Hometown hero Ryan Dalton makes his long-awaited return to Cleveland for the first time since abandoning the Rust Belt for the sunshine & misery of Los Angeles.
Who ever said people with A.D.D. should be medicated? Ryan can’t remember. But whoever said it was wrong! No meds required. Just give him a stage, a mic and you’ve got a comic with an erratic style and constantly fresh material.
Ryan Dalton is a homegrown Cleveland favorite. Ryan attended the prestigious Kent State University. After college, Ryan went on to hold part-time jobs in such world-renowned trades as food service, retail, and coffee distribution. Finally, Ryan sunk his teeth into the most honest profession in the world, car sales. This dream occupation was not enough for him. Ryan hungered for the taste of stand-up comedy, and on a dare, took the stage in Nanuet, NY in 1998. This experience started a hunger for the constant approval from crowds of complete strangers. His thirst would never be quenched!
Ryan soon discovered the entertainment industry where a basic lack of knowledge on any subject is not only necessary, but also embraced. He uses stand-up as a device in which he pokes fun at controversy and the “everyday personal injustices” that are dealt with by the common man, sorry, person, whatever!
Ryan is a comedian that wants everyone to just relax. His lovable sarcasm and smart, conversational style makes for a broadly appealing show.
Ryan’s comedy has led him to regular appearances in the country’s best comedy clubs. He is a regular on the nationally syndicated, “Bob and Tom Radio Show” and his 1st comedy album, “You Were Funny Too,” is on rotation on Sirius XM’s “RawDog” comedy channel. Ryan made his television debut on the third season of Comedy Central’s “LIVE AT GOTHAM.”
In 2011, Ryan made his first USO tour of Qatar and Afghanistan. He also wrote for Comedy Central’s “Roast of Charlie Sheen,” took the grand prize at the 2011 World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas and finished as a finalist in the 2011 Boston Comedy Festival.
This year, Ryan finished as a finalist in the 2012 Laughing Skull Festival and was chosen to participate in the 2012 Great American Comedy Festival. Ryan also performed in the “New Faces / Unrepped” showcase at the 2012 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Most recently, Ryan made his television acting debut on TBS’s “Sullivan and Son.”
