Ned Riseley is a writer, actor, and comedian based in New York. Acting credits include Six Degrees of Separation on Broadway, Poster Boy and Unknown Soldier at Williamstown Theatre Festival, Loveplay at Cloud City and La MaMa, The Mysteries at The Flea, [title of show] at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center, and others. As half of the folk comedy duo Friends Who Folk, Ned hosts a monthly show at Union Hall, has hosted a night of comedy, folk, and deranged friendship at Ars Nova, and regularly performs at venues around the city, like the Upright Citizens Brigade, Caveat, Union Hall, and others. Friends Who Folk has made videos for The New Yorker Shouts and Murmurs, and been featured in Glamour, Splitsider, and Paste, who called them a “crazy insanely madly unbelievably inconceivably unthinkably good faux-folk band.” Ned also writes plays, prose, and non-comedic music.
Friends Who Folk are hosting a show on Friday, June, 29 at Union Hall at 8PM. In between, we are playing on some other great performers’ shows (stay tuned) before we again host at Caveat NYC on the LES on August 2nd. More info soon!!!
