About Ramon Rivas
Ramon Rivas is a stand up comedian and eminent latino from Cleveland, OH. The Improv has watched him grow from a young, raw performer asking for guest sets to hosting for some of our favorite comics like Ricky Smiley, Michael Colyar, Lil Rel Howery, Guy Torry, Godfrey & more.
In addition to performing, Ramon has been featured on the HBO mini-series, "Man in a Box", YKWD with Robert Kelly & tour video, PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER with Cameron Esposito, The K-Ohle Podcast with Kurt Braunohler, Doug Benson's DOUG LOVES MOVIES and more. Ramon's positive vibes and chill comedic momentum earned him a coveted spot as a performer in San Francisco SketchFest (2014) in the inaugural Chicago Comedy Exposition (2014). In 2015, Ramon was invited to take part in the inaugural NBCUniversal & Second City Breakout Comedy Fest and selected by Comedy Central as a COMIC TO WATCH for the New York Comedy Festival.
As the founder of the Accidental Comedy Fest (August 26-28) and curator of AccidentalComedy.com, Ramon helped bring indie, DIY comedy shows to a new generation of Cleveland comics thru producing open mics, showcases, and professional shows featuring top, headlining acts like Hannibal Buress, Kyle Kinane, and The Lucas Brothers at some of the best venues the greater Cleveland area has to offer. His work and the overall growth of the Cleveland scene was featured in the documentary film MAKE FUN (2013).
With a fine taste in jokes, juices and dope-ass sandwiches, Ramon is quickly making a name for himself and is an excellent addition to any lineup. The Cleveland Improv is excited to give Ramon the opportunity to be the main event comic on Wednesday, May 25.
