About Rickey Star
bronx, , NY
Take the unexpected, and occasionally, the unthinkable. Now make it all accessible, refreshingly original, and downright hilarious, and you begin to have a small glimpse into the stand-up comedy of Ricky Star. Rarely taking things at face value, even the most ordinary topics are spun into new directions that only his creatively warped mind could envision. Ricky always keeps audiences on their toes by being about as predictable as a car thief whose options are running out. He is the comedic wheelman, taking audiences on a conceptual joyride fueled by an overactive imagination. Along the way, they find humor on every corner, and taboos thrown into the ditch like a drifter with no money for gas. Ricky Star started his stand up comedy career in 1989 in his home town of Mount Holly,New Jersey at his High School Talent Show . His act developed at an incredible rate, and within the first few months he quickly started catching the eyes and ears of club owners and comics in the stand up circuit. He quickly became a regular host at the New York Comedy Clubs Open Mic Night.Where he honed his skill for working with an audience and generating tons of fresh, original, A-list material. From there he progressed to working just about every comedy club, and one-nighter in the area, and became a regular at the New York Comedy Club. In 1992, Ricky landed a role as a Cop in a televison drama such as Guardian Angels in 1995 and went on to use his talent to make people laugh for a good cause by doing Comedy Shows for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
