Alright! Time to kill another hour with a super duper awesome possum comedy podcast!
Today’s podcast features our wonderful conversation with Ron Babcock. Now a Los Angeles comic, Ron got his start here in the Valley, first producing the Modest Proposal comedy interview magazine before finally taking the leap into stand-up with his creative partner, Ryan McKee.
Starting as a duo enabled Ron & Ryan a bit of creative freedom that most solo performers do not frequently get; an onstage safety net that allowed for more risks to be cavalierly taken, more possibilities to indulge, more ideas to be explored more fully. That ability to explore the bizarre has carried over into Ron’s solo career, from his unpredictably silly onstage persona to his incredibly funny Concocted Conversations blog, Ron has so many facets of weirdness compromising a greater whole.
We hope we’ve captured a fairly complete picture of Ron in this fun conversation. There was a lot of laughing together along with a good amount of advice on patience and development for any performers that want to know where the next opportunity is waiting for them.
Upcoming shows for us: Steve Marek will be at Hidden House on 7/18.
