Riley Elton McCarthy is an Equity Membership Candidate (EMC) under Actor's Equity Association. As a trans performer, they prefer to perform in roles they've written for themself, such as Sloane in IVORIES (which they portrayed at off-broadway's 59E59, Edinburgh Fringe, and The Brick AUX), but favorite credits from work they didn't write themselves include Every Baby in M.D. Schaffer's Bimbo Summit (Dramatists Guild Foundation) and Ensemble/Narrator in She Kills Monsters (Marymount Manhattan College). 

They are fascinated by physical movement theatre, commedia del'arte, and clowning, with a background in contemporary dance, and have a great love of comedy. They don't really prescribe themselves to a particular "type", but if they did, they'd say they like to make themself the silliest guy in any room, and would say that god gives his greatest battles to his silliest of clowns.
