Biography

RAMON RIVAS is a stand up comedian and eminent latino from Cleveland, OH. Resonating a low-fi swag with a fine taste in jokes, juices and dope sandwiches, Ramon made a name for himself by spending time in Chicago, New York & Los Angeles while building up the independent comedy scene in Cleveland through his ACCIDENTAL COMEDY shows, performing as often as possible for a gently employed stoner. In 2016, he recorded his television debut, an episode on the newest season of THE HALF HOUR with COMEDY CENTRAL. Rivas was one of 17 artists selected, an outlier from the middle of the country, an independent artist with no manager or agent. Ramon has appeared on @MIDNIGHT (winning July 21), MTV Decoded, VICELAND & more. He also joined the management team at BRILLSTEIN ENTERTAINMENT.

As the founder of the Accidental Comedy Fest (Est 2011) and curator of Accidental Comedy Club, Ramon brought indie, DIY comedy shows to a new generation of Cleveland artists & audiences by producing open mics, showcases, and professional shows featuring emerging local & regional talent paired with 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). ACCIDENTAL was named BEST COMEDY VENUE by Cleveland Scene Magazine in 2016, even though the group has no physical home. So they had to add (SERIES) in parenthesis. It's some real pied-piper shit, which is dope.

Ramon now lives in Los Angeles, returning home frequently to feel happiness. ACCIDENTAL COMEDY functions year round, helmed by the next generation of Cleveland's comedic ambassadors. You can catch Ramon performing in the greater Los Angeles area regularly, touring the country or highly chatting with people on the streets.
