DULUTH, MN. (Northern News Now) - A popular stand-up comedian will be coming to Duluth next year.

Comedian and actor Matt Rife will be stopping in Duluth during his “ProbleMATTic World Tour” next year.

Coming from a small town near Columbus, Ohio, Rife started performing at 15-years-old and then moves to Los Angeles two years later to begin his career in Hollywood.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to live out this lifelong 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 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.”

In addition to stand-up, he made his television debut on MTV’s “Wild ‘N Out” as the youngest cast member in history for four seasons.
