Richard Shultis
Richard Shultis
Although Rich Shultis now makes New York City his home, he is originally from Kingston, NY (the first capital of New York) where he was born and raised as a small town kid with eight brothers and two step sisters.

He got started in the standup comedy world at a relatively advanced age, but quickly moved up through the ranks due to his vast life experience, hard work, professionalism and most importantly, his outrageously funny material.

Starting out at open mics in NYC and any other venue with a stage and a microphone (and some without either) that would allow him to perform, Rich quickly caught the eye of club managers, owners, booking agents and producers. In a short time he became a regular at many of the major NYC comedy clubs including New York, Broadway, Laugh Lounge and Gotham.

He has also performed at venues throughout the country sharing the same stage with the likes of Jim Gaffigan, Dean Edwards, Ted Alexandro, Tom Shilue, Rich Voss, Joe Matarese and Dave Attell, to name a few.

Rich has established himself as a reliable and professional comedian with the reputation of always bringing his “A” game. Whether hosting, performing a guess spot or featuring, he can always be counted on to do a strong performance, leaving the audience in stitches and wanting more.

Rich’s comedy covers a broad and diverse spectrum. Anything from real life experiences (and he has had them all) such as having a son at twenty one, broken relationships, being beat up by his retarded brothers and gay classmates, to current events, common human experiences and emotions, not to mention the absurd and bizarre ideas that pop into his warped mind, no subject or material is out of bounds or beyond his reach. Delivering his material with a combination of truth and artfulness.

Rich has won over a wide array of different audiences. Not only making them laugh but, leaving them shaking their heads “Yes”. He has performed the late spots at NYC comedy clubs to Church shows and everything in between, including bars, restaurants, banquets, proms, colleges, hospitals, nursing homes, bachelor and bachelorette parties, high schools and colleges. He has performed in front of audiences of all races, religions, ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientation with the same degree of success. Rich is truly a versatile and well rounded comedian.
As one of the co-founders of “The Mayhem and Madness Comedy Tour”, Rich has also produced and performed on numerous shows that raise money for worthy causes including Saint Jude’s Hospital, fire and police fund raisers and The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
