Ron Funches

Multiple dates between Aug 20 - Aug 22, various times
Helium Comedy Club Hosford-Abernethy
This is an in-person event
$22 - $30
Comedian/voice actor/ex-Portlander Ron Funches returns to town for this special set at Helium. The man has a way with words and connects with his audience through hilariously relatable material for the modern age. Having lost nearly 150 pounds over the last four years and developed a significantly chic-er wardrobe, Funches is somewhat unrecognizable since his last visit. But if his hilarious Comedy Central special Giggle Fit is any indication, Funches’ lovable personality, distinctive voice, infectious laugh, and insightful perspective remain. JENNI MOORE
