Major Activities Board

Bringing entertainment to the University of Chicago since 1980

The Major Activities Board is proud to present this year's Winter Comedy Show, featuring Chicago’s own Ron Funches!

Ron Funches is a film and television actor, writer, and stand-up comedian, currently starring on the NBC sitcom Undateable, playing the role of oddball neighbor Shelly. Funches has also appeared on Comedy Central’s improv game show @midnight, and holds the record for most wins in the show’s history. 

Most recently, Ron has performed stand-up on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Conan, in addition to filming the 2015 comedy Get Hard alongside Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. Funches has also written for several TV shows including Bob’s Burgers, New Girl, Enlisted, Drunk History, and Portlandia. Ron’s stand-up has garnered high praise from multiple publications, including The New York Times, with his signature slow delivery receiving the most critical attention. After performing at UChicago, Funches will join the national Oddball Festival Tour. 

Supporting Ron will be student opener Peter Moller of Off-Off Campus!
