Standup comedians typically draw from real life, such as bad relationships or how the zoo is crazy. Life’s a riot with this GrouponLive deal to see Ralphie May at McMorran Place Sports and Entertainment Center. For $18, you get one G-Pass for rear-balcony seating on Thursday, March 21, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $36.15 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Because these tickets are G-Passes, Groupon customers can use them to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
From the moment Ralphie May walks onto the stage, he demands attention with his 400-pound frame and incongruously high-pitched voice. His Southern drawl and babyish looks, coupled with his witty lancings of society’s absurdities, won him second place in NBC’s Last Comic Standing. The victory launched him into the comedy stratosphere, where he starred in several Comedy Central specials and DVDs, including Prime Cut, in which he pokes fun at the adorably awful hairstyles popular in his native Dixie. This past March, during his Too Big to Ignore special, Ralphie mused on the unforeseen perks of resembling a famous transgender celebrity, leaving audiences as delighted as a clown who finally saved up enough to buy his own personal limousine.
