How tall is Ryan Lee Stiles

Ryan Lee Stiles Height

6ft 6 (198.1 cm)

American actor and comedian, best known for appearing on The Drew Carey Show and Whose Line is it Anyway? In 1997 (Aug 10) he said "I don't think anybody has attractive feet and when they're size 14 like mine, they're even more unattractive. But I'm 6ft 5in and my mother was right when she said I'd look really stupid with small feet." He has though, said 6ft 6 on several occasions, even his producer commenting "Ryan's height varies during the course of the series. At the beginning he is 6' 6" and by the end, because he works so hard, he's only 6' 2"."

Looks like a tall Robin Williams. 6'6 seems accurate though.

Rob, who do you think measured taller peak, Ryan Lee Stiles or Bill Fagerbakke?

I notice both guys have their average guesses just over 6ft6...
Editor Rob
Hard to tell. I can understand maybe Bill at one stage did measure over 6ft 6.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Nov/22
Colin could've been 6ft1½ range peak. Ryan always looked a typical 6ft6 guy, neither strong nor weak.
bannishg said on 8/Mar/22
Ryan is 6ft6, tall enough to see 6ft1 to 6ft2 Colin’s bald spot without tippy toes, LOL
Darksol64 said on 12/Feb/22
Although the camera shots we get of the two aren't the best, he just doesn't seem to tower over Ashton Kutcher as much as 6'6.25 Carmelo does.

He was nearing mid-50's by the time the two were together on that show, so I'm betting he's dropped just a little by then and probably wasn't the full 6'6 to begin with. May have been close to a flat 6'5 at this point which is still huge on screen. Plus his posture was probably slopping at this age just due to his size. I'm only barely scraping 6'2 (33 years old) and it takes a lot of effort to stand straight and it hurts my back sometimes - and I'm lightweight at 176 pounds.

Peak, in his 20s and 30s, he was likely very close to 6'6. I'm going to guess 1 quarter under.

Hi Rob, I think he deserves to be part of the "Comedian" category.

Also, do you think he has a lower eye level? I can't find a pic of him and Colin Mochrie, where has straight posture, but I assume he'd be an eye level taller than Colin.
Editor Rob
Yeah he's rarely standing need to watch the tv show to really see moments in which he stands tall and looks towering beside other guests.
slothee said on 26/Jan/21
He’s in the 6’5” zone today. Looks not much more than 7 inches taller than Drew Carey as of recently.

Peak: 6’6” 198cm near low
Today: 6’5 1/4”(?) 196cm near low

Being 60+ and maintaining 6’6” seems less likely though possible. Most people shrink some by that time and very tall people shrink more and are more prone to having back problems.
Chasezly said on 26/Oct/20
To people who are saying he's 6'4, he towers over Wayne Brady, a 6'0 guy. Honestly, I'd put him closer to 6'7 but he's known to wear shoes with heels so idk...
Dream said on 17/Jun/20
@Tall Sam

Actually, thinking about it, I think Rob might've met Bruce Spence when he was in his 60's. He also mentioned Bruce was a genuine 6'6" guy. Maybe Spence could've been 6'6.25".
Tall Sam said on 15/Jun/20
I think its be hard to parse potentially between Stiles and Spence but then wouldn't be surprised if Spence had him by a smidge
Dream said on 13/Jun/20
Do you think Bruce Spence could be more of a 6’6 1/8” guy, than say Ryan Stiles?
Editor Rob
If you measured them, maybe the odds on Spence being taller are greater.

6 ft 4 next to charlie sheen
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Dec/19
Kilborn looks closer to 6ft4 if this guy is 6ft6
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Jul/19
Rob, Click Here 1:48 we can clearly see it is hard to push under 4cm between Ryan and 6'5 Craig so would you think its more on the problem Ryan had downplay a half inch or Craig could be 6'4 1/2?
Editor Rob
I don't think Stiles is over 6ft 6, but as mentioned once before maybe there's more chance of 6ft 4.5 for craig
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jun/19
I did say he is always legit 6'6 but not sure if he really has losing some height through out this few years. Click Here Also he can look 6'6 1/2 with 6'5 claim Craig Kilborn.

he had little over 2 inches on david hasselhoof and david was no less than 193, could have been 193,5 at peak. Ryan can sometimes look 199. Kilborn looked mutch more than 1 inch shorter and he is probably 195 cm on good days
berta said on 19/Mar/19
this guy could be a fraction over 6 foot 6.
joe### said on 13/Nov/18
rob, ryan 6'6 puts crai kilborn at 6'4.5 what do you think?

