It's about time. The rest of the country is catching on to something we'd already known here in Portland for a long time: Ron Funches is fucking awesome! Now that three different publications of varying repute have called him "a comic to watch," it's time for us to just accept that 2013 is going to be the Year of Ron Funches. Esquire said so, LA Weekly said so, and even a weird little fan-site called Serial Optimist thinks so.

Yeah, it could mean that as the world gets a little more Funches, we get him a little less around here. But we'll manage. And it couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Seriously. He's, like, the nicest guy you'll ever meet.
