Jason Rash Ryder

Jason  Rash  Ryder  is  one  of  the  legendary  comedians who  have  dominated  and  shaped  the  Australian  comic landscape. He has won international acclaim because of his sidesplitting performances in prestigious events such as the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. Nominated twice for the MO Comic of the Year Award, he has spread his rib-tickling tentacles to the world of TV, radio and film, and has been a spectacle to watch wherever he has gone. Ryder rides a wave of spontaneous laughter as he goes around Australia on his frequent tours. Contact us to learn more about Jason Rash Ryder’s upcoming appearances and if he can be available for your event.

Jason  is  a  class  act  as  a  standup  comedian  and  as  an  MC.  He  is  one  of  the most  popular  comics  and MC  for corporate events. He proactively coordinates with his clients to sharpen his ammo for the unique audience that would be attending the show, a quality that trumps him over many other corporate comedians. A standup artist right down to his bones, this husky performer will not disappopint your or your audience. Never!


The very mention of Ryder’s name brings smiles to the faces of those who have attended one or more of his performances.  Armed  with  his  signature  lunatic  yet likeable  expression,  he  comes  to  the  stage  wrapped in  a fireball of energy and starts shooting punch-line after punch-line of his patent Aussie humor. Casual, cool and utterly hilarious, he punctuates his delivery with brief pauses, which prepare his audience for yet another bout of giggles.  Very few  standup  comedians  are  capable  of creating  uncontrollable laughter  with  each  line  that  they speak, and Ryder is one of them.

He’s one of those people who have comedy hard-coded into their genetics. He doesn’t sound artificial or forced for even an instant. His relaxed and punctuated delivery sets his audience at ease and keeps them craving for more and more. He is never obscene or unlikeable even when he’s using expletives or sexism to create laughter. The best thing about Ryder is his unique ability to carve his humor to his audience’s needs. He will leave you with a cramped belly and eyes full of tears, yet wanting to see him again.


If you haven’t seen Jason Rash Ryder perform at a TV show or live event, you must not be watching any comedy. This  audacious  devil  has  been  all  over  the  comedy  scene.  He  was  appeared  as  a  guest  on  almost  every  radio comedy program and had his work featured in Triple M/Today Network’s ‘Homegrown Humor Series’. He alsoproduced and broadcast his own show on Bondi FM, Sydney. He has appeared on virtually worth remembering TV comedy show, and has still been able to author two books.

Jason Rash Ryder performs regularly at the Happy Endings Comedy Club alongside other comedians like Jackie Loeb and Aaron Counter. He’s also an accomplished writer and the Director of the Australian Comedy Writers Agency.

Over  25yrs  Jason  has  amassed  a  huge  profile  of live  comedy. Since 1989, Jason has performed at all major festivals including the  prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Festival, Carnegie Hall in London, Yankee Stadium  in  New  York  and The  Masonic  Hall  in Dubbo!.  Touring  extensively  throughout  regional Australia Jason has twice been nominated for the ”MO Comic of the Year Award”.

Film and television have taken to Jason’s style and talent and look with him receiving well over 100 appearances on Australian screens including guest spots on some of Australia’s most popular shows. Despite his huge and demanding workload Jason has also found time to pen two books Rash’s A – Z of Lying and The A – Z of the Best Jokes in the World (Pan Macmillan) which have both found sales and reached success in Australia and the UK.

Jason  was  also  one  of the Comedy Channels favourite  host/presenters for  numerous  productions . Jason also produced his own shows for the Comedy Channel. “Dawn And Barry” a clay animation production reviewing the Olympics, with a 6hr live to air turn over.  It was a world first! And saw Jasonnominated for an “ASTRA” award.

On radio Jason has had his material appear nationally on the Triple M and Today networks as part of the highly regarded ”Home Grown Humour” series. He has also appeared as a guest on virtually every major metropolitan station and produced and performed his own radio show on Sydney’s

‘Rash’  recently  performed  for  us  at  our  end  of  year  Christmas  function.  With  a  number  of present and former rugby league players and supporters in attendance, ‘Rash’ smashed them with  his  down-to-earth  comedy  routine  and  very  funny  one-liners.  He  was  extremely professional in his approach arriving well before he was due on stage and had the audience ‘in stiches’ from his first gag until he finished a hilarious and polished performance 35 minutes later.

I would highly recommend Jason for any corporate, sporting club or charity organisation event if you’re looking for truly entertaining, original comedy act.  ‘Rash’ Ryder is the man

President, Western Sydney Men-of-League We had a ball with Rash up here It was nice to see some laughter out of generally a very beige lot

We will very much keep you guys in mind for future events – Regards, Geoff



“G’day Jasmine,

Thanks for the query, the Beersheba Ball was a great success and everybody commented on  how  good  the  entertainment  was  in  particular  the comedian.  Jason  arrived  early  and  was  well presented for the occasion. He started about 2100 hrs and finished about 2140 hrs. He was very funny and engaged with the crowd enthusiastically. We were able to provide him a meal (one of the spares) and he donated a DVD to the raffle and another to the Alex Wilson Club. If you could pass on our thanks to him again that would be greatly appreciated.

We run a Ball at about the same time each year (end of Oct) and the entertainment type varies each time. Due to the success of this year we would certainly consider using your services again next year if the committee decides to run with a comedian again (or Band/ DJ/ The comedy Trivia also looks good).”

Burleigh Heads Boardriders Club Inc.



On recommendation from Cheyne Horan (Surfing World Champion), Burleigh Boardriders contacted Rash Ryder to be the standup comedian at the Annual Single Fin Charity Luncheon.

Rash  certainly  does  not  disappoint. He did his  stand  up  routine  for  45  minutes  keeping  the  whole  crowd entertained and in stitches. His routine was hilarious and made the event a memorable one for all who attended.

Rash is professional and easy to work with and would recommend for any sports luncheon.

Thanks again

When  Cronulla  Sharks  boardriders  celebrated  our  25th  anniversary,we  hired  Jason  (Rash  Ryder)  as  our entertainment.

The night was a massive success with over 200 people turning out at Miranda hotel.

Jason told us to use him early which good advice was because things did turn a little raucous as the night went on, funnily enough.

If you’re going to have a speaker /comedian/entertainer at your gig, why not use a surfer that knows what it takes to get the best out of your audience.

I was more than happy with Jason and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others.

John Veage – Patron, Cronulla Sharks boardriders club.



“My guests were blown away by how funny and entertaining he was. 

I  was  extremely  pleased  with  how  professional  he  was  keeping  a  rowdy  crowd  informed, entertained and above all happy.  Nothing was a problem.  

I thoroughly recommend anyone looking to add that extra good feeling to their event to give Rash a call.

Sincerely Yours,

Mark Eymes”
