Ron G, known as one of the hottest upcoming comedians in LA, will open for Seth Meyers when he performs at Ithaca College on April 12.

Ron G was a finalist on Last Comic Standing and named the 2010 College Comic of the Year. He is also a 2013 recipient of a one-year talent holding deal with NBCUniversal.

About Ron G:

This former class clown decided it was time to graduate from the classroom and take his act to the world's stage.

Ron G who describes his comedy as “high energy and clever with an urban flare,” graduated with a dual degree in finance and management from the University of South Carolina. He quickly decided he didn’t fit into the corporate world, and at his cousin’s urging got up on stage for the first time in Atlanta, GA and got booed severely. He calls that “the best and worst day of my life – the day I fell in love with comedy.”

Upon moving to Los Angeles to further his comedic and acting career, he became a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes and received the prestigious title “College Comic of the Year” award in 2010. With his star rising Ron is regularly seen on Vh1’s Talking Heads Shows, as a commentator for BET’s Don’t Sleep, and will soon grace the big screen as leading man in the new family comedy, Margarine Wars opposite the legendary actors Doris Roberts and Robert Loggia.

Ron G says, "I want to represent the new generation of comedians that get overlooked. I'd like to show the world the new generation is just as funny, clever, and talented.
