Richard Ryder / Standup comics, comedians and comedy writers from the finest talent roster in Canada
Fast thinking, quick witted and gayer than a picnic basket bought with a three dollar bill, Richard Ryder takes the stage with a refreshing energy and “no holds barred” attitude that audiences welcome again and again. No topic is too taboo for this Toronto native whose comedy is fresh, fast, funny and a constant source of embarrassment to his family. Which is exactly how it should be.
No stranger to TV, Richard's Comedy Now on The Comedy Network is one of the network’s most popularly replayed episodes to date. He’s also the host of the international hit TV series Knock Knock Ghost which can be seen on OUTtvGo in Canada.
Richard's brilliantly eclectic humour has also been featured on NBC's Last Comic Standing, CBC Radio 1's Accent On Toronto, Q107 where he won their Funniest Person With A Day Job. As if this weren't enough, Richard can also be seen live, working the comedy circuit throughout Canada and the States.
All kidding aside, Richard must be experienced live. He's a hoot!
