A side-splitting shaman known as the Illuminatus of Comedy and Mr. FunnyBlackman – he is “ranney.” Come bear witness to his latest one man jam, the long awaited comedy event: The Chicken or the Egg.
"Impeccable; he's a master of rhythms, of energy, of vocal dexterity, all artfully employed to compelling effect," says Steve Bennett of The United Kingdom's Comedy Chortle. "The way he uses language is unmatched...he passionately sets out his own world view, simultaneously apocalyptic and uplifting. It's complex, dizzying and cathartic, a universal theory attempting to make sense of all that's going on in the world."
"ranney" has headlined internationally from Dublin's Comedy Cellar and London's The Comedy Store to New York's The Apollo. He was a member of the 2002 Edinburgh Fringe award-winning quintet that performed the smash hit The Bomb-itty of Errors at London's West End). With his provocative show Cufflinks and Jolly Ranchers for Dummies, “ranney” hit the international comedy scene at the 2006 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where he had an electric performance at Talk of the Fest hosted by comedy icon Paul Provenza of Showtime’s The Green Room. A nominee for Best International Poet by London's Farrago Poetry Group, “ranney” has been named Best Actor and nominated for Best Comedian by Tampa Bay's Creative Loafing. "ranney" has mounted six one-man shows in the last decade.
The Chicken or the Egg is “ranney” at his best, a philosophical journey with surrealism, characters and musicality.
For mature audiences.
