Matthew McMahan, assistant director in the Center for Comedic Arts, is the May Award of Excellence winner. He started at Emerson as term faculty in 2016 to teach the history of comedy, improv, and sketch. In 2018, he shifted to his role in the Center for Comedic Arts. He said of the award, “It is an honor and exceedingly well-timed! I am in my last summer in this role. I am transitioning to a full-time faculty position in Performing Arts in August. So, to receive this award now is incredibly meaningful for me. I consider it a warm recognition of the work we’ve done at the Center for Comedic Arts over the past few years. We are a small but energetic team, and I am routinely amazed by how much we accomplish. I am truly going to miss working with my colleagues in this capacity, and receiving this award makes me feel that even more acutely.”
