Ron Lynch
"Ron shows us what comedy can be and the true artistry behind just entertaining a bunch of strangers.
One of the most original and jaw-droppingly funny comedic voices of our generation." -- The Comedy Bureau

RON LYNCH has been performing comedy for over three decades and is considered one of the forefathers of alternative comedy. Ron was part of the Boston comedy scene that spawned such comics as Steven Wright, Paula Poundstone, Bobcat Goldthwait, Marc Maron, and others featured in the documentary, "When Comedy Was King." Ron studied theater in New York, and improvisation at Second City Chicago. His credits include Portlandia, Another Period, The Sarah Silverman Program (he played all the doctors), Conan, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, and several sitcom appearances. His voice can be heard as recurring characters on Bob's Burgers, Adventure Time, Word Girl, Dr. Katz, Tim and Eric, and the cult favorite, Home Movies, where he was Mr. Lynch. Movie credits include Smashed, several independents, and many short movies, including a few produced with Louie CK (who recently thanked Ron on the Emmy's) . Presently, he is the host/producer of the popular "Tomorrow!" variety show in Hollywood, now in its eleventh year. He plays drums in two bands, both mostly comics, still hasn't done his taxes, and recently performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.
