Marc Ryan is an Adelaide comedian better known as The Beautiful Bogan. He has been performing stand-up comedy around Australia for the last 10 years. He has had various 4 ½ star reviews from The Adelaide fringe shows he has written and has performed alongside the likes of Wil Anderson, Adam Hills, Dave Hughes, Fiona O’Laughlin. He toured New Zealand as the support act for American comedian Kevin Tate and was recently on the ABC TV show ‘You can’t ask that’ episode 1. Surprise surprise, the topic was ‘Bogans’.

Over the last 4 years, Marc has been on a mission to use his lived experience of mental illness (PTSD, Depression and Anxiety). He created his own epic tour, “The Beautiful Bogan vs The Black Dog”, which entailed 30 gigs in 30 days from mining camps, to a local church, a boxing gym, a skate ramp and many more crazy locations. All of this was to normalise the conversation around mental health and to let men know that they are not alone in their struggle. In recent times Marc has delivered his message of hope in the face of darkness, from drought-affected communities on Eyre Peninsula to fire ravaged towns on Kangaroo Island.

Marc is not afraid to get vulnerable and open up about his personal demons if it means he can make another man or woman not feel alone. His mission is to change one life at a time.
