Matthew Joseph "Matt" Hargreaves (born August 15th, 1989), known as Matt Lobster on YouTube, was Edd Gould's best friend in real life. He serves as the voice of Matt, and is the only remaining original cast member following the departure of Thomas Ridgewell.

History with Eddsworld

Matt is a voice actor and one of the writers for Eddsworld. He also drew the in-between frames for a few of the episodes, most notably Zanta Claws III. He has his own YouTube channel[1]. As of 2017, he is now one of the comic illustrators, his first known comic being Comic 201: Junk Sale Pt. 1.

After Tom's Departure

After Tom stepped down as showrunner in March 2016, he told fans that Matt, as well as Edd's family, may take over. Edd's mother Sue Gould confirmed that she would be continuing the show.[2] Matt confirmed he would be up for voice acting [3] and said he was not done with the show, "not by a long shot."[4]

On March 16th, 2016, after Part 2 of The End was released, Matt tweeted "Today a chapter of @Eddsworld will end and new one will begin, we're not sure where the future will take us but I hope you'll join us."[5]

Starting from January 2017, Matt became the primary illustrator and writer of the Eddsworld comics.
