RILEY FOX is a thinking-man in a non-thinking world. Armed with a sharp mind (and an equally sharp tongue), Riley’s comedy points out the absurdities of just about everything, from relatable topics like college and music to loftier musings about religion and society in general. Riley’s performances always have something for everybody, allowing him to become one the most versatile up-and-coming comics in the Southeast, with an act that is simultaneously smart but not condescending, silly but not patronizing. “Riley Fox mixes a late-night-monologue approach with the observational and philosophical stylings of Bill Hicks.” (sinizine.net)
He makes audiences laugh all across the country with his signature brand of intelligent and engaging humor, performing in such cities as Nashville, TN; Asheville, NC; Paducah, KY; Indianapolis, IN; Austin, TX; and many, many more in-between. In October 2011, Riley finished in third place at the 2nd Annual Rocky Top Comedy Contest held in Knoxville, TN. He has also shared the stage with such names as Gary Gulman, Henry Phillips, Rory Scovel, Stewart Huff, and Robert Hawkins. Most recently, he performed at the 2012 Cape Fear Comedy Festival in Wilmington, NC alongside nearly 40 comedians selected from across the country. Come see why the Knoxville News Sentinel calls Riley, “a performer to look out for,” and don’t miss this growing force to be reckoned with in the comedy world!
