Ryan McMahon Workshops - Youth Leadership & Empowerment Through The Arts

Long before I was a professional comedian & writer - I worked with Youth. I was a Friendship Centre baby growing up and I’m proud to say that I’ve been involved with Youth Leadership, Training & Programming for well over half of my life. Working with Youth is as important to me as being on stage. I’ve been told I’m good at it. I’ve been told I should do it more often. That’s why I’m writing this blog post.



I often speak candidly about the fact that Art, more specifically Theatre, saved my life. It gave me a place to rest my worries, it gave me skills to communicate & learn about trusting others, it gave me a place to be myself. 

The key to Empowerment & Leadership in Youth Communities is ensuring Youth are being heard and are given the space to be themselves. In the workshops series’ that I deliver - this is where we begin - communication & trust.

The workshop series’ that I offer are flexible and can be tailored to meet the needs of the host community. We work together to meet your goals and I won’t bullshit you - I won’t come to your community for a paycheque and leave the Youth without tangible skills or programs/exercises to build from.

I believe in connecting community with community. Often our Youth are disconnected from those that can make the biggest difference in their lives - the community members. I engage various members of the community to help us deliver the workshops and I try to connect Youth with community members that work in the various programs and services to help carry goals forward.

Have a look below and see if any of these workshop options fit anything you might be doing in your community. If you think there might be a fit there - send me an email at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for reading.

Red Man Laughing - The Madeline Terbasket Interview


In this episode of the Red Man Laughing Podcast we sit down and have a chat with up and coming actor/comedian Madeline Terbasket. In this chat we talk about starting out in comedy, taking risks in order to get to where you want to be and the potential fallout from that. We talk comedy, a lot, but we also talk a lot about what it takes to start a professional journey in the big bad world of Art.

This interview takes a bit of a turn about half way through when we talk about Madeline recently diagnosed as Bipolar. Madeline candidly talks about working with the diagnosis and being patient with herself as she learns to walk with Bipolar disorder and the mania that can follow. Ryan shares some of his very dark secrets and together they work there way to a place of calm and peace with understanding that the very real impacts of depression & other mental health issues.
