Ron Funches on Cute Butts, His Favorite Comic Books, and Being Nice to People

It must be hard to hold a grudge against Ron Funches.

Scratch that. We'd imagine it's downright impossible. Thanks to the stand-up comedian's infectious giggle and his laidback delivery, Funches is as warm in his demeanor as he is in his career. As he puts it, he's "like a big stuffed bear."

For almost nine years, the Portland native has been generating a following through his stand-up, appearing on programs like The Conan O'Brian Show, Chelsea Lately, and @midnight, while seizing smaller reoccurring roles on Fox's New Girl, and Comedy Central's Kroll Show (may it rest in peace).
