His first feature films were "Starship Troopers" and "That Thing You Do" directed by Tom Hanks.

In the summer of 2014 Ryan and his partners at DudeDayFilms released their first video "Dads Respond to Disney's Frozen". The video went viral and they ultimately launched a web site and movement called "Dad Dudes" that focuses on being dads first and dudes second.
Production on a single camera television comedy titled "Dad Dudes" began in November 2014. Ryan plays a lead character, Ryan Hollis, who is a local high school athletic director that hysterically tries to navigate his career, wife, kids and friends.
The sitcom also stars Jerrry Mathers (Leave it to Beaver) as Ryan's father, Joyce Giraud, Tracy Melchior, Todd Wilkerson and Bradley Dorsey.
In November 2014 Broadstreet Publishing released "Parenting Rules! The Hilarious Handbook for Surviving Parenthood" by Ryan O'Quinn.
Following a long-running tour as a comedian, Ryan wrote poignant and hilarious insight in a parenting book with real stories based on his own family.
His everyman approach to comedy gives him a unique approach to say exactly what most people are thinking. If you've ever known a parent, been a parent, or had a parent...this book was written for you.
The book was officially named an Amazon Best Seller in its first week for sale. In week 3 of release it was a #1 Best Seller in a number of categories including Parenting, Relationships, Parenting Humor, Family and Humor.
Ryan's latest book "Marriage Rules! The Hilarious Handbook for Surviving Marriage" will be released in November 2015.
