Matt Rife is coming to the Paramount Theatre in Cedar Rapids on November 3.

Fans of the TV show Wild N Out have known about Matt for some time as he made regular appearances on the hit MTV show, starring Nick Cannon. In the past year, Matt has become arguably the fastest-growing comedian in the world with his viral content on social media.

At the time of writing, Matt currently has 14.1 million followers on TikTok, 236.6 million likes, and his content has been viewed more than 2 billion times, according to Crevents Live.

One of the reasons Matt has sky-rocketed in popularity is due to his "crowd work" videos. Fans have flocked to watch Matt work off the cuff and interact with the crowd, making up jokes and punchlines as he goes.

In 2021, Matt self-produced and self-distributed his very first one-hour comedy special, called OnlyFans, which he released on YouTube. This past April, he released another special on YouTube, called Matthew Steven Rife. He will be taping his third special sometime this fall.

If you're interested in going to his show this November, grab your tickets sooner rather than later.
