LOST THE WILL TO LAUGH? TWO WORDS: MATT RIFE

Saw Matt Rife perform last night at The Funny Bone in the Greater Cincinnati Area for the first time ever and I can't remember when the last time was that I laughed that hard!!!! The last four years have been tough on everyone so take the time & money to treat yourself to a night of laughter...you won't be disappointed! Matt's popularity is only growing so get your tickets now so you can say you too are now one of his biggest fans!!!

LEVI WAS IN THE BUILDING

The wife, a couple of her girls and I saw Matt and his boys Saturday night at Ocean Casino Resort. Matt really knows how to work the crowd. His interaction with his 85 year old fan from Florida was flawless. My wife's friend was looking for Levi for the rest of the night (BBC). You had to be at the 10 o'clock show to get the joke. Absolutely brilliant. This kid is going places.

WHY SO MUCH HATE?

As a fellow Ohioan & genuine lover of his comedy, I felt slightly embarrassed as a woman. This sweet, genuine, and funny guy had a bit too many hecklers in the audience too early on in the show. That is not his fault whatsoever. I believe he did try his best to handle it respectfully. However, it got so bad that he told one woman to “jump off the balcony”.. just to get people to stop (women). People WERE very disrespectful in the crowd. I am not a performer, so how the hell would I know how to handle that… i wouldn’t.. no good person would.. so I felt for him in that moment. Yet, i was in the front row and could feel his angry frustration, and it was not coming from a funny place. Again, people are rude, and he is human just like the rest of us. SO MORAL OF THE STORY IS STOP HECKLING FOR HIM TO DO CROWD WORK. IT IS HIS SHOW…. And he will do it when he wants to. Please be more respectful and aware when trying to show your love. Great show. Great comedian. Great guy. And at the end of it all, who wouldn’t love him? Just stop shouting mid-show… until he asks… hahaha

HE WAS FUNNY BUT. . .

I have to admit, he is a very funny guy. However, the 7:00pm show started late, the opener's set was longer than Matt Rife, who was only on for 45 minutes. We spent a lot of money on tickets to see Matt Rife, not the opener. Don't know why he couldn't do his complete set and either start the 10:00pm show late, as well, or cut the opener's set if there were strict end times for the 10:00pm show.

JUST NOT FUNNY

I guess I was wanting more.. He's really not worth 300 a ticket. The crowd interaction was a little over the top..

MATT RIFE AT OFF THE HOOK IN NAPLES FL

Matt was funny, but not near as funny or engaging as I have seen in his many video clips. Was very excited to see him and have seen some really hilarious comedians over the years. I was a little disappointed after being so excited. Maybe he just wasn’t into it that night? He was late getting out on stage and his openers weren't that funny either.

JUST NOT FUNNY

His crowd banter is not that clever. He's simply not funny. He's thirst trapping to make up for it. It was a dull show for 300$

DPAC DURHAM

The set was not good. The first 2 acts were cringe and very hard to understand them at times. Then Matt’s was not really funny at all, I was very surprised. Barely any crowd interactions and his jokes were subpar.. we ended up leaving during his set. Definitely needs to work on his material more, he has a lot of potential. Possibly his smaller crowd interactions are better?

DISAPPOINTED

I have been looking forward to this show for months but was disappointed. Not only were tickets extremely expensive but the opening acts (2) were not that funny, difficult to understand and only made my chuckle once or twice. When Matt came out, his energy was good but like the opening acts, I only chuckled a couple of times. Some crowd interaction was good and that could have been the warning at the beginning that anyone being loud, heckling or using their phones would be escorted out. Lots of jokes re: drugs which seemed to go on a little too long - much like a Family Guy bit when it goes on, and on and on. Ultimately, disappointed we went. 4 tickets were over $ 1 100.00. I should have stayed home and watched some of his bits on Youtube.

PROBLEMATTIC WORLD TOUR

Very disappointing! Went to the early Thursday show and aside from starting late, the openning acts were far from warm up but they were on stage longer than Matt himself. They sparked a little heckle at best. Matts routing was unfortuneatly not funny. One skit he just dragged on for way to long (with no laughter). His audience interaction wasnt like his video clips .. maybe an off night for him. Bottom line the show was not worth the 100 dollar plus ticket price. Would have been a better evening ordering a pizza and watching his clips online ....
