Ralphie May will be performing at the Harrahs in Vegas, with no subject off limit, he says that this show will reveal the sidesplitting quirks, touching everything from politics to race to family life specially curated for Las Vegas audience. He says that this show will just be crazy, with a hilarious mix of stories and events. All dirty, mocking, irrelevant, but loveable comedy you’ve never seen before. Outrageous but lovable, Raphie May has turned to be one of the most famous comedians in America right now, primarily because of his ability to connect with the diverse audience as he lays out some of the society’s hypocrisies to light.
Those who love “Last Comic Standing” remembers him as the second place finisher on this TV show, with most of the fans loving his over the top persona; however, his comedy career did not just start here. Ralphie May began to get laughs from different age group when he was only 17 years old. He was only 16 years old when he had a terrible accident that ballooned him to over 800 pounds. His first break in comedy began when he won the contest opening for San Kinison in Arkansan where he lived at the time. He was actually very nervous at the time, understandably being a teen, but his debut was so impressive the Kinison told him to move to Houston to develop the routine. Houston was more a comedy mecca by then with more clubs and thriving competitive scenes. May was, therefore, able to work all the time, which apparently landed him a radio gig which in many ways contributed to his popularity. Since, then, he has done nothing less than pursuing his career, which has turned to be a successful one.
For almost 25 years now, Raphie May has appeared on some of the biggest venues in the U.S, has slain hundreds of thousands of late night audience, recorded specials for a comedy-loving network on TV, and so far has reached the level of popularity in the U.S very few comedian have attained. He has starred in four Comedy Central specials, several Netflix specials, and on famous Episode of “Inside Army Schumer”. He has also toured throughout the country with his standup acts and across the world for USO.
You can argue that May is just among the luckiest, probably because of his fascinating career, but you will be surprised to know that he fell in love with comedy when he was just 13 years old after performing in a church, which is ironic because he is the dirtiest comedian you will come across. The raw and uncensored hallmarks of his mentor are evident in Mays set. He doesn’t just deal with mere outrage; rather he is able to balance the boyish charms, sarcastic self-analysis, and comparison of anyone, with the dirtiest, witty and probably the most honest observation you probably haven’t even thought about.
