Ron G, the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities’ 2010 College Comic of the Year, will perform at 1 p.m. on November 10 in room 135 at the campus in Center Valley.

 

Ron G, who describes his comedy as "high energy and clever with an urban flare," graduated with a dual degree in finance and management from the University of South Carolina. But he quickly decided he didn't fit into the corporate world, and at his cousin's urging got up on stage for the first time in Atlanta, Ga., and got booed severely. He calls that "the best and worst day of my life - the day I fell in love with comedy." He has been performing ever since at clubs, colleges, churches, and corporate events across the country, entertaining people while staying true to his commitment to clean humor. His performance presents down to earth humor and funny characters.

Ron G began his stand up career in Atlanta, GA, and was crowned 1st place winner of the 2005 Sierra Mist Late Night Laff Off.  After moving to Los Angeles to further his career as a comedian and actor, he was a finalist on the hit TV show Bill Bellamy's "Who's Got Jokes" and was also a finalist on the most recent season of NBC's Last Comic Standing. On his very first commercial audition, he booked a gig as national Spokesperson for Checker's & Rally's Restaurants.  Having Martin Lawrence tell him he was funny is one of Ron G's career highlights so far, and after receiving his first standing ovation only eight months in the game, he knew he had found his calling.

Ron G says, "I want to represent the new generation of comedians that get overlooked. I'd like to show the world the new generation is just as funny, clever, and talented.
