Ron James

Award-Winning Comedian & Satirist

Bio

Known as “the funniest man in Canada” (Victoria Times Colonist) and with a comedian’s eye for satire and a writer’s ear for language, the former This Hour Has 22 Minutes staff writer skewers politics and contemporary culture in razor sharp, side-splitting performances. He’s a highly sought-after keynote entertainer and Master of Ceremonies.

An “explosively funny” (Chronicle Herald) “comedic tour de force” (Globe and Mail), Ron James starred in his own series, The Ron James Show, for five seasons. For this he was nominated 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 garnered nearly one million viewers in the coveted New Year’s Eve 9:00 pm time slot. His most recent special The Big Picture was filmed before a sold out crowd of 1,700.

Ron James won a Gemini Award for writing This Hour Has 22 Minutes; created and starred in the TV series Blackfly; was voted “Comedian of the Year” and received the Dave Broadfoot Comedic Genius Award from the CCA for his impressive body of work. In 2015, Ron received his Doctorate of Humanities from Acadia University. Ron is currently in production on his seventh special that will air December 31st, 2015 on CBC.

During our conference, Ron James delivered a fantastic performance that energized a diverse crowd of business operators, government officials, and politicians at the end of a long day of presentations. Ron had everyone in stitches and kept everyone engaged—his knowledge of the Yukon’s history, issues, people, and culture was a clear indication that he had done his homework in advance. He went above and beyond to interact with everyone over the weekend, which made his involvement that much more memorable and the conference that much more special. Ron is a class act—charming and professional, his love of Canada and his connection to the North is always evident. He has left a lasting impression on everyone who attended our event.
