You may remember Richard playing U2’s Bono in HFF17’s multiple-award-winning BONOANDTHEEDGEWAITINGFOR GODOMINO’S, a satire on celebrity culture wrapped in a parody of Samuel Beckett’s WAITINGFORGODOT. He also wrote and directed that play which was eventually included in TheTVolution.com’s Best of Los Angeles Theatre 2017 list and just finished its third Los Angeles run with shows now upcoming in San Francisco and Las Vegas.
His first Hollywood Fringe Fest. experience was playing Jake in the HFF15 Encore-award-winning drama ONLYTHEMOONHOWLS. Among Richard’s other favorite stage roles were playing German theoretical physicist Werner Heisenberg in Michael Frayn’s COPENHAGEN at The Attic Theatre and playing Johnny in John Patrick Shanley’s semi-autobiographical BEGGARS IN THEHOUSE OF PLENTY at The Hollywood Court.
On TV, you may have seen him as a very, very concerned detective in a couple murder shows.
Richard has also authored a comedic memoir, developed from his solo show about living next to a barking dog, called THEDOGLOG which is being published by Chicago Review Press for spring, 2019.
Richard’s debut storytelling album, RESIGNTOWN, USAANDOTHERSTORIES is available on iTunes. He was awarded The Other Network’s Comedy Award for his observations about an LA sportscaster‘s penchant for wearing double-breasted suits which is track no. 2 of the 3 in that collection.
Richard is very excited to be working with Fearless Imp Prods. and the incredible THEIMPORTANCE OF BEINGOSCAR cast and crew for HFF18!
