Chicago Says Goodbye to Comedian Dan Ronan (also discussed...2 of my other favorite comedians: Ryan Willis and Donald Trump)

When I was reading the morning newspaper the other day, an unlikely headline grabbed my attention.  A young comedian from the area had passed away.  (SEE:  Dan Ronan, Chicago comedian, dies at 24

Sadly, I had not heard of Dan until his tragic passing.  Being the investigative reporter I am, I wanted to know more about him, so I immediately started researching...  and this guy was brillliant!   WHY hadn't I heard of him??




"If you don't know who this is... And know who this is.  Congratulations!  You're what's wrong with the world." (new Doge version)




His comedic skills far surpassed those of many famous comedians.  A young man loaded with talent, thankfully some of his performances are preserved on the vastness of the internets.



Here is a brief snippit just to give you an idea from a skit known as "You Can't Watch Wayne's World"...

We will get back to talking about Dan shortly,  but first I want to back flop into discussing a new comic talent on the scene...

I discovered a funny guy named Ryan Willis thanks to @em1lysouthworth's twitter account.  Anywho, without further ado let's get a taste of Ryan in action on Vine...

And now shall we close with a new segment called:




The Donald Trump Quote of the Week


Donald Trump Quote of the Week:  "TOO MANY PEOPLE DON'T CARE ABOUT WINNING TODAY...  I CALL THEM LOSERS."


Yeah.  We won't be ending this post with the Donald Trump Quote of the Week.  That would be stupid.  Besides, I promised you more Dan Ronan.


So here ya go.  Dan Ronan doing a character named "Tim Negoda" in a skit called "Skunky Funkybuns"...





R.I.P. Dan Ronan     Goodnight, sweet prince




So that will end our journey today.  Once again thank you, and please remember to support your local zoo.



Stay classy, Chicago!

  2. Damn. It's always sad to hear of someone passing away, but he was really young. It shouldn't really change it much but it does. Plus comedians make the world a better and brighter place. The world is a little more dull without him in it.

    1. Amen Mark. Very eloquently stated as usual.

  3. The Tim Negoda character is great. I wonder if it's based on a real person - he'd have to be amazingly creative to invent such a character from scratch. Tragic that Dan died at the age of 24 - do you know what he died of?

    A talented young comedian dies and Donald Trump survives to remind us what a pompous ass sounds like. The gods are laughing at us.

    1. No, Gorilla, I don't know. None of the obituaries said what he died of. I guess we can help his memory live on though, by telling people about his comedy.

  4. Hey, that was actually pretty good. Usually when people say to me "Check this guy out" or "See this guy", I do it with apprehension, if at all.

    What did that kid with the Pepsi do? Just drank a big glass of it?

    1. He's a rebel. He poured Pepsi Cola into a Coca-Cola glass. He just doesn't give a damn.
