Anthony was named one of Variety's 10 Comics to Watch in 2008 and one of Comedy Central's Hot Comics in 2009. In 2010, Anthony released his critically acclaimed debut comedy album, SHAKESPEARE, through Comedy Central Records.

If the adage is true — that tragedy plus time equals comedy — then Ryan Sickler has paid his dues on the left side of the equation. Born in Baltimore, Ryan lost his father when he was 16. After that, he bounced from one relative to another. And while his early years might have seemed rocky, that tumultuous childhood gave him both fodder for material and armor against the relentless onslaught that is life as a standup comic.
His television appearances include TBS’s The Pete Holmes Show, Comedy Central’s Tosh.O, Live At Gotham and Cutman and CBS’s The Late Late Show. Ryan is also an informed sports fan and appeared as a regular on Fox Sports.
Beyond standup, Ryan Sickler is an engaging storyteller. You can catch him every Tuesday on his podcast, The CrabFeast. Inspired by his hometown, the show celebrates the things Ryan loves most — storytelling, family, friends and comedy.

He also co-wrote and starred in the IFC Channel showDo Whatever, as well as a series of national commercials including: Taco Bell, Honda and Miller Light. He was named a "New Face" and "Best of the Fest" performer at the 2011 Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Fest as well as being invited to the New York, Boston, and Underground Comedy Festivals.
