One of the most requested comedians working today, Richie Byrne, brings a unique mix of talents to the stage. Combining a quick wit and New York sarcasm with the charm of an old-school storyteller, Richie provides a dominating stage presence with one of the highest laugh-per-minute counts in the business. Richie's rants on his family…his job…his weight…his life… as well as his take on pop culture make him incredibly relatable to any audience.
Richie's comedy credits include well-known clubs such as Dangerfield's, Carolines on Broadway and Gotham Comedy Club, Hilarities in Cleveland, The Ice House in Pasadena, and The Borgata in Atlantic City, as well as the Tropicana in Atlantic City and Las Vegas. He also has been seen on Comedy Central, VH1, "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," "Good Day New York" and "Gotham Live" on AXS-TV.
Richie is proud to be the warm-up act for the hit series "The Dr. Oz Show," and also "The Rachael Ray Show," "The Chew," "The Jane Pauley Show," as well as the sitcom "Murphy Brown."
Richie has performed for military bases throughout the U.S. and Europe for the "Comics on Duty" organization and countless charities. He was the first comic to ever perform at The United Nations. His opening line was, "Is anyone here from out of town?" He has also been seen at such historic venues as Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall.
