Ray’s comedy touches on his failed relationships, growing up in dive bars and silly observations he finds in our everyday lives.

I booked Ray to headline our fundraiser that was packed with 300 people. They loved him! His energy and honesty on stage is a refreshing break from the joke tellers. The crowd stayed around an hour after the show and just talked about how great the show was. Book Ray while you can still afford him!

Zawodni is a regular performer at the Pittsburgh Improv and the Arcade Comedy Theater.He also performs at colleges across the region including the University of Pittsburgh, California University of Pennsylvania and his alma mater, WVU.
