Hey, I'm Ryan Budds! I'm a full-time comedian and writer from the south suburbs of Chicago currently living in LA. My jokes have grabbed attention from WGN, CBS, Time Out Chicago, and United Healthcare. Currently, I'm an Associate Producer on MTV's hit show, Ridiculousness with Rob Dyrdek!

On stage, I'm a newlywed in my 20s who talks about my dad's obsession with malls, my worthless English degree, and over-phallic bachelorette parties, to name a few things. I've opened for many notably funny comics like Dennis Miller, Zach Galafianakis, and The Wayans Brothers. I've performed at many great clubs including The Improv, Zanies, and The Laugh Factory and I frequent college stages like Indiana University and University of Michigan.

In 2014, I appeared in the action thriller Plane vs. Volcano as Pvt. Thatch. Additionally, I've appeared on hit shows like Bones, Rules of Engagement, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development for Netflix, G4's X-Play, How I Met Your Mother (as a roller skating hipster), and New Girl. Find me on IMDB.

Oh, and I was all up in that SyFy masterpiece SHARKNADO playing leg-chomped Beach Victim #1, which got me on the front pages of Entertainment Weekly, The LA Times (next to Brad Pitt), Uproxx, Laughspin, and Good Day Sacramento.

Recently, I optioned a feature length comedy titled Colorful for Nickelodeon star Keke Palmer's production company. I also wrote and starred in a weekly webseries called Between Gigs with award-winning screenwriter Dale Zawada, and I produced, wrote and starred in a full-length comedy pilot with some of Chicago's finest comics/actors called Life Support.

Ryan was great. Not only was he very accomidating with my band setup, the floor space and his financial terms, he and his opening act were extremely funny (which is always a plus). Prior to my event he and I discussed how "blue" he should work (given we have both young and old patrons), and he did a great job dancing that razor's edge. The only downside was he wanted to be paid in nickles. Strange request......
