making your way around the US and over to Glasgow too! Over to my neck of the woods! Are you excited?

 

Yes! I love traveling, and I love comedy. So it’ll be great. I’ve only been to Italy and Spain, so it’ll be nice to be in an English speaking country doing comedy!

What can we expect from the tour?

 

Lots of singing and thot pictures. 

If people want to contact you, ogle your IG pictures, or get tickets for your tour, where can they find you online?

 

Go to Matteolane on all social media platforms. And matteolanecomedy.com for upcoming dates! 

 

And finally, whats next for Matteo Lane?

 

After a week out of the gym, probably the gym.
