Who is Ritch Shydner?
Ritch has made numerous appearances on the David Letterman and Jay Leno shows, and before that Johnny Carson. He did an HBO half-hour special, One Night Stand. He played Al Bundy’s co-worker on Married with Children, and made guest appearances on many other TV shows, such as Designing Women and Roseanne. Ritch was able to translate his modest success on TV into an equally obscure film career, appearing in Steve Martin’s Roxanne and Eddie Murphy’s Beverly Hills Cop II before moving on to smaller roles in more obscure pictures.
Ritch wrote material for Jeff Foxworthy’s Grammy nominated comedy albums, Totally Committed and Big Fun. He also wrote for singers Kenny Rogers and Pam Tillis, as well as internationally acclaimed ventriloquist, David Strassman. A nationally touring motivational speaker, Steven B. Wiley, used Ritch’s service to make his pitch funnier.
