Francis Ronald “Rahn” Ramey

Rahn Ramey (1976) originally had aspirations to practice law. He went so far as to earn a law degree before finding his real calling in life. Rahn found that his most rewarding work would be on a stage rather than in a courtroom.

He made his professional stand- up comedian debut as the opening act for Smokey Robinson at the Fox Theatre and went on to open for  Al Jarreau, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, B.B. King and Randy Travis in an almost thirty year career that took him to venues from Las Vegas to London and Dubai.

Ramey was a triple threat in that he also acted in movies such as “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles,” ”Escape from New York” and “Green Lantern” and was a writer for the” Drew Carey Show “ and “Friends.”

He appeared on the “Jay Leno Show,””An Evening at the Improv,””HBO’s Comedy Relief,””Showtime Comedy Club” and on the Comedy Club Circuit.

Rahn Ramey died  on June 9, 2013 in New Orleans at the age of 56.
