With six critically acclaimed one-hour comedy specials under his belt and a television series entering its fifth successful season, Ron James is back doing what he does best: delivering laughs face to face and coast to coast, with a patented, poetically charged, non-stop performance of brand new material.

And on May 7 he will bring those laughs to the Tidemark Theatre

Whether launching blistering attacks on the micro-managing Harpercons who pinch pennies with one hand, while the other rewards gravy train riding Senators with back-room cash grabs, or probing the plight of the harried Canadian Everyman, fighting for small victories in Life’s daily struggle against forces that mess with his mojo, James takes no prisoners in pursuit of the funny. Topics as diverse as battles with Bell Customer Service, professional sports, visiting pandas, international conflict, trash TV, religion, sex, hope, Hell and apocalyptic weather, Ron’s comedic perspective is guaranteed to lighten the load of your daily grind in what the Globe and Mail has called, ‘two hours of non-stop hilarity’.
