RON JAMES has been selling out theatres from ‘The Rock’ to ‘Lotus Land’ for 15 years, with his marathon, side-splitting, kinetically-charged performances. Marshalling a comedian’s eye for satire and a writer’s ear for language, Ron takes his audience on a non-stop roller coaster ride, cutting a wide swath through contemporary culture with a razor sharp wit, uncompromising standards and a unique, poetically honed delivery.
After five seasons starring in the aptly named ‘THE RON JAMES SHOW’, for which he received a nomination for a Canadian Screen Award for ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Series,’ he filmed his seventh television comedy special, ‘The Big Picture’, before a sold out crowd at 1700 seat Fallsview Casino. Unlike regional themes that dominated past specials, his latest project moves full tilt cross a wider world of issues covering everything from social media, family, corporate spin, ISIS and beyond. Ron has won a Gemini Award writing for ‘This Hour Has 22 Minutes’; created and starred for two seasons in the TV series ‘BLACKFLY’; been voted ‘Comedian of the Year’ and received the ‘Dave Broadfoot Comedic Genius Award’ from the CCA’s for his impressive & inspiring body of work.
