Teddy Ray, a rising comedic talent with appearances on Wild ‘n Out, How to Be Broke and Pause With Sam Jay and MTV comedy clip show Messyness, has died. He was 32.
The comedian, actor and writer whose legal name is Theadore Brown was found deceased in Rancho Mirage, California, after Riverside County sheriff’s deputies received a call and responded to a private residence in the desert community at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sgt. Brandi Swan told The Hollywood Reporter.
A cause of death for the Gardena, California, resident is currently unknown, and the investigation is being handled by the Riverside County Coroner’s Office, according to Swan.
The multi-hyphenate served as the co-host of Ridiculousness spinoff Messyness — which was renewed for a second season last December — and appeared alongside reality star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, actress Tori Spelling and ice skater Adam Rippon.
