About Kelly

Kelly Ryan started stand up at the age of 17 in NYC. While getting her B.S. in Communications from Texas Christian University, she performed improv for four years and taught the art form for three. From opening for SNL’s Vanessa Bayer and Aidy Bryant, as well as NBC’s Retta and BJ Novak, to doing shows all over the Southwest, Kelly loves to perform for a variety of audiences. Whether it’s a club, a clean set for a college crowd, or trying to get the attention of a dive bar- the goal remains the same: get these people to laugh and forget about their day-to-day stresses. Kelly has performed in venues ranging from LA coffee shops to a Texas Air Force Base. In addition to performing all over Los Angeles, Kelly hosts a weekly mic at The Harp Inn in Costa Mesa. She also hosts Just Talkin’, a YouTube show, with her twin sister, Ali. For bookings, please fill out a form or contact her at
