Ryan McMahon is one of the most dynamic Aboriginal/Native American Comedians working in Canada and the United States today. He’s also a graduate of the prestigious Second City Conservatory(Toronto). His show is a loose, fast paced, silly but always honest look at society from the perspective of a “Native dude.” Ryan’s comedy is irreverent and boundry pushing as he focuses his attention on the good, the bad & the ugly of the collision between Indian Country and the mainstream.
His breakout performances on “Welcome To Turtle Island Too – A Celebration of Aboriginal Comedy” (CBC TV/Radio, Corkscrew Media, 2010), and the “Hystereotypes” (CBC TV, Frantic Films, 2011) Gala television taping at the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival in 2011 led to his own one hour standup comedy special “Ryan McMahon – UnReserved” (CBC TV/Radio, Corkscrew Media, taped in June 2012), becoming the FIRST Native Comedian to ever tape a one hour standup comedy special for CBC TV.
In July 2012 Ryan made his debut at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, QC.While at the festival Ryan was named to the “New Faces List” that Just For Laughs releases every year which creates THE Industry List of the “best young up and coming standup comedians on the planet.” A pretty remarkable feat for a kid that grew up in the bush in North Western Ontario.
