Ralphie May to Perform at Klein Memorial Auditorium, 10/10
Voted one of Variety's "10 Comics to Watch," Ralphie May recently released his record-setting fourth one-hour special for Comedy Central titled "Too Big To Ignore," proving that his relatable comedic genius is in higher demand than ever.
Since his debut on season one of "Last Comic Standing," audiences can't get enough of the larger than life comedian. Ralphie has a proven track record of selling out multiple shows in 1,500 to 3,000 seat venues and is looking forward to his first Fairfield County Connecticut appearance. He has a no nonsense point of view and the ability to connect with a diverse audience by pointing out society's hypocrisies. Ralphie doesn't shy away from touchy topics or ethnic jokes, nor does he bite his tongue when society suggests, because he sincerely believes that as long as what he's saying is true, people need to hear it.
Born on February 17, 1972 in Chattanooga, Tennessee and raised in Clarksville, Arkansas, Ralphie was one of four kids raised by his single mom. At the age of seventeen he won a contest to open for his idol, Sam Kinison. He later moved to Houston to develop his comedy routine, at Kinison's suggestion. "All the comics I've ever admired, whether it be Kinison, Lenny Bruce, Buddy Hackett or Richard Pryor, all share a commonality," says May. "They're a tour de force. When they speak, there's no room for rebuttal. They've thought it all out. Even the pros and cons of their argument, they raise openly and debate in the midst of their conversation and it's a beautiful thing to watch."
