This was the worst comedian that I have seen at The Improv. We love going to The Improv and have never had a bad experience until now. All 3 comedians were terrible! It almost makes me not want to go back. It was such a waste of a Saturday night.
In general, Ryan Stout loves to explore morally repugnant subject matter with smart and sterile objectivity. His exaggerated honesty, delightful insincerity and cute self-righteousness sell his wickedly witty material. No matter what the topic, this suit clad comic appeals to everyone’s sense of logic. And to assure his brand of “offensive humor” stays on an intellectual level, he tries to keep swear words out of his act. Oh, he’ll talk about genocide and abortion, but it won’t be filthy.
While still in college, Ryan was already performing over 300 shows per year when he won the Boston International Comedy Festival’s stand-up comedy competition. Since then, he has appeared at TBS’sThe Comedy Festival in Las Vegas, HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and the prestigious Just for Laughs International Comedy Festival in Montreal, Canada.
After making his television debut on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” he hosted numerous shows and specials for MTV, including “MTV’s Spring Break,” a snarky pop culture clip show called “MTV’s Ranked” and the reunion episodes for several of America’s favorite reality shows. (He also hosted five — yeah, FIVE — different game shows for MTV, none of which ever made the air.) In addition, he has become an increasingly regular guest on E!‘s “Chelsea Lately” and WGN’s “The Bob & Tom Show,” and stars in his own “Comedy Central Presents” half-hour stand-up special.
