“Seattle’s Ross Parsons …is like a more meta, 21st-century Steven Wright, with a cool line in hilarious deadpan non-sequiturs and bizarre twists on common comedy tropes. His act is like a guy who’s just woke up and groggily relates the scrambled contents of his very strange mind, intoning one surprising downered epiphany after another.”

Dave Segal The Stranger