Editor Rob
It might be possible he is around that mark, though Ryan was the one probably standing the most static and straight.

Funny how the Who’s Line crew are all pretty tall.

@ Bunnie - I really like your name! I used to call my cat Honey that sometimes! 🐈🐇

Ryan can have 6ft6.
Bunnie said on 29/Jul/18
Absolute 6’ 6” easily. It is apparent he is in the extreme height range, especially on shows like 2 1/2 men. Not like Joel McHale, 6’ 4” tall; SERIOUSLY tall.

194 for Kilborn and 199 for stiles

I never really understood this picture of Ryan and Ashton

berta said on 24/Oct/17
i dont believe there is only 1 inch bweetween him and crag kilborn. it looks more like 4 cm maybe even 4,5. kilborn could be 194cm and stiles legit 198 guy. thats what i think
Canson said on 15/Jun/17
197cm peak
S.J.H said on 30/Jan/17
Craig kilborn is no way 6'5 but 6'4.5 and a peak ryan lee stiles is just honest 6'6/6'5.75 but he might be dipping into 6'5.5 nowadays and i notice he often wear flat footwear that gave 0.7-0.8" range than fitting in 1" regular footwear
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 26/Nov/16
I think he was always just a shade under 6'6", thus his occasional 6'5" quote. But probably very close to 6'6". He may have lost a tad today too.
Unsub 5'10 said on 12/Nov/16
He really towers over Ashton Kutcher, Ryan's height is 6'6".
Wow said on 24/Feb/16
Incorrect, just saw Drew Carey show season 4 episode 11 and Niel Flynn guest starring was obviously taller than Ryan Stiles...was skeptical but really focused on footwear ...
Matthew said on 2/Oct/15
I saw a clip from Parker Lewis which had Ryan standing in front of 6'7 Abraham Benrubi and Ryan was an inch shorter
Phantom said on 11/Jul/15
Penn Jillette had a good 2 inches on him.
The Exorcist said on 1/Dec/14
Ryan with 5'7" Lauren Cohan.
Click Here

There looks to be an 11" difference here, but Ryan has shoe advantage as Lauren is wearing flats.

Current height is about 6'5.5". A 6'6" peak is believable.
Mathew said on 4/Jun/14
Rob, do you think he may have shrunk from his peak? I honestly can't see him being just .25" shorter than Gronkowski there, but maybe he's lost a fraction?
Editor Rob
he could have lost a wee fraction
Mathew said on 4/Jun/14
Rob Gronkowski was measured 6'6'.25". Click Here I'm not so sure Ryan is a legit 6'6", at least not in 2014 (I guess he could have lost a fraction at his age). He looked more 6'5" range to me.
Balrog said on 21/Feb/14
6'6" is boderline very tall/huge range. A legit 6'6" man would completely tower an average guy and makes 6'1"-6'2" guy look short.
Mr. R said on 18/Feb/14
I remember he was on Craig Kilborn's show a few years ago (Now its Craig Ferguson). Kilborn always claimed 6-5, but Ryan called him on it and said he wasn't. That night, Ryan claimed 6-6.
Lillo thomas said on 18/Feb/14
6'6 isn't only tall. 6'6 is very tall.
Z123 said on 17/Feb/14
People who are saying 6'6 isn't that tall have short man syndrome. I'm 6'2.4353 and 6'6 is tall
James said on 7/Feb/14
I've seen him twice and I know someone that grew up with him in Seattle. Actual flat height is 6'6.5!" He has the exact opposite of a "Napoleon Complex." He hates his height and does anything to downplay it! Extreme height in Hollywood is a negative almost all the time! Just ask Tom Cruise.
Eric said on 18/Nov/13
A standard door height is 6'8" so 6'6" is about right

