Chris Gethard has been seen in The Office, Louie, The Other Guys, Iron Man 3, The Heat, Bored to Death, and in a whole bunch of commercials and College Humor videos. But most importantly, he's the host of The Chris Gethard Show, a weekly live call in fiasco that goes down on New York's public access airwaves (and that began as a monthly stage show at the UCB Theatre in Chelsea). The New York Times said Chris is a "short, unassuming fellow with the sneaky intensity of someone with a chip on his shoulder" and New York Magazine has referred to him as "The Carson of Cable Access".
Chris was named one of Variety's Ten Comics to watch in 2010, was named one of the funniest people of 2012 by Huffington Post, and Flavorwire classified him as one of New York's 50 Up-and-Coming New York Culture Makers to watch in 2013. In 2012, IFC television "adopted" Chris, making him a public face of their network online, on air, and at festivals, and optioned his book A Bad Idea I'm About to Do for a television adaptation.
Named one of Rolling Stone’s five comics to watch, Ryan’s appearances on NBC's Last Comic Standing, Conan, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, and the Showtime special Caroline Rhea and Friends, Ryan is on his way to establishing himself as one of the country's favorite stand-ups.
With immediate comic charisma and a crisp, clean writing style, Ryan is sought after for his ability to perform for a variety of audiences while making each show an individual and unique experience.
With an extensive touring schedule, he often finds himself far from his Idaho roots and currently makes his home in New York City. Much of his trademark humor comes from that unique contrast.
He's become known among industry insiders as the fastest rising star, racking up local and national comedy competition wins and festival appearances. He most recently won the Great American Comedy Festival in Norfolk, Nebraska, which honors the roots of Johnny Carson. He has also won the National MVP award for The Comedy Leagues competition at the Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival. Prior to that, he won Sierra Mist's America's Next Great Comic Search, was a two-time finalist at the Boston Comedy Festival competition, and appeared at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival as an up and coming talent. He's also a regular guest on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom radio show.
