Ryan studied theatre at University of Central Missouri. Prior to that, he was so determined on becoming a comedian that he isolated himself from his classmates during his senior year of high school. Paying attention only to his desire, Ryan kept his focus on his goal and barely on his school's culture. Ryan's story is one of a remarkable journey to faith in Jesus Christ and comedy leading him to be the original co-founder of HaHaMen. Watch Ryan's testimony here.
Ryan's blessed comedy performances also include Chicago stages such as Second City, IO, and Organic Monkey (critically acclaimed comedy troupe, winners of 2012's Improvorama). As an non-believer in Christ, Ryan wrote and directed the feature film, "The Campaigners” starring as Lucas Phillips. Watch on Amazon prime here.
Currently, Ryan resides in Kansas City. Here, he performs with Faith Factory making guest appearances with HaHaMen using his improv musical talents. Ryan also curates HaHaMen's short videos.
