Staff Pick: Stephen Rannazzisi at the Funny Bone

By
From the March 15, 2012 edition

Those of you who watch (and love) “The League” recognize Stephen Rannazzisi as Kevin, the character who once suffered from a “fear boner” and got maliciously stalked by the nefarious Bobbum Man. But Rannazzisi’s comedic chops go beyond Kevin’s constant humiliation. Much of the dialogue on “The League” is ad-lib conversations, jokes and mockery, and Rannazzisi more than holds his own with a cast that includes Paul Scheer, Jon Lajoie and Nick Kroll. He’s even funnier on stage. Rannazzisi mixes sarcasm with a friendly bro vibe that comes across as a snarky, yet approachable brand of stand-up.
