Award-winning comedian Ron James has been selling out theatres for 15 years with his marathon, side-splitting, kinetically charged performances.

Marshalling a comedian’s eye for satire and a writer’s ear for language, Ron takes his audience on a breathtaking, non-stop roller-coaster ride, cutting a wide swath through contemporary culture with his razor-sharp ribald wit, uncompromising standards and unique, poetically honed delivery. “Utterly Brilliant” – Ottawa Sun;

“a man of a million words and a million laughs … genius” – Globe & Mail;

“a unique brand of funny all his own” – Winnipeg Free Press;

“fits of helpless laughter” – Halifax Chronicle Herald;

“hysterically funny … at the top of his game” – Toronto Star;

“gut-bustingly, knee-slappingly funny” – Ottawa Citizen,

“funniest man in Canada” – Victoria Times-Colonist;

“a wheezing, snorting, chortling, gasping night of hilarity” – Edmonton Sun;

“fast, funny and smart” – Montreal Gazette; “simply the best” – Toronto Sun;

“thunderous standing ovation” – Saskatoon Star Phoenix.

With eight critically acclaimed one-hour comedy specials under his belt, plus five seasons starring in his own series, “The Ron James Show,” Canada’s No. 1 road warrior is back doing what he does best: delivering laughs face to face and coast to coast.
