Intelligent, witty and sardonic, Ron Vaudry is the thinking mans comedian. A satirical genius teetering precariously at the edge of comedy, Vaudry guides audiences through a series of hilarious, yet thought provoking political and social observations. Ron Vaudry, was born 1956, looked around and said, “You can’t be serious!” Never the class clown, but rather making fun of the class clown, Ron found his niche. An uncompromising master in his field of hard hitting social and political satire, Ron’s reputation as a comic’s comic has not detered audiences from enjoying his unique comedic perspective around the world. Hard-boiled New York comedian.
