One of Canada’s Favourite Comedians
Ron James has been described as “explosively funny” (Chronicle Herald) and a “comedic tour de force” (Globe and Mail). The Ron James Show aired for five seasons and garnered James a nomination for a Canadian Screen Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Series. He has written and starred in seven one-hour comedy specials, several of which attracted nearly one million viewers in the coveted New Year’s Eve 9:00pm time slot. Last year’s special, “The Big Picture,” was filmed before a sold-out crowd of 1,700 and landed James his newest special, “Fast Forward,” which airs on December 31st, 2015 on CBC Television. The show moves full tilt across a wide world of issues, covering everything from social media, family, corporate spin, ISIS, and beyond.

On a day when the world financial markets were suffering an unprecedented meltdown, Ron James did the impossible: he pulled 90 minutes of non-stop laughs from a room full of 400 financial advisors with his unique brand of polished, intelligent and poetically charged hilarity. Afterwards, there was nothing but unanimous praise for a comedian clearly on top of his game!
In particular, we were delighted with his style and were highly impressed with his ability to customize his materialâ€¦Ronâ€™s skill enabled him to locate the common denominator we all share and tweak our collective funnybone.
I was particularly impressed with your professionalism, your ability to read the audience, and your keen sense of timing.
