Keeping the pain in the heart and making the people laugh at the same time is not an easy job.

Comedy has not just become an essential part of his identity but also has helped him to cope with the pains and struggles of life.

Ron's Profesional Journey

Ron got interested in comedy right from his childhood. In his early days, humor used to be his weapon to save himself and his sister from his mother's scolding. Whenever his mother laughed at his jokes, he used to think that he was good at making people laugh.

Ron was not a full-time comedian at the prior stage of his career. He was engaged in different jobs before giving his full time for comedy. At first, he did his job at a bank call center. He also worked for Liberty Tax Services as a Lady Liberty, dancing around with a sign, which also helped him to pave the way for the career in comedy.

Ron's career as a full-time comedian got started at his age of 23 in Portland, Oregon. In 2012, he moved to Los Angeles from Portland to make a career in comedy. One of his first acting credits is an episode of 'Portlandia' (2011).

Ron has also written many episodes of Comedy Central's 'Kroll Show' and even 'The Eric Andre Show,' 'Funny or Die's Night Night.' He is also a roundtable guest on 'Chelsea Lately.'

New Show During Pandemic

Ron came up with a new game show named Nice One! that premiered on August 24 on Quibi. In the front, the host, Ron, challenges other comedians to say nice about some bad things. Comedians Chris Hardwick, Jen Kirkman, and Riki Lindhome were the first to make jokes and offer kindness to several less than desirable topics. To stick around in the competition, they have to find something enjoyable to say about bitcoin, crummy commercials, and man buns.

They will also compete in a Nice Off, where the two comedians will go head-to-head saying enjoyable things, stand-up style. 

Ron's Married Life
