Ron Funches knows he’s a giggly teddy bear, but how much do you know about Ron Funches?
Since moving from Portland, Ore., to Los Angeles, Funches has found success as a writer, actor and stand-up comedian, with roles on Comedy Central’s Kroll Show, IFC’s Portlandia, and now as Shelly — one of the seemingly undateable regulars on the sitcom Undateable, which starts its third season in the fall of 2015 with a full slate of live primetime episodes on NBC. Funches recently shaved his beard to play a prostitute in a scene for Bruce Willis’s upcoming movie, Going Under. He tells me all about that, and more, in his journey toward Hollywood success and staying happy with where he’s at as a single father trying to make it in show business.
