WHO I AM
Rick Mirarchi, born and raised in South Philadelphia, found his start in comedy on a bet that he would take a class to see if he could make other people laugh. The grand revelation: Rick was actually funny.
From a young age, Rick was the class clown who constantly had something to say. He was so funny that the nuns would find a moment to laugh between his beatings. Soon after earning an Art History degree from LaSalle University, Rick ran out of pot and realized he had no future (according to his mother). Then came that fateful day - while there's never a bet Rick can't lose, this time he had his life on the line. Besides, a man needs to eat. Especially this one!
Rick has been featured at predominate comedy clubs in the Delaware Valley, including Helium, Raven Lounge and Risque. He finds inspirations for his material in fluorescent trees, avocados, triangles, hot chicks, and everyday life. Rick believes: "If someone falls, it is my purpose to observe, sit back and write a joke about it."
However, most of Rick's inspiration comes from his relationships with his large Italian family.
Ricks hobbies include cooking for friends and family, working for WMMR, and watching sports.
