The Midwest Queer Comedy Festival is excited to announce Thai Rivera as one of our headliners.
Thai Rivera is without a doubt one of the strongest comics in the game today. Shocking and
winning over even the most unexpected of audiences, this openly gay comic offers nothing but
the most brutally honest & oftentimes politically incorrect thoughts on everything from the
homeless to AIDS. The 2013 title holder of the World Series of Comedy competition in Vegas,
Thai is best recognized for his appearance on Comedy Central’s “Stand Up Revolution” on
which Gabriel Iglesias raves “...he is amazing... put your seatbelts on its about to get crazy!...”.
Thai’s brilliant stage talents have been recognized by some of the best in the business. In
addition to “Stand Up Revolution” he has also toured alongside Gabriel Iglesias, Jo Koy, and
“There’s no question this kid is going places...” Dave Tribble – Entertainment Solutions (Seattle)
“To Thai, political correctness is like wearing a coat in the summer. It’s unnecessary. If you
brought yours, just check it at the door because you won’t need it during his show.You may not
want it afterwards either,” First Order Historians.
You may have also seen Thai on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, All Def Digital’s Roast of
America which aired on 2016 election night, the 2017 All Def Digital Movie Awards, The Logo
Network’s One Night Stand Up, NUVOtv's Stand up and Deliver, SiTv’s Latino 101 and he has
also toured throughout Australia, Japan and Greenland for our American troops. Not to mention,
his most recent 7 city tour where he entertained audiences throughout China.
