Following is an excerpt from Ronnie Jordan’s biography on his website:

From the very start, funny man Ronnie Jordan has proven that he’s a comedy force. After only one year on the comedy scene, the kid voted “wittiest” in high school was crowned “Rookie of the Year” in 2001 by the famed Uptown Comedy Corner in Atlanta, Ga.

As one of the country’s hottest up and coming comedians, Jordan is quickly making a name for himself as a comic’s comic who has shared concert dates with such stand-up heavyweights as Rickey Smiley, Bruce Bruce, Earthquake, Mike Epps, Arnez J. and Dave Chappelle.

Jordan became the crowd favorite on the Miller Lite King and Queens of Comedy Search Tour and served as an opening act on the Queens of Comedy 12-city tour which featured famed female comedians Sommore, Monique and Adelle Givens.

Last spring, Jordan broke college touring records by touring 102 colleges in 112 days. He also broke booking records his first year with Auburn Moon Agency.

Minnesota State Mankato, a comprehensive university with 15,409 students, is part of the Minnesota State Colleges & Universities system, which comprises 31 state institutions.
