Ralphie May makes several appearances at this year’s festival. On Friday, May 16th and Saturday, May 17th he’ll perform his solo stand-up act at Zanies Nashville.
On Wednesday, May 14th, Ralphie will join fellow comedians Ron White, Ralphie May, Kathleen Madigan, James Gregory and Killer Beaz in “Friends of Tim: A Comedic Celebration of the Life of Tim Wilson.” The night of comedy will celebrate the life of Tim Wilson, a Nashville resident comedian who passed away on February 26th. Tim was well loved both by Nashville locals and fans across the country. All proceeds from the show will benefit the Tim Wilson Memorial Fund.
Voted one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch,” Ralphie May just released his record-setting fourth one-hour special for Comedy Central, proving that his relatable comedic genius is in higher demand than ever. “Too Big To Ignore” was filmed at the beautiful Pabst Theatre in Milwaukee and premiered to impressive ratings and is now available on DVD. Ralphie has a no-nonsense point of view and the ability to connect with a diverse audience by pointing out society’s hypocrisies. Ralphie doesn’t shy away from touchy topics or ethnic jokes, nor does he bite his tongue when society suggests, because he sincerely believes that as long as what he’s saying is true, people need to hear it. When he’s not on the road, Ralphie divides his time between Nashville and Los Angeles. Since establishing a residence in Nashville, he has been actively involved with the 100 Club of Nashville, various youth organizations and the Humane Society.
