Nobody makes me laugh out loud like Ron James. Canada's ultimate Road Warrior will be "Live from my Living Room" with a brand new comedy special on Sunday, March 21 at 8 p.m.
James' virtual New Year's Eve special sold over 3500 tickets. This new hour, co-written by a couple of comedy veterans, features all new material. Tickets are available at here with some proceeds going to the theatres and other venues James would normally have played in all across Canada.
"Live performance has taken a torpedo to the bow," says James, who last performed before an actual audience March 7, 2020, at Hamilton Place. "Given the relentless pummeling COVID 19 has delivered to our battered psyches, I figure the best way to keep our sanity intact in the face of this madness… is by laughing at it!"
He's calling this latest virtual comedy show, "Spring Loaded."
Listen as he talks about his long road to the top of the Canadian stand-up summit, including his start with "Second City," his brush with SCTV, his year of starvation in the States and many other encounters and adventures. He singles out a couple of comedy heroes along the way, including Scottish funnyman Billy Connolly.
This episode is the best back stage pass on what Ron has planned for March 21. Listen in and laugh along with Ron's take on Canada at a COVID crossroads.
