Ryan Shelton

Ryan Shelton is a writer, producer and performer. He is one of four co-directors of TV production company, Radio Karate (with Hamish Blake, Andy Lee and Tim Bartley), a group that was formed after the long-time friends produced a variety/sketch show on Melbourne’s Channel 31 in 2003. That show was of course called Radio Karate.

In 2004, Ryan joined Hamish & Andy at Channel 7 to be a writer for The Hamish & Andy Show. While at Channel 7, Ryan met comedian Chris Lilley and helped him write the cult mockumentary series We Can Be Heroes: Finding the Australian of the Year. In 2006 Ryan again teamed up with his Radio Karate friends to write and perform in the 8-part comedy series, Real Stories on Channel 10.

Ryan starred as a regular cast member on Rove in 2007 with a segment called ‘Rydeas’, which continued into 2008 with a new segment called “Investigationing” and then became “Philosophisationing”. 2008 also saw Ryan co-host the weekly radio show on NOVA, Ryan & Monty, which was networked to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide between 10am-12noon every Saturday morning. Between 2009 and 2010 he co-hosted NOVA’s national drive shift, Ryan, Monty & Wippa.

Between 2011 and 2014, Ryan jetted across the globe producing and starring in all four Gap Year seasons for Nine Network – Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year in the USA, Hamish & Andy’s Euro Gap Year, Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year Asia and Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year: South America.

Ryan has performed the telemovie Scumbus, feature film Border Protection Squad and appeared on several television shows including True Story with Hamish & Andy (on which he is also executive producer and writer), Network TEN drama series The Wrong Girl based on the best-selling novel by Zoë Foster Blake, Thank God You’re Here and Spicks & Specks. He recently starred in his own online comedy shorts How to Life for UK broadcaster Channel 4.

Ryan co-wrote and appeared in series 1 of It’s A Date and was delighted to co-write again with Peter Helliar on series 2. In 2014 Ryan covered the ‘mat leave’ position for Zoe Foster Blake, writing a weekly column for Sunday Style. Ryan has also been a contributing writer for online magazine Broadsheet.

So far in 2020, Ryan has starred in the ABC’s Covid-19 inspired comedy At Home Alone Together, where his segments included “how to paint kitchen cabinets” and “how to hammer a nail”. Ryan has also committed to making 11 things for fun in 2020, with a different thing being released on the 11th of every month on Instagram and his website https://ryyyyyyyyyyyan.com/.

Ryan is the creator, writer, director, editor and star of the world’s first (as far as he knows) “show” made exclusively for Instagram, CLIFF.
