Week at the Creek: Ryan Schutt
This Week’s Artist:
When Ryan gets the opportunity to talk at a group of strangers with a microphone, he relates to them by drawing from his pathetically shallow reservoir of life experience. Staying comfortably within the bounds of his limited knowledge and interests, his material focuses on things that bother him, getting bothered by things, and the relationship between him and things that are bothersome. It goes without saying that it is clearly everything else that has a problem, not him.
Ryan has performed at a wide range of international comedy festivals, including SF Sketchfest, NXNE, Limestone, Bentzen Ball, Laugh Your Asheville Off, Cape Fear, and the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. He has opened for comics like Dave Attell, Pete Holmes, Wyatt Cenac, Dan Soder, Godfrey, Beth Stelling, Nate Bargatze, Joe List, and Mark Normand at venues across the country. He has also made appearances on WNYC’s “2 Dope Queens,” the Nerdists’s “Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction,” “Gotham Comedy Live” on AXS TV, “Laughs” on Fox Network, “The Alyona Show” on Russia Today, and “The Stream” on Al Jazeera. Born and raised in Washington, DC, Ryan now lives in New York City where he regularly performs standup, sketch, and improv comedy.
