Ryan started performing in the spring of 2001. Since that time he has quickly become a name to watch and a favorite in top comedy clubs across the country. In 2003 he was chosen as a semi-finalist in The Seattle International Comedy Competition and Comedy Central’s Laugh Riots and as a finalist at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival's Laugh Across America Contest. In 2005 he won Sierra Mist's 'America's Next Great Comic' search, which included a national tour. That year also included several spots at the Boston Comedy Festival and an appearance at HBO's prestigious Las Vegas Comedy Festival as an up and coming talent to watch. He recently taped his first television spot for Comcast's Comedy Spotlight.
His comedy reveals a keen peak into his life with immediate comic charisma. Incorporating a distinguished smirk and a lively delivery with a clever, crisp, and clean writing style, Ryan creates an honest snapshot of his life. He finds humor in the most unlikely places, and whether it be the ludicrous nature of naked cats or the act of turning down a drug dealer politely, he enjoys the retelling immensely. Don't miss him on the most recent season of NBC's Last Comic Standing.
