Matt In The Press:
Matt Ritter recently traded big law for the big stage. He graduated of the University Pennsylvania Law School and worked as a corporate lawyer at both Kirkland and Ellis and Mayer Brown before leaving the law to pursue comedy.
He is the co-creator of a new television series “Chained to My Ex” which premiered on MSNBC recently to rave reviews. He is currently developing another show that will hopefully be coming to your television screens soon!
His standup has been featured on “Man Up Standup” on the Maverick channel, and he has been a guest commentator on CBS News, Fox News “On the Record”, NBC, MTV.com, ComedyTime TV, and Askmen.com. He recently participated in the Big Sky Comedy Festival, the Ventura Harbor Comedy Festival and the New York Underground Comedy Festival. He has guest hosted Sirius XM “Raw Dog” Comedy and he performs regularly at the Hollywood Improv, the Comedy Store, Gotham Comedy club as well as at colleges, corporate events, casinos, military shows and Jewish organizations across the country. He recently starred in a national Sears commercial and is starring in a new webseries about the law called “The Bottom Rung.” His viral video “Goldfellas” was featured on Comedy.com, Dealbreaker, Fierce Finance, the Wallstreet Journal online and WPIX News.
He is a frequent guest on the “Man Panel” of the pop culture site, Crushable.com. Matt’s first comedy music video “I’m the Kinda Guy” was featured on Comedy.com. He is also a writer for various publications, including Readers Digest, US Weekly (Fashion Police) Bitter Lawyer (an insightful and engaging entertainment site for lawyers) and the Lawyerist (an advice column about being a lawyer/comedian), as well as one of the members of the Gotham Jokewriters staff. Matt is also a member of the PAD Legal Fraternity.
Aside from making fun of the legal profession, Matt frequently focuses his humor on his hotheaded Israeli father, his eccentric mother, and the fact that all of his decisions in life are now based on what works best for his French bulldog.
