Ryan Kelly is an LA based writer/director who graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 2013 with a degree in Film & TV Production. Kelly met Andrew Heder in an improv class in 2014 and they’ve been co-creating comedic shorts ever since. Kelly’s background in post-production (editing/VFX) gave him the opportunity to work on (and eventually help write/direct) a daily sketch comedy show for Fullscreen’s streaming service––where he met the other star of Macrocosm, Chris Duce. In 2017, Kelly, Heder and Duce teamed up to produce Fullscreen’s most shared original comedy ever: The Sheriff Who Changes His Stance on Marijuana (35M+ views). The trio then founded the rapidly successful independent comedy brand, Very Serious Content (50M+ views). The satire brand, which parodied Facebook-first news brands like Now This, quickly found a way to routinely increase the workload of the fact checkers at In 2019, Kelly began directing branded series for Jurassic World and Hot Wheels before reuniting with Duce for Macrocosm. In 2020, Macrocosm premiered on DUST. It was so well received that Queen Elizabeth II officially knighted the film. Shortly thereafter, Kelly, Heder and Duce became the most sought-after comedic trio in the modern era. Universally appreciated for their undeniable comedic brilliance, the trio entered into development with every single one of their comedy idols. In 2021, due to their film and TV ideas being in such high demand, Google partnered with Kelly, Heder and Duce to reproduce their minds for sale on the open market. By early 2022, in what the trio is calling “just the beginning,” the trio’s comedic sensibilities had been successfully mapped onto every living organism on planet earth.
