Matt Ritter, our event host and MC, really set the pace for the night and was a great match for us…attorney turned comedian with a big heart!

He brought his jokes and made us laugh – understanding this was a fundraising event, he gave of his time and talents to entertain our guests at no cost to us and for that we are grateful!

Aurora Colindres - Director of Development, WESTERN CENTERON LAW & POVERTY

Matt designed and wrote a comedy routine for our annual conference that was hysterical, witty, professional, fun, and memorable! His routine was customized for our industry, his approach was extremely engaging, and his delivery was very funny. We laughed the whole way through. He got rave reviews from the audience and many people approached him afterwards to get his contact information for future events. I would recommend him highly – he did an outstanding job!

Stephanie Ankus, National Association of Legal Search Consultants

When Matt performed at my school, he put on a fantastic show that was enjoyed by law students, professors, and even those not involved with law. Afterwards, he hung out with students and answered questions about life in and beyond law school. Everyone had such a great time, we’re hoping to do it again this year!

Brandyn Butler, Ohio Northern Law School, PAD Regional Chair

We have been fortunate to have Matt perform for our students, faculty, and administrators for several years running now and each show has been better than the last. Matt excels at engaging with his audience; his show never feels scripted as he seamlessly blends his "routine" with off-the-cuff jokes and "color commentary." Matt is a consummate professional, a genuinely funny guy, and and I can't recommend him enough.

You don't have to be a lawyer or even a law student to pee-in-your-pants laugh at Matt Ritter and the Comedians-at-Law Tour.
