Day Job/Night Job: Mike's Auto Body Estimator Chases Fame as Stand-up Comic

Ron Bello won the first comedy competition he entered, which helped him become more confident and provided the momentum he needed to take it to the next level.

"They had three judges who were big-time, including Ron Vingh, who does all the booking at the Punchline in San Francisco," Bello said. "After my set, the judges critiqued my jokes and gave me some helpful feedback about my stage presence and the quality of my jokes. They said they liked my energy on stage and that my punch lines were strong, so that was definitely a great evening I will never forget."

 

In February, Bello and two other comedians kicked off their "Woke and Broke" tour at the Lucky Penny Theater in Napa with a sold-out show. As he writes more and more jokes and refines his style, he's pleased and anticipating a bright future.

 

"That was a big night because we taped the show so we could use the footage for promotional purposes," he said. "In this industry, you have to always be promoting yourself, which is why I do things like podcasts and radio shows to sell my brand. I have been a guest on a podcast called ‘The Grind’ that's hosted by Hank Hardister, a fellow comic, and on Fridays I often appear on a radio show on KVON (1440 AM) hosted by Barry Martin, which is a lot of fun."

 

Bello is in a good space right now---happy with his job and delighted with the prospect of excelling as a stand-up comic.

 

"I've always wanted to be a comedian, so this is huge, and Mike's Auto Body is an incredible employer and the best job I've ever had," he said.
