This comes after Rife tweeted on his X account Wednesday he would have to reschedule his sold-out shows in Indiana due to a "last minute medical emergency."

"I've been doing 40+ shows a month for a year and half and never had to do something like this, I'm so so sorry, I hope you understand and I love you so much," the tweet read.

The "Matt Rife: ProbleMATTic World Tour" shows were supposed to be held at the Indiana University Auditorium. The venue also confirmed the cancellations.

The comedian later made a follow up post to his original tweet, saying "refunds are being issued."

Rife was scheduled to perform four comedy shows at the Chicago Theatre Thursday through Sunday, according to the theatre's website.

The comedy shows at the Chicago Theatre will now be scheduled for December 26-29.
