NYC Google Glass #DENIED  by Feast !
For the first time ever this place, Feast, in #NYC just asked that I remove +Google Glass because customers have complained of privacy concerns in the past. Never has happened to me before. I left. #throughglass Feast

I Amuse You. Host of Hangout Conversations, Conversations+, & The PLUStainment Show. Comedian. Crashing the Hangout & Taking +names. #rappatag #hangoutsonair #awesomesauce
Welcome to my Google+ Profile! Feel free to call me Matt, Matthew or Rappa! I'm a comedic host interested in entertaining and being creative. I also HuffPost:

Things I Love (or what circles you could put me in!) :
Hangouts On Air
Video Games
H.I.R.L. (Hangout In Real Life)
New York Giants
Random Fun
Television :
The Walking Dead | Breaking Bad | Homeland
Dexter | Boardwalk Empire | Fringe | The Newsroom
Game of Thrones | Curb Your Enthusiasm | Seinfeld
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia | Real Time
Daily Show | Colbert Report | Conan | Letterman
(Recommend Past or Present TV for me to watch!)

Quick Who Am I :
Connected, knowledgeable, affable, quick-witted and generous.  Those traits have made Matthew Rappaport The Ultimate Host.  He is one of a few people of note who hosts Hangouts On Air on Google+/YouTube. Rappaport is known for his marathon shows with the most interesting people in the world.  He's done time on many a film and TV set, enough to get his SAG card. Which is convenient because he has a BFA in Musical Theater/Theater and studied in Oxford. Rappaport directed one feature, along with major involvement in shorts and web series.  The man acts for fun but makes a living as a host and social media crackerjack.  He can explain it to you and make it work for you, not against you. A native New Yorker, he travels to wherever he is needed, all around from Nashville to Vegas  & beyond!

I interview & find out about awesome people in Google+ Hangouts to bring you fun, funny, stories and +more! 

Most Recent Shows:

Watch Recent Episodes & Hangouts On Air:


In September 2011, after hanging out all summer, I started Hangout Conversations to bring Amazing Google Plussers to the rest of the world that I met and my own style of humor. After each show, I have the audience join us live on Conversations+.

Also, I made a mime and a therapist love story called  Yoko/Schmono that was shown at The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival.    

H.I.R.L. - #nychirl
In February 2012, I planned and held the 1st ever H.I.R.L. (Hangout In Real Life) Weekend in New York City. 100+ People traveled from all over the world to meet for the 1st time after many hours & laughs together in hangouts. People came from Austria, Vancouver, California, Texas and more to really high five & naturally break the hangout wall to sit on the same couch together! As part of the weekend I put together LIVE+ which was a concert featuring Singer/Songwriters +Heather Fay, 
+Ryan Van Sickle, +Daria Musk & +Ram Rich and we had a beautiful #WTCPhotowalk across the 
Brooklyn Bridge lead by +Daniel Enloe, A Super H.I.R.L. (Super Bowl) Party & amazing life changing memories!

Thusday February 2 - Monday, February 6, 2012
