Originally from the Midwest, Ralphie Hardesty is a stand up comedian from Austin, TX. Hardesty has been producing and hosting comedy and variety shows in Austin for years, including the long-running Encyclopedia Show Austin and the GLBTQ storytelling show, Greetings from Queer Mountain, which has been educating and weirding out unsuspecting heterosexual Texans at Cheer Up Charlie’s for 60 consecutive months.

Ralphie has appeared on many festivals around the country, including previous Moontowers, Bridgetown, and many others. He has appeared on PBS and Ovation (which is or was a TV station once, I swear), and you can regularly see him as a cast member of the long-running Austin staple, Master Pancake Comedy. His dogs are extremely cute and heavily featured on his Instagram.
