Comedian Ralphie May goes ‘Austin-Tatious’ on Mr. Media’s you-know-what

Since his debut on season one of “Last Comic Standing,” audiences can’t get enough of larger than life comedian Ralphie May. His new DVD and 90-minute special for Comedy Central was shot in his home state of Texas to a sold-out crowd. Recorded live at the Paramount Theater, the new release titled Austin-Tatious is the first recording since the birth of his daughter, April June May. This marks his fourth recording in just a few short years, which has raised attention among Hollywood industry execs and led to Variety naming him one of “10 Comics to Watch” in 2008.

His previous special, “Ralphie May: Prime Cut” premiered on Comedy Central in November 2007 to higher ratings than Larry the Cable Guy or Ron White during Comedy Central’s “Blue Collar Weekend” and continues to be played in rotation.

Known for his hip-hop brand of comedy, Ralphie has his ebonics and quick wit down pat, which has earned him roles in such urban films as “For Da Love Of Money” and “Gas.” He was also the only white comedian to perform on “The Big Black Comedy Show,” along with Mo’Nique, Rodman, Sexy Marie and Vince Morris.

Ralphie has a proven track record of selling out multiple shows in 1,500 to 3,000 seat venues. He 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.
