Ray Devito
Ray Devito
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, and raised in an Italian-Americanized family, this former Second City performer is one of the youngest comedians headlining across the country. From childhood to the enduring struggles of trying to adjust to adulthood, Ray's material touches on all of his life experiences and insecurities. His humor is smart, likeable, and energetic. Besides touring the nation's top comedy clubs, Ray is also one of the most requested comedians on college campuses.

Based in New York City, Ray is quickly making an impact on the Manhattan comedy scene. In 2005, he made his national television debut on the Lifetime Network, where his performance at Gotham Comedy Club aired on "How Clean is Your House?" That performance led to appearances on the E! Network and Entertainment Tonight. His 'Laundromat Sketch' was featured in the New York Times and his 'The Tudor's Henry the VIII: The Real Story' was the featured video on Comedy Central's sister site Atom.com. He currently has his own web series on AOL's men's website Asylum.com. Ray also frequents the Bob and Tom Show, he's been the featured comedian of the week on SIRIUS Satellite Radio, he's also a regular guest on the very popular award winning podcast Keith and the Girl, and clips off his first full-length comedy CD entitled "1647 Waterbury" can be heard on SIRIUS and XM Satellite Radio.
