Theresa Ryan grew up in Las Vegas where she attended the The Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts. Part of the singing trio The Bobbi Dazzlers, she cut her teeth singing for boxing conventions and degenerate gamblers at slot parties.
She continued her theater education at the prestigious Acting Conservatory at SUNY Purchase, where she played such roles as "everyone's mom," "old woman," and Grusha in Caucasian Chalk Circle.
She's studied improv with Upright Citizen's Brigade and The Second City, where she was also an understudy for the Las Vegas mainstage show. Theresa has performed the role of Donna Marsala in Tony and Tina's Wedding, which showcased her talent of indicating with her body the lyrics of the song she is singing.
You may have caught Theresa on the MTV show Awkward or as a contestant on that Wayne Brady game show Don't Forget the Lyrics. Perhaps you saw her in various sketches for the now retired G4 Network's Attack of the Show. I'd like to say you might've caught her in a Comcast commercial... but that never aired.
If you've called the LA-based consulting company Globanet, you may have heard some of her sweet voiceover work on the telephone switchboard. Or if you saw this commercial on the internet for a pet finding device.
Speaking of the internet, you can check out all the videos she and Artie O'Daly have recorded as the duo Skip and Terri. She also moonlights as Andrea Scattinelli, a classy Christmas song scattin' lady, and takes some bizarre turns as Karen in director Sean Barrett's Gnarlywich videos.
