Ron Shock
The Great American Storyteller.



Ron Shock is the world’s greatest storyteller and one of the few true living legends in comedy, Ron has seen it all. He is one of the founding members of the famous Houston Outlaws which included Ron’s long time friends, Bill Hicks, Steve Epstein, Riley Barber and Andy Huggins.


Ron Shock began doing comedy at age 40 after already having lived a full life which included being a professional jewel thief for the New Orleans mob. After given the option of jail or the military, Ron joined the military and came out with the ability to work with explosives, which led to his next career...safe cracker. He was very successful until one day...he wasn’t. He was imprisoned in LA County Jail from which he escaped...only to be caught again within minutes of breathing free air.

When leaving the maximum security prison, the guard told him that he’d be back and Ron said "No, I won’t."

Ron went on to become the Vice President of a Fortune 500 company called McMillan Publishing. He eventually resigned and moved onto other publishing companies but he felt the corporate world was more crooked than his life as a criminal.

One day at age 40 he just decided to walk away and told his friends that he was going to become a comedian...that was where Ron got the first laugh of his comedy career but Ron remained adament, promised them he’d never come back and that they would one day see him on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson...a goal that Ron finally achieved being THE LAST new comedian to get their break on that show. He is also the ONLY COMIC, to our understanding, in the history of The Tonight Show that had enough faith from the producers that he didn't have to have his set pre-approved before going live on the air!

From his first road gig with a young Bill Hicks and Bill Silva in an outlaw titty bar which almost led to the comedians’ deaths until headlining the Las Vegas Strip on his 65th birthday, Ron’s comedy has continued to progress as people continue to call him the world’s greatest storyteller and all the stories remain as timeless as the man himself.
