Critically Acclaimed Comedian | Star of Nine Comedy Specials
Hailed by critics from coast to coast, Ron James is Canada’s #1 comedian, consistently packing theatres across the country for almost 20 years with his marathon side-splitting stand-up comedy performances. Ron has been called “a man of a million words and million laughs”, by The Globe and Mail; “explosively funny”, by The Chronicle Herald; and “the funniest man in Canada” by The Victoria Times Colonist, among countless other accolades.
This verbal gymnast marries a comedian’s eye for satire with a writer’s ear for language, during his non-stop roller-coaster ride that cuts a wide swath through contemporary culture with razor sharp wit, uncompromising standards and a unique, poetically honed delivery making him a stand-out amongst stand-up comedians.
Ron has written and starred in a record breaking nine one-hour CBC comedy specials, created and starred in two television series, (Blackfly and The Ron James Show) and been nominated for two Canadian Screen Awards.
His first book, All Over the Map, will be published by Random House in 2019.
