A survival guide! How cats, marriage, rock 'n' roll and pizza helped one LA-based comic manage the contemporary political scene and capitalist ruckus of the USA. Part self-reflection, part manifesto, Balding is Punk Rock shines a bright light on Ron Placone's never ending quest of trying to find his place in the world amidst an empire in decline!
Ron Placone’s never been shy about calling out the absurdity of his country. As a result, in the past 6 years he's played sold-out theaters and clubs from San Francisco to Melbourne, touring everywhere in the US and branching out internationally to Canada and Australia, making friends and, inevitably, a few enemies too. He even picked up an international TV spot for his cat, Lucy (long story).
Ron has been seen on CrossTalk, The Discovery Channel, The Jimmy Dore Show, TMZ, FreeSpeechTV, Redacted Tonight and more. His debut album, “Agnostic Holiday” is in rotation on SiriusXM. He writes the comic, Lucy & Ron. His short-film/pilot, Loner, was released in early 2023, and he is currently in production on his first feature, Left At Wall.
