Ryan Verneuille is the co-Founder and Host of ‘The Ryan Show’ which he launched in 2015 on the East End of Long Island. ‘The Ryan Show’ started as a weekly comedy podcast hosted at Yama-0 in Bridgehampton, New York. Ryan and his childhood friend Dave Locascio, commonly known as Hamptons Dave, co-hosted the groundbreaking show, incorporating live streaming on social media networks; quickly becoming known as the local ‘shock jock comedy’ show.
In 2017, Ryan and Dave befriended Mr. Cheeks, the legendary Grammy winning artist from the Queens based Hip Hop group Lost Boyz. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Cheeks came on board to co-host The Ryan Show with Ryan and Dave bringing a unique urban flair to the weekly podcast. Ryan states, “I started the podcast and radio show because I felt it was the best way for me to push my brand of humor and values. It provides a platform for people to have honest conversations and debates which was always my priority and goal:’
Inspired by WWE, Rap Basement and radio legend Howard Stern, Ryan’s favorite part of The Ryan Show is the unforced diversity of their fanbase. “People from all backgrounds and social classes come together to enjoy our brand of entertainment. Our audience members and listeners often say that we remind them of an Old School Shock Jock comedy show with elements of Stretch and Bobbito:’
Ryan emphasizes the need to give back to the community, not just locally but at large. Incorporating topics and guests on the program to touch on cases like wrongful convictions and criminal justice reform. The Ryan Show team also regularly hosts clothing, food and toy drives to provide help to non-profits that provide hurricane relief to those still recovering from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
Most significantly, The Ryan Show has expanded outside the Tri-State area and has brought their show to 98.1 FM The New Urban Heat Radio in Boston, MA and now broadcasting live out of legendary Producer Erick Sermon’s Def Squad Studios on Long Island. The newly formed partnership with Squad Streaming will bring more of a video element to the content created by Ryan, Hamptons Dave and Mr. Cheeks.
Ryan and his cast have been featured in The Huffington Post, CBS Radio and Sirius XM.
