Tragedy loves comedian Ryan Sickler – and just about every major life disappointment, embarrassment and “D’oh!” moment seems to have befallen this fiercely honest stand-up comic. And let’s hope the hits just keep on coming, because Sickler’s living proof that the old adage is correct: Tragedy plus time really does equals comedy. For every humiliation and awkward conversation about STDs (Girl: “Um … I may have something in the herpes family.”), he finds a dynamite joke (Sickler: “‘In the family’ like a first cousin – or an outdoor cat?”). A touring comic known throughout the country, this fast-rising act has also appeared on The Late Late Show, Tosh.O, The Pete Holmes Show and Comics Unleashed. Now he headlines Sacramento’s Punch Line Comedy Club.
