My name is Rick, and I've been a professional stand-up comedian since 1997. I moved to Los Angeles from Seattle in 2001 to expand upon my comedy career, and make the Big Time. Success! My very first audition landed a role on "Becker". In 2002, I was the host of MTV's "Suspect: True Crime Stories", and in the intervening years have been performing in clubs throughout the U.S. and Canada. I've had a couple of lead roles in films this year, most notably in the short film, Closing Time. In addition to being a ground-breaking comedian, and a tear-jerking actor, I sing, dance, and play a variety of instruments (including piano, guitar, banjo, ukelele, mandolin, and harmonica).
