Riley Fox is a comedian and writer living in Portland, Oregon.
In 1988, Riley won AMERICA’S FUNNIEST BABY with a gut-busting impression of a fax machine, and he pretty much coasted on that until November 2008, when Riley began performing stand-up in his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. (Thanks, OBAMA.)
In 2013, after five years of telling jokes in comedy clubs, bars, and colleges all across the Southeast, Riley moved to Portland, Oregon to see what racism was like up in the Pacific Northwest. Turns out, it’s about the same, actually.
Riley’s first full-length comedy album UNAMERICAN was released in 2012, and is available on iTunesHERE. A follow-up EP, entitled FURTHER THOUGHTS & PROVOCATIONS, was released in 2013 for free HERE.
His writing has been published in places that no longer exist. His tweets have appeared in New York Magazine, BuzzFeed, Fusion, Cosmopolitan, Paste, Someecards, E! Online, Gothamist, The Daily Dot, Alternet, Revelist, Huffington Post, Yahoo! News, Exclaim!, Mandatory, Mediaite, and, for some reason, Perez Hilton’s blog. He is currently working on his first feature screenplay–a hilarious romp starring Will Smith and sports legend Barry Bonds about a baseball superstar who has trouble scoring with the ladies entitled BATTING A THOUSAND–and in his spare time, Riley enjoys playing drums for the popular rock band RUSH under the pseudonym Neil Peart.
