Ryan Shores' career in comedy began with the publication of his first book, the dark humored "Lotto Scratchers & Tall Cans" in 2008. The book reached a cult audience, and in the spring of 2009 Ryan began performing his material live. After a summer show at the Comedy Store in La Jolla, San Diego, Ryan was approached by an emerging company representing comics in the southern California area and asked to join on as one of their represented comics. Ryan is currently represented by James Kross (of L.A. Slumlords fame). A regular around the San Diego/ Los Angeles comedy scene, Ryan Shores has performed to hundreds of crowds across the United States from Hollywood to New York City, as well as entertained US troops as part of the Proud Hearts Foundation. Ryan has performed with such national acts as Sarah Silverman, Jim Florentine (Crank Yankers, The Howard Stern Show), and Craig Robinson (The Office, Hot Tub Time Machine). Ryan holds a bachelor's degree in Theatre Performance from San Diego State. Since 2013, he has been featured regularly on Union Tribune’s daily morning news show on the “Comic Strip” segment. In March of 2013, the first episode of “Ryan Shores’ Degenerate Podcast” broke the top ten highest rated podcasts on Reverbnation’s spoken-word Charts within 24 hours of its release. .
