Richard Kiss is Canadian. He's a full-fledged nerd, complete with a math scholarship from UCLA. He got started in stand-up comedy by teaching math courses. Everyone knows math is hilarious!

He worked in Silicon Valley for various technology start-up companies, doing start-up stuff like programming, annoying co-workers, rolling his eyes and breathing.

Richard performs all over the west coast of the US and Canada. Mr. Kiss's performance style includes a mix of general goofiness and original insight on a wide range of topics. His eclectic, irreverent and understated manner will make you think about social habits, grammar, the fun in math and science, hypocrisy, and the absurdity of the obvious. He will definitely leave you laughing. You may even leave a little smarter.

Richard is available to perform at technology conferences and other events.
