Thai Rivera, without a doubt is one of the fastest upcoming 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 recent title holder of the World Series of Comedy competition in Vegas this past Septembers, 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 Russel Peters.

“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, The Logo Network’s One Night Stand Up, NUVOtv's Stand up and Deliver, SiTv’s Latino 101 and he has also recently toured throughout Australia, Japan and Greenland for our American troops.
