MATT RIFE BRINGS COMEDY SHOW TO
THE EVENT CENTER AT RIVERS CASINO PITTSBURGH
PITTSBURGH — March 28, 2023 — Hilarious new internet sensation Matt Rife will be lighting up The Event Center with laughter at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh on Thursday, June 8, at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $39 and are on sale Friday, March 31.
Rife has exploded as one of the fastest growing comedians through his viral
content and remarkable engagement on TikTok where he has currently amassed over 10 million followers and more than 260 million views globally. Rife brings forth his refreshingly genuine presence along with elevated material that is quick witted and vulnerable.
From Columbus, OH, Matt started performing at the age of fifteen opening for comedians such as Dane Cook, Ralphie May, and DeRay Davis. He made his television debut on MTV’s “Wild 'N Out" as the youngest cast member in history for four seasons before moving on to other MTV properties, such as hosting the reboot of “TRL” and appearing on “The Challenge.” Other credits include “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Fresh Off The Boat,” BET’s “North Of The 10,” and most recently NBC’s comedy competition show “Bring The Funny.”
“We are so excited to welcome Matt Rife to our Event Center,” said Shannon Redmond, vice president of marketing at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “I’ve watched quite a few of his videos and he’s hysterical. I know our audience is going to love his show.”
In 2021, Rife self-produced his first one-hour comedy special “Only Fans” which has accumulated more than one million views on YouTube. As one of the hottest comedians in the business, Rife has been selling out at comedy clubs and theaters all across the country, and is gearing up to embark on his biggest tour yet in 2023.
Tickets to see Matt Rife can be purchased inside Rivers Casino or at RiversCasino.com/Pittsburgh.
