Ryan: Watchmojo you’re on watchmojo.com, you’ll notice there’s advertising all around you clock on it please and help support our sponsors. Veronica: It maybe surprising that this comedian wasn’t always the stud you know today. Ryan: [Singing] Veronica: Hi I’m Veronica with watchmojo.com and today we’re chatting with Ryan Belleville. Ryan: Hello Veronica. Veronica: So you began on the stage of the Loose Moose Theater, what was about at that such a young age you’re attracted to stand up comedy? Ryan: I gravitated towards that I notice that I had a natural ability but more so it was something I wanted to be good at. Its kind of a little comedy communist, commune group because you don’t pay any money to take classes, you need to show up and then as long as you pop popcorn or rip tickets you can get free classes and impossibly be part of the show, some like yeah I want to be part of that. I was kind of geeky and I had like little mullet and I wasn’t coolest kid, I know its shocking as we pointed out I am a sexual panther now. Sweet sexual panther. Veronica: How was your act of evolved as you matured? Ryan: I’m 30 now which I know that’s good for my career or bad for my career to say that because I got this nice youthful look. Although I’ve learned at 30 there’s a very fine line between cute little hobbit and fat alcoholic goblin and so I’m brushing up against that. It weird\rd saying that your comedy matures because comedy apparently immature. Hello I have a mustache? But the big thing is that your topic changes because life changes a little bit. When you’re talking to college kids they’re not so interested in money or finances. The thing when you’re 30, you’re trying to be more concerned about credit card debt or mortgages. Veronica: Now as we kind of saw already in this interview you have a tendency to go of topic, you can also do that on stage sometimes, so that mean that every show is a little bit different? Ryan: I also like clothes, this is what’s in my arms. Don’t be prepared and it’s a tribute to what I Started from in improvisation. what a reminder to be spontaneous and if you’re walking to any situation with specific ideas how do you think the situation is going to go you close your self off to all of the other things that could happen. Veronica: Now I find that people who work off the cup are the best working with audience how do you deal with hecklers, what’s your best experience or worst experience? Ryan: It’s weird, if you’re very interactive the crowd wants to talk to you sometimes and generally I don’t mind that as long as people respect that we’re here to perform and we have a show and maybe we actually have a point what we’re trying to say like we’re trying to get some where. I always amazed that people want to egg a comedian because we make our living with our mouths and through verbal acuity it’s kind of like going out to Chuck Liddell and going hey what’s up you want to fight? Why you would do that? He’s going to head butt you to death, he’s a ninja. Veronica: You played a dog that turns into a human, did you have to research that after all? Ryan: They were nice to pay for me to bring my dog with me to Regina, for this summer, jealous. Its amazing how in life get that when you’re almost naked wearing a dog collar and walking around and drinking out of the toilet. You’re like I think this is I’m in the zone. That was my assistance king right there, I was thinking I have a toilet and you know this made it Ryan. Yeah, next stop Broadway. Veronica: Well thank you very much, great having you here. Ryan: That was my pleasure and thanks you for taking some time out your day surfing to watch mojo.
