For 25 years, Ralphie May has appeared at the biggest venues, slayed every late-night audience, recorded a special for every comedy-loving network on television, traveled the world for the USO and reached the level of opportunity few standup comedians have attained.

With a charmed career that’s equal parts sweat equity and choking the life out of every opportunity that came along, he fell in love with comedy after performing at a church conference at age 13. He turned professional at 17 when he opened for Sam Kinison, winning a contest as a dual-enrollment student at the University of Arkansas.

The raw, uncensored hallmarks of his mentor Kinison are evident in May’s set. But May doesn’t deal in simple outrage, building a routine that’s rich, deep and fearless. He’s able to balance boyish charm, withering introspection and compassion for his fellow human beings with some of the dirtiest, most honest observations you’ve ever heard.

Tickets are available at,, the KELOLAND Box Office at the Denny Sanford Premier Center (1201 N West Avenue; Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.) or charge by phone at (800) 745-3000.
