If the adage is true — that tragedy plus time equals comedy — then Ryan Sickler has paid his dues on the left side of the equation. Born in Baltimore, Ryan lost his father when he was 16. After that, he bounced from one relative to another. And while his early years might have seemed rocky, that tumultuous childhood gave him both fodder for material and armor against the relentless onslaught that is life as a standup comic.
His television appearances include The Pete HolmesShow, Comedy Central’s Tosh.O, Live At Gotham, Cutman and The Late Late Show.
Beyond standup, Ryan Sickler is an engaging storyteller. You can catch him every Tuesday (Toozdee) on his podcast, The CrabFeast. Inspired by his hometown, the show celebrates the things Ryan loves most — storytelling, family, friends and laughter.
Jason Rogers of Standup Guy Productions and Melanie Bega of Outsourced Productions presents American Me Comedy!
Jason's uniquely Yankee American upbringing as an adopted Korean kid in Mr. Roger's white picket fence neighborhood of New Boston, New Hampshire gave him a distinctive "slant" on life, now put to hilarious use in his stand-up routines. The self-proclaimed "Caucasian Asian" put it this way in his "Go pak ya ca" wicked thick New England accent, "I created the show to incorporate all kinds of comedians. I wanted to stay away from an all Asian, white, black, purple, blue themed show." American Me Comedy, will be an evening of the best stand up comedy featuring today's hottest working comics from all walks of life - race, color, religion, sexual orientation - sharing their unique and hilarious perspectives on life experiences. Thank you.
