From the moment Ralphie May walks onto the stage, he demands attention with his 400-pound frame and incongruously high-pitched voice, juxtaposing quick barbs against lengthy pauses to wittily lance society's absurdities. His Southern drawl and babyish looks won him second place in NBC's Last Comic Standing and launched him into the comedy stratosphere, where he starred in several Comedy Central specials and DVDs, including Prime Cut, in which he pokes fun at the adorably awful hairstyles that are popular in his native Dixie. This past March, during his Too Big to Ignore special, Ralphie mused on the unforeseen perks of resembling a famous transgender celebrity, leaving audiences as delighted as a clown who finally saved up enough to buy his own personal limousine.
