One of the most requested comedians working today, Richie's talents are a unique mix. Combine the sharpness of the New York observationalist with the charm of an old-school storyteller--add a dominating stage presence with one of the highest laugh-per-minute counts in the business & you have only scratched the surface of this one-of-a-kind performer.
A classic complainer, Richie's rants on family, diets, popular music are the type of humor we all have experienced & can relate to. But, his most hard-hitting material is usually reserved for Richiehimself. His stories about being on the set of shows like "Sex & the City" & "The Sopranos"... going to the doctor... or even just trying to drive home from the show will have you roaring with laughter.
His comedy credits include such well-known clubs as Dangerfield's, Carolines and Gotham Comedy Club in Manhattan. As well as many clubs around the country including Hilarities in Cleveland & The Ice House in Pasadena. Richie has had comedy appearances on Comedy Central, VH1, "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" & "The Morning Show with Mike & Juliet".
Currently, Richie Byrne is proud to be the warm-up act for the hit series, "The Dr. Oz Show".
Not only a popular comedian, Richie is also an accomplished actor & singer, with a long resume of theatrical credits (music & legit) as well as television. Besides his stints on HBO's "Sex" & "Sopranos" he has also been on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" & "Conviction" on NBC. He can also be seen in the feature film "Goodbye Baby". Written & directed by Dan Schecter, the film is about a young girl who enters the world of Stand-Up. Besides performing material in the movie & playing a part, Richie was also a consultant on the set & helped to write original material for the lead character.
Richie is also very proud to be a main performer for the "Comedy Cures" organization. Founded by Saranne Rothberg, "Comedy Cures" is a non-profit organization that uses comedy as a therapeutic tool. But, Richie's biggest accomplishment in show business is "The Richie Byrne Show". Written by some of the top comics in NY & performed by some of the most talented actors, singers & musicians, "The Richie Byrne Show" is an "off the wall", throwback to the old days of "Variety".
Richie Byrne is a multi-talented, uniquely funny comedian & performer that you don't dare miss!!!
