Comedian Ronnie Jordan is a big man doing big things. A native of southwest Atlanta, Jordan has been a hot comedy commodity since he first took the stage in 2001, being named Uptown Comedy Corner's "Rookie of the Year." He then went on to win the Miller Lite "Kings and Queens of Comedy Search Tour" in 2003. His flame of fame is still burning bright as he is currently one of the most booked comedians on the college circuit; he even broke a college-touring record for his agency last year by performing at 105 colleges in 112 days. When he's not headlining a university, you can see Jordan performing as a regular headliner at Atlanta's Uptown Comedy Corner... or you could just turn on the TV and see him, with a list of impressive credits including BET's "Comic View," Starz' "Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment Stand Up," and HBO's "P. Diddy Presents Bad Boys of Comedy."

Comedian since: Aug. 4, 2001

GA Connection: Born and raised in Atlanta, graduated from Lovejoy High School in '98, currently lives in Athens, GA.

A lil' joke: "If male enhancement drugs really worked, ladies would be spiking guys' drinks constantly."

Aug. 24 - Armstrong Atlantic State University, Savannah, GA
Aug. 25 - Darton College, Albany, GA
Aug. 26 - College of Coastal Georgia, Brunswick, GA
