Ryan Budds is a south suburban Chicago native who brings a package of wit, energy, and spontaneity on stage. Crafted jokes, stemming from life in his 20s, pull audiences in and keep them laughing at clubs and colleges all over the country.
Ryan busted into comedy by winning the "Open for Dennis Miller" comedy contest sponsored by The Loop 97.9 in Chicago. He performs frequently at the World Famous Improv in Chicago and has worked with many noteable comedians including Zach Galifianakis, Christopher Titus, Greg Behrendt, and Bobcat Goldthwait, just to name a few.
Most recently, Ryan was featured on the 'Around Town' segment on WGN morning news after becoming a finalist in 'Chicago's Next Big Comic' contest hosted by Zanies Comedy Club. He was also featured in Time Out Chicago's Joke of the Week. His CD "No Wrong Way" is available now.
