Lounge showroom. DC Improv headlining debut! NBC's Bring the Funny, Wild N Out, TRL on MTV

Spotlight

Another rising star makes his DCI headlining debut this spring. Matt Rife started doing comedy as a teenager in Ohio. Within a few years he found success on the small screen: Matt was the youngest-ever cast member on "Wild N Out," which has been a springboard for a lot of great comedy careers, and he was tapped to host MTV's iconic "TRL." In 2019 he stood out as a contestant on NBC's "Bring the Funny" -- and wowed DC Improv crowds as the opening act for DeRay Davis. Now he's coming back, with top billing in our lounge showroom.
