Richard "Richie" Tozier is a member of The Losers Club in Stephen King's IT. He is the comedian of the group and likes to disguise his voice. As an adult, he is a stand-up comedian in the TV miniseries and a radio personality in the original book, who is particularly known for his voices and impressions. He is more reluctant than the others to face IT again. He eventually helps the remaining Losers kill It once and for all.
In the 1990 miniseries in his younger self, he is portrayed by Seth Green who also portrayed Chris Griffin, Patrick Wisely in Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, Monty Monogram in Phineas and Ferb, Leonardo in 2012's TMNT Jeff "Joker" Moreau in the Mass Effect series, and his adult self was played by the late Harry Anderson.
In the 2017 film, his younger self is portrayed by Finn Wolfhard, who also portrayed Mike Wheeler. His adult self is portrayed by Bill Hader in It: Chapter Two, who voiced Firewater in Sausage Party, Flint Lockwood in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Fear in Inside Out, and Alpha in Power Rangers (2017).
Richard "Richie" Tozier is the son of Wentworth and Maggie Tozier, and was born in 1945 in the novel, 1947 in the miniseries, and on March 7, 1976 in the 2017 adaptation. Despite the events of the novel, Richie had a great upbringing with his family, as he was close with his father. Wentworth was greatly fond of his son, as he happily indulged with doing voices like his son, as his mother wanted to understand Richie better.
In his childhood, he was friends with Bill Denbrough, Stan Uris, and Eddie Kasbrack, and would later befriend Ben Hanscom, Beverly Marsh, and Mike Hanlon. He was nicknamed "Bucky Beaver" by the school, as he had big front teeth, and hated wearing thick glasses, but found comfort in his idol, Buddy Holly. He was also nicknamed "Trashmouth", as he was foul-mouthed and loud, as he accidently insulted Henry Bowers and his gang. In the novel, it's assumed that he has ADHD, as it's stated that doesn't have much control of what he says or does. After It was defeated by the Losers, they left the sewers with Eddie being dead when he was killed by It. This caused Richie to be distraught as he refused to leave his lover behind. The Losers successfully escaped the sewers, and Richie later returns to the Kissing Bridge to carve the word R+E in honor Eddie before leaving Derry. Richie understood that Eddie already knew that.
