‘Matt Rife: Natural Selection’ special coming to Netflix on Nov. 15


Netflix announced that Matt Rife‘s upcoming comedy special, Natural Selection, will premiere on Nov. 15. The streaming service shared the news alongside a teaser that shows the 28-year-old Rife declare that he “can’t stand social media.” Rife is a comedian and TikTok star with more than 17.6 million followers

Netflix’s official synopsis of Natural Selection reads: “From his problem with protection crystals to his beef with social media trolls, comedian Matt Rife holds nothing back in this rollicking stand-up special.” The hour-long special will mark Rife’s first comedy special with Netflix.

Rife spoke with Deadline to share what fans can look forward to seeing in his upcoming comedy special: “The first half of it is so silly and ridiculous and fun, and the second half is some stuff I actually got to pour some thought into, which, if you’ve watched either of my previous specials, I kind of like to end the last of it with something people can think about, and put some thought behind, and give some real perspective on something I genuinely am passionate about, as well as making it funny with a fun story. I’d say it’s my most fun hour yet. I think people are really going to like it. There’s something in there for everybody.”

Rife previously released the self-produced comedy specials Only Fans (2021), Matthew Steven Rife (2023) and Walking Red Flag (2023). As an actor, Rife has appeared on Wild ‘n Out, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Fresh Off the Boat.
