Award-Winning Comedian and Satirist
Hailed by critics from coast to coast, Ron James is Canada’s number-one comedian, consistently packing theatres across the country. The star of his own former CBC TV program, The Ron James Show, he cuts a wide swath through contemporary culture with his razor-sharp wit and machine-gun delivery, making him a standout among stand-up performers. With many acts at hand, there’s sure to be something in Ron’s vast repertoire that will resonate with your audience—not to mention have them howling with laughter.
Prior to hosting The Ron James Show, he wrote and starred in five critically acclaimed CBC television comedy specials, including The Road Between My Ears, Quest for the West, West Coast Wild, Back Home, and Manitoba Bound; for two seasons, he also starred on Global television in a period sitcom of his own creation.
Ron has been recognized for his acting with a nomination for a “Genie Award Best Supporting Actor”; he shared in a Gemini Award with the writing team on This Hour Has 22 Minutes; and he was voted “Canadian Comedian of the Year.” In 2015, Ron received his Doctorate of Humanities from Acadia University.
