Ritch Shydner has written and performed since 1978.
In the 1980’s, Ritch appeared on Late Night with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with both Johnny Carson and Jay Leno plus had his own HBO half-hour special.
In the 90’s he played Al Bundy’s co-worker on “Married with Children”, and made guest appearances on “Designing Women” and “Roseanne.”
