Matthew Foster. Matthew Foster's scripts have been hailed as "snarky," "iconoclastic," "politically feisty," and "pissed off" by the Twin Cities press. In 2000, Mr. Foster worked as a script consultant for the Peabody-nominated public television series Mental Engineering. That year, he founded the Ministry of Cultural Warfare, a Minneapolis-based comedy company whose 2001 and 2002 productions at Minnesota Fringe Festival both ranked in the top ten by attendance (out of 120 and 135 shows, respectively). In his free time, he likes to write sketch comedy while drinking heavily on trains going through the Netherlands.
