Ryan Reaves was born and raised in Lansing, MI and he is the youngest of four siblings. Growing up with cousins on his father’s side of the family who were constantly teasing, picking and cracking jokes on each other. Watching and listening to comedians like Redd Foxx, Rodney Dangerfield and Eddie Murphy is what helped give him his sense of humor and his deep love for comedy. He caught the ‘Comedy Bug’ after getting up on stage at an open mic as a dare while out with friends one night in 2001 and from there is where his knack for doing stand up started. After doing a couple local shows Ryan packed up and moved to Los Angeles. Putting comedy on hold for a few years, he jumped back into it in 2007 and hit the ground running! Since then he has worked with many, many comedy greats around all the comedy clubs in Southern CA, etc. Some of the comics he has opened for are Luenell, Shang Forbes, Christopher ‘Kid’ Reid & Joey ‘Coco’ Diaz. He has also worked with Melanie Comarcho, Leslie Jones, J. Anthony Brown, Jay Lamont & Honest John and continues to work with many more. You can catch Ryan hosting @The Falcon Inn in Hawthorne FREE EVERY OTHER Monday at 9pm and @Tortilla Cantina in Torrance FREE EVERY THIRD WEDNESDAY @8pm and also performing in shows all over Southern CA and cities near YOU!!!
