Rick Matthews has quickly earned a reputation within the Buffalo comedy community for having a witty (and sometimes twisted) vision of life that differs from those typically bred from a small town background. He has opened for the Dykes of Hazard Comedy Tour, guest hosted The Doin' Time Comedy Showcase in Buffalo, and has been an MC at The Comedy Club in Rochester for various national acts, including Rich Vos and Jim Florentine. Rick can currently be seen tearing it up at venues all across the northeast with the Rust Belt Comedy Tour,.which he is a co-founding member of.
He was recently part of a feature in a Buffalo News article regarding the DIY comedy scene in Buffalo, NY. Rick is doing his part in keeping the scene alive by co-hosting a weekly open mic at Merge Restaurant, and hosting a monthly showcase at The Blue Wall.
