A unique slice of life from one of New York’s Funniest Comedians

Performing nightly in New York and sending laughs to clubs and colleges across the country, Rob Ryan is a delight. Rob has worked alongside Jim Gaffigan, Ted Alexandro, Greer Barnes and Andrew Kennedy. He was recently voted, “The Funniest Person on Long Island” and has written for several sketch comedy groups both in New York and L.A.

“Rob’s performance was awesome. The college crowd really liked the show, and Rob went out of his way to make the show great. He is a great find, and I think he’s just a few years away from being famous.”

-Eric Cunningham, Rensellaer Polytech

“Rob provided an exciting high energy show and was able to relate his material to the college students. He did a great job with engaging his audience. It was clear by their laughter that everyone who attended enjoyed the show. I would highly recommend Rob Ryan to anyone who is looking for an entertainer to provide a hilarious comedy show and edge of your seat entertainment.”

Rob Ryan

Rob Ryan, like many comedy greats, hails from Long Island and has taken New York City by storm. After graduating valedictorian from Stony Brook University Rob immediately threw out his degree and relentlessly pursued stand-up comedy.

He is a presence in the New York scene performing nightly at the Broadway and New York Comedy Clubs, The Comic Strip, Gotham and others.  He was also recently voted the‘Funniest Person on Long Island’.

Rob is no stranger to writing having been a contributing writer for a number of sketch comedy groups in New York and L.A. Rob has recently teamed up with ‘The Reel Public’, an on-line sketch comedy group, and has written several on-line viral video hits for them. His work has been described as “witty” and “almost genius” by the DC Shorts Film Festival.

Rob Ryan’s style is a perfect blend of clean, relatable observational humor wrapped in an energetic delivery. Audiences love that Rob not only shares the thoughts parading through his mind but he shows them, with vivid characters and spot on delivery. Rob’s intelligent witticisms combined with his infectious story telling make his shows not only entertaining but unforgettable. To tell you any more though would be giving it away.
