Ron Funches Cancels Portland Show... Because He Got a Pilot!

Posted by Alison Hallett on Mon, Mar 25, 2013 at 10:14 AM


Former Oregon comic/"human storm of delight" Ron Funches has been killing it since moving to LA, at least according to all the "comics to watch" lists he keeps cropping up on.

Now, from Deadline Hollywood:

Actor-comedian Ron Funches (Disney XD’s Crash & Bernstein) has been added to the NBC/WBTV comedy pilot Undateable, about a group of date-challenged friends whose lives are forever altered when a more confident character (Chris D’Elia) enters their world. Funches, repped by APA, Truhett Garcia Management and attorney Lev Ginsburg, plays Shelly, an odd, shy musician member of the group whose appeal to women comes to life when he’s performing.

The bad news for Portland is that Funches canceled his Portland date this week at Mississippi Studios, and he's not coming to Bridgetown, so no word on when Portland will get another chance to see him. The good news is... he's a super talented comedian who deserves the success he's got coming to him. Congrats, Funches! We knew you when.
