He gets paid to make people laugh, but when it comes to real estate, Ryan Stiles is not breaking even. He bought a 5-bedroom Encino home in 2003 for $3.45 million under a trust held by celeb business manager Bruce Lagnese. After first listing the property in 2010, the “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” comedian just sold it for $3.1 million.

Built in 1976, the Rancho Estates home features rich oak hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings. Other notable features include a wet bar in a large eat-in kitchen, 6.5 baths, a media-screening room, and pool and barbecue area for outdoor entertaining.

Stiles’ career as an actor and comedian took off in the U.S. when he successfully lobbied to get an American version of “Whose Line?” produced on ABC in the ’90s. He went on to play Lewis Kiniski on “The Drew Carey Show” and a recurring role as Dr. Herb Melnick on “Two and a Half Men.”

A Seattle native, Stiles also owns a home in Bellingham, WA that he purchased in 1999. Listing agent Lynde Leonard of Coldwell Banker-Beverly Hills South handled the sale of his Encino property.