in two and a half men, charlie says that herb is 6ft 4in
balrog said on 7/Dec/12
Hard to say but I think between 6'5'' and 6'6'' is the range for Stiles. Although I think he's closer to 6'6'' if you ask me he looks REALLY tall on screen.
stretch said on 11/Nov/12
i'm 5 9 and 6 6 doesn't seem that tall...................
Tom said on 15/Jun/12
He walked passed me at LAX and few years ago and absolutely towered over everyone. I figured he was at least 6-6.
steven said on 14/Jan/12
this funny men is genuinely 6'5 at best and 6'6 in shoe. my dad at age 65 a solid 6'5 at peak(6'4.75 now) does't look any shorter than this guy apearance on screen. 6'4.75-6'5 guy can apear like 6'7 on screen sometimes. i believe he is lower than 6'6 for truth.
LAN Jiao said on 1/Nov/11
6'5.75 for stile
Silent d said on 30/Oct/11
He has bad posture. He towers over everyone. In two and a half men 20+ cm taller than jon cryer and charlie sheen. I can live with 6 foot 6. I think 6 foot 6 is a little to tall. He should stand next to tim robbins. What happened to him on two and a half men? He just disappeared. He is freakishly tall. I want to see him next to brad garrett.
T-Squared said on 22/Oct/11
I can't believe how close the Whose Line cast usually looks in terms of height. You have to look for a few minutes to really see how tall Ryan is. On the Drew Carey show, you can tell right away how much he towers over everyone.
Just Commenting said on 1/Sep/11
Ryan is noticeably taller than Jeff Davis and Jeff is 6ft 4in (self professed according to this site), Ryan looks 1.5 to 2 inches taller. So with Ryan himself saying 6ft 5in one time and 6ft 6in the next, he's probably 6ft 5.5in
Nikkster said on 19/Aug/11
Charlie Sheen mentioned 6'4 in two and a half men. But to me, he looks around 6'6.
anon said on 10/Aug/11
Jeff davis is 6'5 anmd Ryan is taller than him, so I'd say 6'6 easy possible 6'7
James said on 23/May/11
I think 6´5" is more accurate, Charlie Sheen is 5´9" tops...
Shantileigh said on 4/Apr/11
Wowwas ,I wish I taller. I'm 5'6" I am the only tall girl besides my aunt.
Mathew said on 18/Feb/11
6'5.75" seems like a realistic option.
Anonymous said on 16/Jan/11
looks really goofy so yes i'd say almost 6'6. at least 7 inch difference between him and the infamous Charlie Sheen. If Sheen is 5'10 (and not 5'9)then he is almost 6'6. If Sheen is 5'9 then forget it Stiles is 6'5.
gm said on 26/Dec/10
I am 6'3" and I met him at bestbuy he is an easy 6'6"
Alex5 said on 4/Jun/09
Me again, sorry, but I found a very good shot to judge Ryan's height by. In this clip he's standing close to 6'2" Colin Mochrie, and the camera angle is very good, you can judge for yourself. It's around 4:41-4:42, pause there. Neither of the two wears inflated shoes so it's pretty accurate. Click Here
Alex said on 3/Apr/09
Oh - and sorry, maybe I should change my name - the Alex that posted in '06 isn't me. I really should probably change my name although the site says not to.
Alex said on 27/Mar/09
Stiles, 6'5"? No way in hell. Look at the difference between him and 6'2" Colin Mochrie, there's EASILY 4 inches difference. He's a minnimum of 6'6. Maybe a bit taller. But I mean, either way and semantics aside there's no way he's under 6'6.
Big T said on 25/Mar/09
In two and a half men he only seemed 8 inches taller than Sheen absolute max. It was never really close a full head difference. Personally I think that's because Sheen is 5'10", but you could also argue a 6'5" Stiles....he did say 6'5" himself after all!
Marissa Evans said on 22/Mar/09
On Colin Mochrie's official website, it says that he's now 5'4. XD
Alex said on 2/Mar/09
Quite honestly, I think Ryan is genuinely 6'7", or at least 6'6.5". He looks more than 6'6 and towers over people more than a 6'6" person does.
Ghost said on 15/Feb/09

From 5:30 onwards Stiles is easily 2 inches taller than David Hasselhoff.

