Ron “AAlgar” Watt is a Seattle-based comedy writer-performer. He is the co-host of The Post Atomic Horror podcast (which irreverently reviews every episode of Star Trek ever produced) as well as the creator/producer of the ongoing comedy podcast Sarcastic Voyage, currently in the form of Sarcastic Voyage Theatre.
In the past, he has produced a series of comedic reviews of the 80s Transformers and GI Joe series, as well as the sporadic interview podcast More Bits.
He has been writing and performing with Portland-based writer/podcaster Matt Rowbotham since 2007. In addition to the Post Atomic Horror podcast, Matt and AAlgar have worked together on the Sarcastic Voyage family of podcasts (first as a chat/interview show; then as a series of comedy sketches, serials and radio plays).
In 2018, they co-wrote and co-starred in the free comedic point-and-click adventure game The Adventures of Nick and Willikins, based on characters created for Sarcastic Voyage. The game was produced by Pinhead Games, and received positive reviews from Kotaku and PC Gamer, among others.
They performed their sketch comedy live to capacity crowds at the Emerald City Comicon in both 2015 and 2016.
In 2012, the pair created a short YouTube video poking fun at legendary comics creators Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore. Thanks in part to coverage by Comics Alliance, Topless Robot, Newsarama and other prominent “nerd news” sites, the video went viral, racking up over 10,000 hits in under a week.
They also co-produced a series of webcomics from 2007-2009 (one of them with Kevin “Flonk” Lynch), which they hope everyone has since forgotten about.
AAl lives in Renton, a suburb of Seattle with his wife, Amanda Smith, with whom he occasionally collaborates creatively. He has gone by the name “AAlgar“ since 1991, and this comic explains why the name is so important to him.
