On television, Hendrickson has appeared on "30 Rock," "Night Shift" and recently made his debut on "The Late Show with David Letterman." His CD, “It’s Ready”, airs regularly on SiriusXM Radio. Hendrickson has a sarcastic and conversational style. As a comedy veteran of more than 10 years, his original material is based on real-life experiences and observations.

Aside from working comedy venues around the world, Richie has also had television appearances on Comedy Central, VH1, The Rosie O'Donnell Show and The Morning Show with Mike & Juliet.
