James rants with the best

Ron James weaves a verbal tapestry of trademark laughs that audiences and media alike have endorsed from coast to coast

COMEDIAN RON JAMES

COMEDIAN RON JAMES

With five television comedy specials under his belt and the Ron James Show into its third successful season on CBC-TV, Canada’s busiest and best-selling comedian takes to the road with a new “gut-bustingly, knee-slappingly funny” 90-minute rant.

From MAC-savvy twenty-something tattooed techno-geeks to the mid-life angst of whiny, aging Baby Boomers, Ron James weaves a verbal tapestry of trademark laughs that audiences and media alike have endorsed from coast to coast:

“Devastatingly funny” — Globe & Mail; “5 STARS – Utterly Brilliant” — Ottawa Sun; “fits of helpless laughter” — Halifax Chronicle Herald; “funniest man in Canada” — Victoria Times-Colonist; “4 STARS – a wheezing, snorting, chortling, gasping night of hilarity” — Edmonton Sun; “convulsed with laughter” — Toronto Star; “fast, funny and smart” — Montreal Gazette; “thunderous standing ovation” — Saskatoon Star Phoenix.

Whether it’s our national blood sport of contemporary politics, or family stories from the 1960s, where dreams of making the NHL are squandered on peewee league hand-me-down hockey skates with buckles on them a leprechaun would wear, or a frightening forest encounter with a nostril-drooling bull moose that gets him babbling in a ‘Cro-Magnon tongue he never knew he was fluent in’, RON JAMES … LIVE! has something for everyone!

Reserved seating tickets for RON JAMES … LIVE! are $40.63 to $46.43 (plus tax and local facility charges). They’re on sale now.

Showtime April 27 at the Sid Williams Theatre is 8 p.m.

Tickets are at the Sid Williams box office on Cliffe Avenue in Courtenay. Phone 250-338-2430, ext. 1.
