Guests: Episodes with Matt Rife

Matthew Steven Rife, born on September 10, 1995, in Columbus, Ohio, is a distinguished American comedian and actor. Hailing from North Lewisburg, Ohio, Rife’s fascination with comedy was ignited at age 14 during a high school talent show. He turned professional at 15, just a year later. A challenging early life marked by the loss of his father to suicide and a large blended family didn’t deter his ambitions.

In terms of career milestones, Rife has self-produced noteworthy comedy specials such as “Only Fans” (2021), “Matthew Steven Rife” (2023), and “Walking Red Flag” (2023). His foray into television includes a significant appearance on the comedy series “Bring the Funny,” where he reached the semi-finals. His acting credentials extend to guest roles on popular series like “Wild ‘n Out,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” and “Fresh Off the Boat.” He even dabbled in hosting with the reboot of “Total Request Live” in 2017 and appeared on MTV’s “The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars.”

Beyond comedy and acting, Rife explores paranormal activities and features on the YouTube channel “Overnight.” His career took a significant leap when he signed with Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in December 2022. One of his recent accomplishments includes releasing a self-titled special in April 2023, followed by “Walking Red Flag,” a special aimed at addressing and curbing audience interruptions during his performances.
