Unshackled by network constraints and corporate oversight, prepare for Ron to let loose, moving full throttle as he unleashes his trademark kinetically charged live show. Hailed by critics from coast to coast, Ron James has consistently sold out theatres across the country with his legendary live performances. With a comedian’s eye for satire and a poet’s ear for language, Ron cuts a wide swath through contemporary culture with a razor sharp wit and machine-gun delivery, making him a stand-out among stand-up performers.

Ron recently garnered a Canadian Screen Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor for The Ron James Show, which recently wrapped production after five successful seasons on CBC-TV. He is also known for his previous series Blackfly and his seven top-rated stand-up specials, including Quest for the WestWest Coast WildBack Homeand Manitoba Bound. Prior to his enormous success as a stand-up comedian, Ron spent nine years with The Second City, performing on Toronto’s prestigious Main Stage for three years. Ron tours across Canada regularly, playing over 70 sold out dates per year. He is also a sought-after performer on the corporate circuit.
