Stand-Up Comedian, Ron Placone

Awesome Vegans Influencer Series

Stand-up Comedian and Vegan…oh, yes! It’s true!

Ron Placone just kind of stumbled into veganism. The stand-up comedian, writer for The Jimmy Dore Show, occasional guest on The Young Turks and creator and host of Get Your News on with Ron, dishes with me about how he tripped into veganism, never expecting to like, and has’t looked back.

Going vegan isn’t the only thing we get into. We also talk about our fav Italian dishes, how he curates his news on Get Your News on with Ron, climate change, being vegan on the road, his Net Neutrality passion, working on The Young Turks and his cat, Lucy.

Here’s Ron’s take on climate change. You have to ask yourself: Is climate change funny? Maybe…if you are Ron! How do you get your climate change news?

Expect to be entertained as Ron and I hang out at the comedian’s place in Pasadena on this episode of Awesome Vegans.  For more information, visit To join Ron in the fight for net neutrality go to on June 11.
