Being a comedian is hard. It takes a special person to get on stage and unload their opinions and observations in the hopes an audience will give them the one thing they want most: laughter.
Tennessee-born, Arkansas-raised comic Ralphie May laughs in the face of difficulty, and his audiences laugh right along with him as he delivers joke after joke about sex, race, religion, drugs—little is off limits. May has built a loyal fanbase since starting his career in 1989, placing second in the first season of Last Comic Standing, appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and recording four comedy specials. The big comedian with the even bigger jokes is currently on tour and, with opener Matt Rife, bringing his X-rated, X-tra funny act to the Knitting Factory on Sunday, Nov. 15.
