For the last seven years, Ryan has pursued writing, stand-up comedy and sketch opportunities throughout New York City. In March 2016, he founded the sketch troupe, Clip Show, a group made up of stand-up comics and improvisers. He directs and produces each performance and collaborates with other writers on crafting a monthly show at the Creek and the Cave in Long Island City. Clip Show has opened for the NYC Sketchfest and has performed at the Philly Sketchfest and Montreal Sketchfest. In October 2016, ‘Mister Softee Jingle With Lyrics’, a digital comedy short he wrote and starred in, was featured on The Huffington Post. This video, along with another short that Ryan wrote and directed, ‘Doo Wop to the Future,’ was showcased at the Philly Sketchfest Film Festival in April 2017. For the last year and a half, Ryan has also been running a monthly show, Stand-Ups Improvise TED Talks at Q.E.D; a comedy show that allows local comics to present fictional TED talk seminars based on power point slides he develops.
