Ryan Stout

Ryan Stout is a well-crafted and seasoned comedian who has performed all over the world. A regular guest on "Chelsea Lately," Ryan has also appeared on "CONAN," HBO’s "Funny as Hell," Comedy Central’s "Live at Gotham," and his own half-hour special: "Comedy Central Presents… Ryan Stout." His debut comedy album, "Touché," was released by Comedy Central Records and reached #1 on the iTunes comedy charts.  While still in college, Stout was already performing over 300 shows per year when, at age 22, he won the Boston International Comedy Festival’s stand-up comedy competition. He went on to perform at HBO’s The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas, HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, the prestigious Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival in Montreal, and the very hip SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. Within six months of moving to Los Angeles, he booked his first pilot, hosting a game show for MTV. That one job established him as a go-to host for any occasion and over the next few years MTV booked Ryan to host nearly 50 projects, including pilots, specials, and episodes of random television. He even hosted the iconic "MTV Spring Break." Currently, Ryan Stout can be seen on "Fameless," the prank show from David Spade and TruTV, which is airing all new episodes right now. On January 27, 2016, Ryan appeared as a guest on Comedy Central’s game show "@Midnight" where he emerged victorious and earned the crown of Funniest Person On the Internet For the Next 231⁄2 Hours. He was promptly dethroned the next night. His second live stand-up comedy album, "How to Be an Audience," was released in 2017 and his third album, "Man in the Suit," was released a year later.  All three of his albums are currently available from every vendor that distributes audible sounds for money.
