Ron Feingold has been on stage since age 10. He got his musical theatre start in high school portraying roles like Lazar Wolf in “Fiddler on the Roof,” Moonface Martin in “Anything Goes,” and Curly in the musical “Oklahoma!” Then, at age 17, he began his professional career performing in a melodrama theatre by the name of “Bob Young’s Cabaret” located in beautiful Cascade, Colorado. Ron was on top of the world earning $150 a week performing in the show and doing what he loved most!
Ron then moved on to dinner theatre in the summers during his breaks from college at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. There was a distinct trend that he noticed over the years that all of his roles and jobs were mostly comical. So Ron decided to give Stand-up Comedy a try. A contest called the U.S. College Comedy Competition came to Colorado State and Ron signed up. For a first timer, he placed third and he’s been hooked on laughs ever since!
While a performer in the dinner theatre, Ron was also working on his other passions. He earned his Private Pilot license at the age of 18. Graduating in the top 10% of his class from Colorado State University with a degree in Psychology, Ron received the academic honor of Phi Beta Kappa! In May of 1999, Ron received his Masters Degree in Guidance and Counseling and spent a year as a Guidance Counselor while he worked on his second CD- “Solo Effort.” He also loves water and snow skiing, writing poetry and music, and most of all performing his “Comedy A Cappella” show!
Now Ron has toured the entire United States and has performed in America’s finest Comedy Clubs, Universities, and Theatres. After doing “straight” stand-up for 5 years, he decided to stir things up a little and bring his love for a cappella music to the comedy clubs. August 1st of 1995, at Tommy T’s Comedy Club in San Ramon, California was opening night of the new show and audiences have been laughing and singing with Ron ever since!
Ron’s first album was released in June of 1995 and was called One Man A Cappella Jam! Ron began work on his second album on December 30, 1999 with producer Glenn Longacre. Released on January 26, 2001, Solo Effort takes Ron’s music to a different level. Using contemporary favorites and up-tempo classics to create an a cappella recording that is unique and fun to listen to. See the Solo Effort Page for more information on the new album!
Currently, Ron is a corporate and cruise ship entertainer residing in Florida and also performs at his favorite comedy clubs around the country. Check out the show because you won’t see or hear anything like this anywhere!
