Zawodni is a regular performer at the Pittsburgh Improv and the Arcade Comedy Theater. He also performs at colleges across the region including the University of Pittsburgh, California University of Pennsylvania and his alma mater, WVU.

Zawodni is known for his versatility on stage. Whether he is performing in the dark corner of a dive bar for local bikers or telling jokes to families at a church fundraiser, Zawodni always manages to keep his audience laughing. Ray hits crowds with his own unique brand of goofy, yet witty, humor. His jokes range from his struggles with adulthood to tattoos and text messaging.This comedian who grew up in a close-knit, working-class family feels honored to have shared the stage with some of the best comedians in the country such as Ralphie May, Bruce Bruce, Tom Segura, and John Witherspoon.
