Comedy: Ryan Singer

By P.F. Wilson · April 3rd, 2012 · CityBeat Recommends
“We’re all going to go to a place called Comedy Wondertown,” says Ryan Singer of his upcoming set of dates at Go Bananas. “And nothing bad ever happens in Comedy Wondertown.” The Dayton native, now living in Los Angeles, returns home to record a new CD at the club this week. He’s still as silly as ever, but he also has a new perspective on life. “I’ve come into this period of life where I’m realizing how lucky I am to have been born in this age,” he says.

“I don’t know how to do anything. I have no practical skill set. If everything disappeared I couldn’t rebuild it.” In a post-apocalyptic world it would seem that comics have little value. “A doctor, or a teacher, or an engineer; they can be funny sometimes,” explains Singer. “But (a comedian) can’t be a doctor sometimes. They say laughter is the best medicine, but I don’t think anybody wants to put that to the test in a serious situation.” Go Bananas, Montgomery. Through Sunday, April 8. $8-$12. 513-984-9288, gobananascomedy.com.
