We're recapping the cult classic documentary KING OF KONG with comedian and actor Matt Champagne.

KING OF KONG: A FISTFUL OF QUARTERS is the 2007 documentary that introduced the world to the video game rivalry between Billy Mitchell and everyone else. Directed by Seth Gordon, the film follows a down-on-his-luck family man, Steve Wiebe, who’s only solace from unemployment is the 80s arcade game Donkey Kong. On the path to victory there’s palace intrigue with record keepers, questionable videotape, and twists that unspool a decade later. We cover recent news about Billy MItchell’s world record scores for Donkey Kong and other games finally getting stripped away.

Matt Champagne has performed at the Improv, Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, San Francisco Punchline, and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival. He appears with national headliners like Christopher Titus, Tom Rhodes, and Natasha Leggero. You may have seen Matt on TV shows like "Will and Grace," "Angel," "Monk," and "NCIS."

You can catch him at Stir Crazy Comedy Club in Phoenix, July 26 - 28
