Comedian Ron James returns to Campbell River this spring for a performance of Ron James...Live! at the Tidemark Theatre. Tickets are on sale at the theatre box office.

James returns for another gut-busting rant

Canada’s busiest and best-selling comedian takes to the road

With five television comedy specials under his belt and The Ron James Show into its third successful season on CBC-TV Fridays at 8 p.m., Canada’s busiest and best-selling comedian takes to the road with a new “gut-bustingly, knee-slappingly funny” 90-minute rant, Ron James … Live!

He will appear at the Tidemark Theatre on April 26.

From Mac-savvy 20-something tattooed techno-geeks to the mid-life angst of whiny, aging Baby Boomers, James weaves a verbal tapestry of trademark laughs that audiences and media alike have endorsed from coast to coast. 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 Pee Wee 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), and are available from the Tidemark box office (250-287-7465 or 800-994-0555).  Showtime is 8 p.m.  For more info, pics and clips, visit www.shantero.com or www.ronjames.ca
