New York improviser: Richie Moriarty

Richie Moriarty

I’m an actor, writer, and improviser, living in New York City. In July 2016, I performed at Just For Laughs in Montreal as part of "New Faces of Comedy: Characters." My television credits include Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Adam Ruins Everything, The Mysteries of Laura, and The Tick on Amazon. I also co-hosted a show on Comedy Central called Cinema Social Club with Jo Firestone and Seaton Smith. I appear alongside Michael Caine in the Zach Braff directed feature film Going In Style. You can also see me in the Warner Brothers film How To Be Single with Rebel Wilson and Dakota Johnson.

I performed as an actor on Maude Night at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York on the team "Pretty Boys." I’m a graduate of Boston College originally from Rockville, Maryland. From 2006-2010 I was on the mainstage cast at Improv Asylum in Boston’s North End performing sketch and improv six times a week.

Simply Unemployable, the sketch and improv comedy group that I started with Matt Catanzano, launched in the spring of 2012 with our webseries, Employment Through Craigslist (ETC). Simply Unemployable is a Channel Partner at Broadway Video’s YouTube Channel, Above Average. I have produced and starred in two different webseries for Above Average: Portrait STUdio and Congressional Hearings. I also perform with Simply Unemployable Live at The PIT in NYC and at colleges and events around the country. Simply Unemployable sketches have been featured on The A.V. Club, Entertainment Weekly, Buzzfeed, Digg, College Humor, Splitsider, Backstage Magazine, Mashable, and Huffington Post among others.
