Comedy Interviews wirth Matt Riggs

I’m watching ‘I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant’ and it makes me wonder…am I?  They seem to make a case in this show that anyone could be pregnant at anytime with no warning or any signs.  Now, I eat Smarties pre-rolled candies and I was told as a kid that those are male birth control by my bus driver, Ray Wilson.  Sure, it may down the line lead to sugar induced diabetes, but you won’t have to run around after those kids, which will be good, because there is a chance with that diabetes that you’re going to lose a foot.  He should know, his daughter only had one foot.  Car accident, not diabetes took his child’s foot, but still, he seemed very confident when he said it.  I will keep you all posted if I give birth.  Enjoy this interview with Tim O’Malley!

O’Malley:  Be careful out there and thank you all for coming.  Also, I’ve worked with many talented people, but Matt Riggs is by far the most energetic, fantastic, wonderful and less smelly of all of them!

He can be seen in shows all over the Midwest and is a cast member of Chicago Underground Comedy. He participated in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Chicago Women’s Funny Festival, The Limestone Comedy Festival 2014 and the 2013 TBS Just for Laughs Chicago. He has a weekly podcast called Bad News/Good Timing on iTunes. When he is not trying to think of things that people might want to read on his bio, he is enjoying a nice podcast or perhaps inventing a new food made with mostly hot dogs.