6'6, no doubt.
Korben said on 13/Feb/09
heres a good comparison of craig kilborn and ryan stiles Click Here Defiantly at least an inch there. 6 5 for kilborne and 6 6 for stiles is good.
yoyo said on 9/Jan/09
his not 6ft6. 6ft5 he mention it was right.looks 6ft6 with shoe.
Anonymous said on 29/Dec/08
On an episode of Whose line a couple of weeks ago he said he was 6'6. I know what you guys mean. It's funny when judith trys to kiss him because he is so tall.
Anonymous -15 said on 22/Nov/08
Yeah , he seemed an absolute giant on Two and A Half Men next to Charlie Sheen ( 5'10) and Jon Cryer (5'8.75) , so 6'6" is right though I remember in one of the episodes Charlie saying he was 6'4". ??
kyle said on 3/Nov/08
6"6 he looks 10feet tall standing next to charley sheen
Maddie said on 10/Oct/08
Well i knew he was tall but 6'6" is quite tall to say the least i am only 4'10". (LOL)! Hey Sergeant where did you meet Ryan?
Sergeant said on 30/Mar/08
I'm 6"5 and Ryan is slightly taller than me, rougly an Inch, so 6"6 is accurate
Kid-Icarus said on 4/Feb/08
He probably got tired of saying 6'6" so he said 6'5" once. But I can't see his height below 6'6".
Jewlsy said on 14/Nov/07
one thing i know for certain is that at his peak he was 6ft7 but he has stooped a bit and is now 6ft6 exactly i think from always looking down on whose line is it and drew carey show lol
OutBenchThis said on 12/Nov/07
I have heard numerous reference to his height being 6'5", both by Drew, Clive and Ryan. Although I do admit he looks 6'6".
Alex V. said on 12/Nov/07
Looked to me a bit shorter than Benrubi, 0.5 or 0.75 inch.
ryan stiles no1 fan said on 15/Feb/07
ryan is 6'6 he said it on a interview and have you noticed that hump hes a got on is back from lookin down alot i wonder why???? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm??
Alex said on 14/Dec/06
Possibly that he's 6'5.5 and that would show that Craig Kilborn is more 6'3.
sam said on 1/Jun/06
I saw when Hasselhoff was on and it definitely was at the least a 2 inch difference.
cantstop25 said on 6/May/06
looking at him noex to 6'4.5" david hasselhoff I think you could give him 6'7" you have to watch the whole clip

Editor Rob
yes, there's a swing in height there, can look at times like 3 inches for sure, although postures, at a couple of points the difference looks more 2 inch, but yeah, if anything the hoff could be 6ft 4 on the button as opposed to the extra 1/2 inch...
Jake said on 7/Mar/06
There was a reference on the Drew Carey show as 6'5". He is probably about 6'5.5" range and rounds up often and down occasionally. Honestly, what is the point in him saying 6'5" if he is a full 6'6".
316 said on 19/Jan/06
One of the few guys whoz honestly very tall and the most talented stand up comedian i have seen.
CelebHeights Editor said on 26/Nov/05
An Executive Producer on asked Ryan's Height: "[He is] 6'6". Unlike most people on TV, Ryan is actually taller when you meet him in person. This is because the other regulars on Whose Line are also tall. I think the shortest guy we've had was Robin Williams who I would consider to be of normal height since he is indeed about my height."
Brett said on 24/Nov/05
That guy is next to Dean Cane in the one pic and is taller then him, but is way shorter then Bader in the other pic, so I assume hes 6'3" odd
Mr. R said on 23/Nov/05
I think Ryan is actually 6-6, and Bader looks to be about 4 inches shorter.
Xhavier said on 20/Nov/05
Stiles is 6'6". When standing beside Magic Johnson (who is actually 6'7"--NOT 6'9"), he was 1" shorter. They were both standing straight and Ryan even seemed to purposely stand straighter or with better posture.

Again this leads me to say that Kilborn is 6'3 1/2" (6'5" in 1 1/2" basketball shoes--since he was basketball player).

Then the startling conclusion--corroborating Kevin Costner's remark about Nuke Laloosh in Bull Durham (a six-foot three-inch..blah blah blah), that Tim Robbins is 6'3". (which I still find hard to beleive).
Anonymous said on 8/Oct/05
that diedrich bader guy looks a couple inches shorter then stiles, he must be near 6'3" ?
CelebHeights Editor said on 11/Aug/05
Way back on Whose Line he also said "I'm 6 foot 6".
cantstop25 said on 27/May/05
the thing is though he has 2-3 inches on the "muscular 6'5"" Craig Kilborn.
if Ryan is only 6'5 kilborn is more like 6'3"
cantstop25 said on 30/Apr/05
i think he is atleast an inch taller.
