Award-winning comedian RON JAMES has been selling out theatres for 15 years with his marathon, side-splitting, kinetically charged performances. Marshaling a comedian’s eye for satire and a writer’s ear for language, Ron takes his audience on a breath-taking, 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. A stand-out amongst ‘stand-ups’…

“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 #1 road warrior is back doing what he does best: delivering laughs face to face and coast to coast … a full throttlePedal To The Metal ride!
