  •  — Raymond the Amish Comic has been performing stand up comedy for the past 21 years and has developed a cult like following, mostly in Pennsylvania. No surprise there.
    He will be performing at the Gravity Inn in Waymart on Aug. 9.
    Most of his fans have seen his show many times and love to bring their friends to see him for their first time.
    Raymond suffers from a preconceived notion that his audience will have to learn something about the Amish. The truth is, he’s got a mouth on him that would make a sailor blush and really doesn’t do any farming jokes.
    His love-hate rants about technology and prescription drugs will leave you wondering why an Amishman tweets and has EZ-Pass and maybe you don’t.
    Raymond the Amish Comic has recently been cast in the role previously played by the Unknown Comic in Sony Entertainments Workshop Production of The Gong Show Live. Amish Comic was buzzed off Season Five of America’s Got Talent in an unprecedented five seconds.
    Amish Comic has also appeared on MTV’s 7-Up and out, Comedy Central and a handful of television commercials. He plays skeptical Amishmen #87 in the Tim Allen film “For Richer For Poorer” and received $25 extra dollars a day during filming for having his own beard.
    He has appeared live on stage with Ian Anderson as part of the “Rubbing Elbows with Ian Anderson tour.”
    He’s a regular guest on the WZZO morning show with the Bearman & Keith, he’s also been on the Miserable Men Show on Howard 101 and Opie and Anthony on Sirius. Raymond will be releasing his first DVD entitled “For the Love of Rumspringa” and currently has his signature piece “Macdickhead” available on itunes for 99 cents.
    Please “Like” his fan page Facebook.com/Mr.Amishcomic and look for his channel on YouTube but be forewarned, this ain’t gonna be no prayer meeting (show contains adult language).
