This is Riley in Queens, New York. I’m originally from Albany, California in the S.F. Bay Area. I like reading, going for walks and relaxing in front of a hot computer.
I played Vacation Jason on TruTV’s The Chris Gethard Show, in my Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre sketch show Vacation Jason’s Island Flavors, and on my comedy rap EP, Coconut Berry Lemon Tree. In 2016, I boarded The Impractical Jokers cruise and stayed in character as Vacation Jason for four straight days.
I’m an accomplished comedy wrestler. I have performed and produced matches New York City’s top two comedic wrestling promotions, UCBW and Xtremely Serious Wrestling. I have wrestled under the names Robot Riley, Clancy Doofus, Dusty Dangle, The X-Meister and Shawn from Michael’s. My best feud was against a yellow beach towel. The towel won two out of three.
I’m a graduate of The Barrow Group professional acting program, directed by Founding Co-Artistic Directors Seth Barrish and Lee Brock and I have trained theatrical clowning with Lincoln Center’s Jean E. Taylor.
I’ve been hired to act and be funny in internet videos for IFC, UCBComedy, CollegeHumor, TheFlama, Comedy Central, Go90 and Curve Cologne.
I write and produce video content for my YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/robotriley . Check out my music video “Halloween Vacation” and the web series Hi, Riley.
