Fancy Ray isn't really known for anything except... being Fancy Ray. He's the self-described "best looking man in comedy" and a "human chocolate testicle," but can you really blame Minnesotans for wondering what this guy actually does to get all of this semi-fame?
Well he knows just what you're thinking. Think of him this way: Paris Hilton with a pretty tan. All questions answered.
He is a Twin Cities celebrity, but many people have no idea what he does. "I've become like the Paris Hilton of Minneapolis. I'm famous, but why?" said McCloney, never hesitant about self-promotion. "I'm like Paris with a pretty tan."We're calling for his return to public access TV. That show was golden. You've got to give this guy a high-five for working his tail off in an industry that isn't always the most welcoming to Fancy Ray types. We'll still cheer for our hometown hero.
Actually, he is a comedian, celebrating 20 years of standup with his Friday-Saturday gig every weekend this month at Scott Hansen's Comedy Gallery in the Holiday Inn in east St. Paul. He also is a TV pitchman, doing commercials for everything from homeopathic health-food stores to adult bookstores. And he runs a full-service ad agency, which is how he makes his living. He stopped doing his cable-access TV show, "Get Down With It," in 1999, but it still may be what he's best known for.
