    Ricky March, Chicago's Funny Man

    in Comedy

    Ricky March or Aric, to the people whom he owes money to, has always been a wise guy (not Soprano style either).When kids watched cartoons, Rick favored Burns and Allen reruns. When the Beatles were taking over America, Rick spun Bill Cosby and Allen Sherman records. A disk jockey in Syracuse, he first introduced the public to his menagerie of accents. He recorded voice over commercials for bug spray and wrote and produced a radio show called The World According to Myron Putchnick. A couple of decades and a lot of laughs later, he’s back on stage. From Zanies to The Improv to colleges and clubs aroung the country, Rick slings his sarcastic barbs and observations on the inane to make fun of everything stupid and everyone too serious about life.




    Mary E, is the creator/producer of ArtSees Productions.
