In 2012, he released Ryan McMahon UnReserved, making him the first Native comedian to tape a one-hour stand-up comedy special for CBC TV. In July 2012, Ryan made his debut at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, where he was included in the event’s New Faces list. Ryan tours independently, selling out large and small venues, and his live show combines stand-up, improv, sketch comedy, and storytelling into an original style he calls Indian vaudeville.
