Riki was raised in Portville, New York., and after matriculating enrolled at Syracuse University, and while there, became a part of the comedy sketch group, Syracuse Live. She obtained her degree in 2000, and then started pursuing an acting career.
She didn’t have an agent in her early career days, and all she could grab were minor roles such as in the TV series “Titus” in 2002, and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” the same year. Two years later she was cast in the role of Mardell Fitzgerald in the sports drama “Million Dollar Baby”, directed by Clint Eastwood. Thanks to the success of the film, Riki was heard about around Hollywood, which resulted in new acting engagements.

The following year she portrayed Sadie in the horror “Last House on the Left”, which also increased her net worth.
Going into the present decade, Riki continued with her film roles, but also tried to make a name as a television star; as a result, she wrote, directed, and produced the TV comedy series “Garfunkel and Oates” (2014), which encompasses her musical ventures with Kate Micucci, and she also created the TV comedy series “Another Period” (2015-2017), in which she stars as Beatrice Bellacourt, one of the Bellacourt sisters, next to Natasha Leggero, who is also credited as co-creator. Most recently, Riki voiced Poison Ivy in the animated action adventure “The Lego Batman Movie” (2017).
To speak of her musical endeavors, aside from starting Garfunkel and Oats and releasing several musical videos for satirical songs the two recorded, Riki has also released the EP “Yell At Me From Your Car” in 2011, the sales of which also added to her wealth.
