In general, Ryan Stout loves to explore morally repugnant subject matter with smart and sterile objectivity. His exaggerated honesty, delightful insincerity, and cute self-righteousness sell his wickedly witty material. No matter what the topic, this suit clad comic appeals to everyone’s sense of logic. And to assure his brand of “offensive humor” stays on an intellectual level, he tries to keep swear words out of his act. Oh, he’ll talk about rape and abortion, but it won’t be filthy.
Ryan Stout is the winner of the Boston International Comedy Festival’s Stand-up Comedy Competition (2005). In addition, he was a featured performer at HBO’s The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas (2005) and at HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO (2006). Soon after his festival appearances, he hosted two game show pilots for MTV, I.Q. (2007) and Singled Out (2007). He performed stand-up on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham (2007) and made several appearances on the nationally syndicated radio program The Bob & Tom Show. Stout settled-in to his television career by reviewing, re-capping, and capping-on several of MTV’s popular reality shows. As the host of the network’s “aftershow” series A Shot at Love: The Hangover (2007/2008) and More Amore (2008), he told jokes, performed in short sketches, and interviewed reality show contestants. Establishing himself as a go-to host for any event, the network called on Stout to host television specials, including MTV’s Most Valuable Players (2008) and, the iconic, MTV Spring Break ‘08. Another MTV game show pilot called Pop-a-razzi! (2008) followed, along with a position hosting a series called MTV’s Ranked (2008). In the midst of all his television work he still managed to continue doing stand-up all over the United States and performed at the prestigious Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival (2008) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The following year brought a few more MTV jobs, hosting reunion episodes of reality shows and, as you might’ve guessed, yet another game show pilot. That year also brought appearances on WGN’s television version of the The Bob & Tom Show (2009) and on E! Entertainment’s Chelsea Lately (2009). And, by year’s end, he filmed his very own Comedy Central Presents… half-hour special, which will air in 2010.
