Ray Jubela (Washington, DC)
Ray is a Washington DC based comedian that grew up idolizing George Carlin, and dreamed that one day he would be on stage bringing the laughter. While that dream was not realized until he was in his late 40’s, he has made up for lost time by being to be one the hardest working comics in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. Ray is a big guy with a big heart - a product of his kind nature and more than likely cardiomyopathy . He has appeared at the DC Improv and Broadway Comedy Club in NYC.
