Hawaiian Ryan is Japanese/Chinese/Hawaiian, but identifies as Podagee.
He has solutions for Hawaii:
Put Kirk Caldwell in charge of the Thirty Meter Telescope--
It will never get built.
You might know him as the Ryan from the "The Sam and Ryan show" (@samandryanshow) on 93.9 The Beat (@939beat), every morning, M-F, 6a to 10a...
You also might know him from accidentally mistaking him for Bruce Lee that one time.
I mean, Jenner.
Sorry, Caitlyn Jenner.
The point is, Hawaiian Ryan isn't easily categorized, he's multi-dimensional, possessing many talents--
one of which is writing in 3rd person so that he can pretend someone else is writing all this complimentary crap about him, when really..(whispers) "it's just him".
1990: Failed Math, disappoints Asian Father, decides to become a stand-up comedian, places 2nd in a state-wide, high school talent competition called, "Brown Bags to Stardom", hosted by 93.9 FM (not 939 the strip club, obviously. He auditioned, but "You ain't got no ass", was their response.)
1991: Joins local comedy/music group "The 3 Local Boyz" with Jimmy "Da Geek" and "Lanai Boy", putting out smash hit parody songs like, "Rice, Rice, baby", "I'm a Filipino" and "Tiny Boobies".
1999: Wins "Best Comedy Album" at the Hawaii Music Awards for his debut solo comedy album, "Saving Ryan's Privates"-- never mind that he was the only one nominated, a win is a win, haters.
2005: Hosts, Directs, Produces Hawaii's favorite Wedding show, "Hawaii Love Stories" on Oceanic cable, even though he's never been in a relationship longer than 3 years.
2006: "The Sam and Ryan show" goes to Philly, taking over Wired 96.5 FM. It's frikken cold. They crawl back to Hawaii like a couple of bitches.
2016: "The Sam and Ryan show" is the #1 morning show in Hawaii. Gets bought out by iHeart Radio to launch the new 93.9 The Beat, where they both got their radio career started, chicken skin, brah.
