America’s Funny Man Ron G Performs Nov. 3 at Penn State York

10/28/2010 —

Penn State York’s Cultural and Performing Artists series continues with America’s funny man Ron G on Thursday, Nov. 3, at the campus’ Pullo Family Performing Arts Center. The free performance gets under way at 7 p.m. and is sponsored by the campus and MediaOnePA. No tickets are needed for this show.

Ron G is blazing a trail as one of the hottest upcoming comedians in Los Angeles. The former class clown decided it was time to graduate from the classroom and take his act to the world's stage. Ron G describes himself as high energy and clever with an urban flare. He graduated with a dual degree in finance and management from the University of South Carolina but quickly decided he didn’t fit in the corporate world. Thanks to the urging of his cousin, Ron G stepped on the stage for the first time in Atlanta, Georgia, and was severely booed. He fell in love with comedy that day and has been performing since then at clubs, colleges, churches, and corporate events across the country entertaining people while staying true to his commitment of clean humor. His performance presents down to earth humor and funny characters.

After moving to Los Angeles, he was a finalist on the new hit television show Bill Bellamy’s “Who’s Got Jokes” and as one of the finalists in the most recent season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” The highlight of his career thus far is when comedian Martin Lawrence told him he was funny.
