Born in Aurora, IL (Wayne’s World), Rich has been making family, friends and strangers laugh with HIS mouth for as long as he can remember. A military brat, Rich moved around a lot during his childhood, providing him with the opportunity to see the world at an early age.
After graduating high school in Austin, TX, Rich attended Texas A & M University, graduating in 2002.
After a chance meeting with creator of the Boondocks (Adult Swim) in 2008, Rich relocated to Los Angeles, CA in 2009 to work as Aaron McGruder’s (The Boondocks) personal assistant during Season 3 Production of the Boondocks. Day after day of making folks who ‘make the funny’ laugh, Rich began his stand-up comedy career when one of the producer’s said - “You ever thought about doing stand-up comedy? You have something…” – and It’s been ON ever since.
Rich is known for his uncompromising examinations of racism and topical contemporary issues, which employ colorful, vulgar and profane language, as well as racial epithets. He reaches a broad audience with his trenchant observations and storytelling style.
