This is a pocket sized episode of Punched Up. This is a small chunk of a conversation that didn’t make it into the full episode with Ramon Rivas II. We talked about how performing stand up has changed since Donald Trump took office. This was recorded right after he was elected, a lot has changed but I felt like this was still an important conversation to be heard. To hear Ramon’s full episode, check out ‘Cleveland Rocks.’ We discuss police brutality in the city of Cleveland and the...

“I dunno what you’re going to call this, but we’re going to talk about how I became the monster I am today… which is just another name for ‘comedian’.” is how Lace started our conversation. Lace Larrabee grew up like a lot of comedians do. Playing dress up in their mother’s clothes and charging relatives for tickets to an exclusive living room performance.

So she had to start over in a city she’d never been to and in a...

The good, the bad… Everything.” We explore what that means for the city he so proudly represents on the world stage; The city of Cleveland, Ohio. Cleveland has actually been nicknamed ‘The Comeback City’ because It’s been through many stages of rebuilding dating all the way back to the Great Depression. And there is no one better to talk to about Cleveland other than, Ramon. He is the ambassador of...

“STRIPPED” Julain Fernadez was eighteen years old. Very shy and had never been to a strip club. So he calls the strip club down the street to inquire, “How it all works.” Julian grew overweight and painfully shy. Two things I can directly relate to. Julian didn’t really come out of his shell until after he found stage performance late in life. So he was kind of a loner. He never really belonged to any set of friends in high school. He was bad at talking to girls and never ha [...]
