Yes, Ralphie May is a hilarious comedian. Yes, he's also a "Last Comic Standing" superstar. And yes, he's perhaps just a little bit rotund. But did you know that he also performed at the Gathering of the Juggalos this past year?! OK, maybe that last factoid is the least impressive on a Ralphie May fact sheet. (Or maybe it's the most impressive. I don't know you. I don't know your life.) But what really matters, I think we'd all agree, are the laughs. The big, hearty, full-bodied laughs. With a swell guy like Ralphie, you can reasonably expect to have laughs delivered by the bucketful. I won't go for a cheap KFC extra crispy bucket joke here, but I will say this: as the mic-master of no less than four hour-long Comedy Central specials, May always comes out swinging like a champ. Oh yes; rest assured that he's worth his weight in comedy gold – valuable down to the very last pound. And this is probably something even Juggalos and us normies alike can bond over together.
