Richie Moriarty is an actor, writer and improviser, who has appeared in numerous films and television series while continuing to perform in New York and around the country with his improv and sketch group, Simply Unemployable.
Richie began taking improv classes in 2004 and joined the mainstage cast at Improv Asylum in Boston in 2006 where he performed in six shows every week for four years. After beginning to book roles in commercials and television shows in Boston, Moriarty decided to move to New York in 2013 and began writing and performing at the UCB Theatre in New York. In 2016, he performed at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal as a prestigious New Face Character. In 2018, Moriarty starred with John Malkovich in a CBS teaser broadcast before the kickoff of the AFC Championship game, which won four Sports Emmys. In 2019, CBS Sports had him back to star with John Malkovich and Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl LIII Opening.
He has been a recurring character in the television series “The Tick,” guest-starred on “What We Do In The Shadows,” “The Last O.G,” “Adam Ruins Everything,” “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “House of Cards,” “Orange is the New Black” and “Search Party.” He is also a voice actor who voices multiple characters in the PBS KIDS show “Pinkalicious & Petterific.” His film credits include “How to be Single” and “Going In Style,” which he starred in alongside Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman.
Moriarty was born and raised in Rockville, Maryland and is a graduate of Boston College. He spent eight years as an architectural photographer photographing homes all over the greater Boston area. So, if you want to nerd out about lenses or f-stops or whatever, he’s totally down. The stars of his life are his wife, Ciara, their 3-year-old son, Devlin, and their June new-born. His mom, dad, and sister, Colleen, continue to be his biggest fans.
Richie’s birthday is April 25. He can be followed on Twitter and Instagram @richietown.
