Special Guest Ron Swallow
When Ron Swallow was faced with the prospect of a talent show at the age of 16, Ron felt he had no talent. Someone pointed out to him that he was funny and maybe he should try standup. Ron wrote jokes about fluffy toilet seat covers and GI Joe, and the rest is history. Having lived the life of a nerd with a strange name has allowed him to observe his surroundings in a unique and fun way. From making fun of his name to his opinions on annoying common sayings, Ron will always keep the people laughing. Audiences will enjoy Ron´s ability to take his geekdom and make you relate to it. With Ron Swallow, one thing is for sure: hilarity will ensue. Ron Swallow is a regular at the Improv in Hollywood, and has been on Ugly Betty and MADtv.

He has been described as fearlessly dynamic, highly original, thought-provoking, and completely hilarious. CraveOnline describes his comedy as “all-at-once intelligent and approachable, egalitarian and niche.” Adding, “Ed stands out in his delivery, which borrows equally from the college professor and the street preacher.” The USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism says that “his presence is one that captivates the room.” Ed hasn't met a crowd he didn't enjoy… or want to destroy.
