(JUNE 5, 2023 - RICHMOND, VA) Today, wildly popular comedian and actor Matt Rife announced his ProbleMATTic World Tour, produced by Live Nation, with over 100 dates across North America, Europe, and Australia, including a performance at Altria Theater on April 28, 2024. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, June 9, at 10:00AM.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to live out this life long dream! To tour the world, spreading laughter, with some of my best friends, is something I never thought would be possible. I’m so grateful to get this opportunity, and it’s even more fulfilling knowing that it’s all because of the incredible people who enjoy my comedy,” said Matt Rife. “I’ve been working so hard towards this for 12 years and now I’ve surrounded myself with a team who works just as hard and share the same passion! I still can’t believe it.”
“Matt has quickly become one of the fastest-rising comics, creating incredible global demand for tickets,” says Andy Levitt, VP, Live Nation Comedy Touring. “We’re looking forward to working alongside him and helping him connect to his audiences around the world."
In 2021, Rife self-produced and distributed through YouTube his first one-hour comedy special, "Only Fans". This past April, the comedian bet on himself again and self-released his highly anticipated second stand-up special, "Matthew Steven Rife" on YouTube. The special was taped in Austin, TX and is dedicated to his biggest role model, his grandfather Steven who had recently passed. Rife will be taping his third stand-up special this fall in Washington, DC at DAR Constitution Hall.
