Fresh off a brand new Comedy Central special, Ralphie May comes to Jefferson Center for his TOO BIG TO IGNORE TOUR!

Ralphie May was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, but raised in Clarksville, Arkansas. When he was seventeen years old, he won a contest to open for comedian Sam Kinison, whom he considered his idol. Kinison suggested he move to Houston, Texas to further develop his comedy routine. May studied performing arts in Houston and then moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment.

In 2003, May was chosen to participate in the first season of Last Comic Standing. He finished in second place in the competition, with Dat Phan winning first place. After that, he started appearing in numerous comedy shows like The Wayne Brady Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

In 2005, May released his comedy album, Just Correct. Since then, he has recorded four Comedy Central specials: Girth of a Nation (2006), Prime Cut (2007), Austin-tatious (2008), and most recently Too Big To Ignore (2012).
