Ryan’s future is bright. Named one of Rolling Stone’s Five Comics to Watch and with standout appearances on Conan, NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, and the Showtime special Caroline Rhea and Friends, he’s on his way to establishing himself as one of the nation’s favorite stand-ups. With immediate comic charisma and a crisp, clean writing style, Ryan is sought after for his ability to perform for a variety of audiences while making each show unique and memorable.
He’s become a favorite among industry insiders by racking up national competition wins and festival appearances. He’s a winner of The Great American Comedy Festival and Sierra Mist’s America’s Next Great Comic Search. At the Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival he was named a winner and MVP of The Comedy Leagues competition. He also appeared on the Just For Laughs televised gala special hosted by Jim Henson’s Muppets.
His extensive touring schedule often finds him far from his Idaho roots and he currently makes his home in New York City. The comedic contrast always finds a way into his act.
