Ryan Hynek

Ryan Hynek

Hong Kong

Ryan Hynek has been living in Hong Kong for nearly ten years, but he’ll be hard-pressed to call anywhere but Chicago, Illinois his home. He’s the first to admit that his job as an English teacher at a local secondary school provides him with most of his comedic inspiration, along with a captive, non-voluntary, audience of students to test his material.

Before coming to HK, Ryan was a television news producer for CBS News in Missouri. But even though his newscasts were often unintentionally hysterical, he feels that teaching and comedy are keeping him far happier.

Since starting with TakeOut Comedy shortly after the club opened in 2007, Ryan has finished as a finalist in the Hong Kong International Comedy Competition. He’s had the privilege to open for top international comedians, including: Paul Ogata, Amy Anderson, Tom Cotter, Shecky Wong, and others. He’s also been stirring it up at comedy venues around HK, Macau, The Philippines, Indonesia, and Chicago, USA.

You can catch Ryan at TakeOut Comedy most weekends in Hong Kong.
