Consistently hailed by audiences and critics from coast to coast, Ron James is Canada’s #1 comedian, selling out theatres for 25 years. He’s been called “cleverly, hysterically funny”, by The Toronto Star; “a master comedian”, by St. John’s Telegram; and “the funniest man in Canada” by The Victoria Times Colonist.
James is a verbal gymnast who marries a comedian’s eye for satire with a writer’s ear for language, taking audiences on a non-stop, roller coaster ride that cuts a wide swath through contemporary culture with razor sharp wit and poetically charged delivery.
Throughout his 40+ year career in comedy, James 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 made several appearances at Just for Laughs and the Halifax and Winnipeg comedy festivals, racking up many awards and accolades along the way.
James is also the national bestselling author of All Over the Map: Rambles and Ruminations from the Canadian Road, which was one of the top 10 nominations for the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour.
