In His Own Words: Thai Rivera, the self-proclaimed Absolute Best LGBTQ Comedian in the World, has been shocking, entertaining and educating audiences with his stand up for over 16 years.
Thai honed his politically incorrect style performing in the most unlikely of places, redneck bars and rural America where, through humor, he makes LGBTQ+ relatable. Thai’s stand up has taken him not only all over the country but all over the world, places like Australia, Singapore, Bahrain and several tours throughout China. In 2019, Thai became the first openly gay comedian to ever perform in Mongolia. TV credits include Comedy Central, the Logo Network and All Def Digital. Rivera has also worked with some of the biggest names in the comedy world, such as, Jo Koy, Russell Peters and Gabriel Iglesias to name a few.
