Widely regarded as one of Canada’s top stand-up comedians, Calgary native Ryan Belleville began his comedy career training at the Loose Moose Theatre. By 17 he was performing comedy professionally, and was the youngest person to ever record their own CTV Comedy Now special. He is also a winner of both Canadian Comedy Awards and the Phil Hartman Award for his stand-up.
He just finished making his 9th appearance at Montreal’s Just For Laughs festival, where he is a crowd favourite, and has made multiple appearances on CBC’s Halifax Comedy Festival, The Winnipeg Comedy Festival and The Debaters. South of the border he has been seen on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, CBS’s The Late, Late Show and MTV’s Busted.
A respected comedic actor, he was a series regular on the Fox sitcom Life On A Stick, and on CW’s The LA Complex. He was the star and co-creator of the cult show Almost Heroes, now available on Hulu. He also starred in the feature films National Lampoon’s Going The Distance, Disney’s Stuck In The Suburbs, Step Dogs, and the award-winning family film Finn On The Fly.
Most recently he was the star of the CTV sitcom Satisfaction and hosts one of the most popular comedy podcasts in Canada, The Flying Bellevilles Podcast.
