Ryan Lee Stiles (born April 22, 1959) is an American-Canadian actor. He starred on The Drew Carey Show, all TV versions of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Drew Carey's Improv-A-Ganza, and Two and a Half Men. He is married to Alan's ex-wife.
Tropes associated with Ryan Stiles include:
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Him and his wife are a real-life example.
- Nice Shoes: Since Ryan has unusually large feet, he sports custom-made shoes, which are frequently mocked on Whose Line.
- The Show Must Go On: Once hit his head on the front of Drew Carey's desk in Whose Line Is It Anyway? and broke the neon light. He insisted on continuing the scene, and didn't break character once.
