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 alone he was a finalist in three national comedy competitions including Comedy Centralâ€™s Laugh Riots. In 2005 he won Sierra Mist's 'America's Next Great Comic' search. That year also included several spots at the Boston Comedy Festival and a showcase at HBO's prestigious Las Vegas Comedy Festival as an up-and-coming talent to watch.
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 a very 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.
