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.
