We were fortunate to talk ish with Chicago’s very own triple threat….Ricky Cowan!!! Yes, people that’s right Ricky Cowan acts, does comedy and play drums, not all at the same time though but then again maybe he can because it’s pretty obvious that Ricky is not letting anything stop him from making it to the top. Let’s get to know Ricky Cowan…
3 Voices: Let the world know who Ricky Cowan really is and what Ricky Cowan does.
Ricky Cowan: Ricky Cowan is the guy to look out for in 2013-2014!!! I’m just striving to be the next big thing coming from Chicago in a different way! I work hard to make this happen every day.
3 Voices: We said your name twice in that one sentence because we were trying to be cute lol. But you’re something like a triple threat being an actor, musician, and comedian. When did you actually find out that you had the skills to do all three? What inspired you to do each one?
Ricky Cowan: I found out about two of the three gifts at an early age. I started playing drums at the age of 3 and I started acting at 9. I always loved the excitement of performing for crowds of people. I always was told that I was funny but I didn’t know I could do comedy until I was 16 when I started competing in Original Comedy on my high school speech team and I never stopped lol. The passion I have for each one of my talents is what keeps me going.
3 Voices: Who are some of your influences that are acting tors, musician and comedians? Where would you like to see yourself as an actor, musician and comedian in the future?
Ricky Cowan: Man Jamie Foxx is great. I love Steve Harvey, Rickey Smiley, Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, Will Smith, Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler. I like Kevin Hart too I get compared to him all the time. In the music Industry I listen to all styles but I enjoy live music from Nick Smith, Calvin Rodgers, Sean Wright and Ronald Bruner Jr. In the future I plan to be one of the best in the entertainment industry!!! Why be average? lol
3 Voices: Of course. How do you manage being a triple threat? Which one would you say is most challenging? If you could only use one of your talents, as far as acting, being a musician and comedian, which one would you choose?
Ricky Cowan: It’s not hard managing all three gifts, I have a strong passion for all three so I make equal time for each one. Acting is the most challenging because you really have to let yourself go and bring a character to life. As picking one gift to run with I just can’t pick a favorite lol I love all three but I would have mix two and that’s comedy and acting. I would do a lot of comedy films lol
3 Voices: You are also known as Eric, who’s a tough but have a sense of humor in a hardcore way guy, from upcoming televised/internet TV Shows such as The Reawakening and Tha Weeknd. Is Eric anything like Ricky Cowan? What does Ricky Cowan really think about Eric?
Ricky Cowan: Eric and Ricky are complete opposites except having a sense of humor that guy Eric is crazy! Sometimes I watch the show and he scares me lol I think Eric is a strong character and a cool dude but I can’t lie I love bringing the character to life nobody disrespects Eric lol
3 Voices: Yeah, dont nobody want to mess with Eric (In our Martin Lawrence’s voice in Blue Streak) lol. What’s next for Ricky Cowan? Will there be more roles for Eric? Are there any exclusives that you can let the people know about? Any surprises or secrets you will like to share?
Ricky Cowan: Right now I’m low-key going crazy with radio. I have my live show coming soon called “The Ricky Rampage Radio Show” So you can expect a lot of laughs and great music but Eric may be back on your TV screen soon you never know. I’m filming for an independent film called “The Loop” which is coming out real soon. Also I’m filming a lot of comedy sketches so be on the lookout for that!!! I’m hosting a lot of events so you can check my social media for events!
