He may be a ranting and jig dancing crazy man on TV, but it’s on the stage where Ron James really thrives.
One of Canada’s busiest and best-selling comedians, James is returning to Vernon in 2012 with a new gut-bustingly, knee-slappingly funny 90-minute rant.
With five television comedy specials under his belt, James has since made a weekly appearance in his own self-titled show, which is in its third successful season on CBC-TV.
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, James’ live show has something for everyone.
Tickets to see Ron James live at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre May 10 are now on sale at the Ticket Seller box office. All seats are $54 and can be ordered by calling 549-7469 or online at www.ticketseller.ca.
