Award-winning comedian RON JAMES has been selling out theatres for over 15 years with his marathon, side-splitting, kinetically charged performances. Marshaling a comedian’s eye for satire and a writer’s ear for language, Ron takes his audience on a breath-taking, non-stop roller coaster ride, cutting a wide swath through contemporary culture with his razor-sharp ribald wit, uncompromising standards and unique, poetically honed delivery. A stand-out amongst ‘stand-ups’...

“Utterly Brilliant” -  Ottawa Sun; “a man of a million words and a million laughs ... genius” - Globe & Mail; “a unique brand of funny all his own” - Winnipeg Free Press; “fits of helpless laughter” - Halifax Chronicle Herald; “hysterically funny ... at the top of his game” - Toronto Star; “gut-bustingly, knee slappingly funny” - Ottawa Citizen, “funniest man in Canada” - Victoria Times-Colonist; “a wheezing, snorting, chortling, gasping night of hilarity” - Edmonton Sun; “fast, funny and smart”- Montreal Gazette; “simply the best” - Toronto Sun; “thunderous standing ovation” - Saskatoon Star Phoenix.

With nine critically acclaimed one-hour comedy specials under his belt, plus five seasons starring in his own series, “The Ron James Show”, Canada’s #1 road warrior is back doing what he does best: delivering laughs face to face and coast to coast ... a high octane Full Throttle ride!

It is 6pm and the Douglas family is busily preparing to be invaded by their quirky relatives for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick Vinny, find themselves in need of a place to briefly hide out. Using a ruse to gain entrance into the Douglas home, they suddenly find themselves in charge of an ever-growing list of family members that they are forced to hold hostage. From smart-alack teenagers, to nosy neighbors, and bickering adults - the laughs (like the flow of people) are non-stop and we soon wonder who is holding who hostage?!

With outrageous characters, laugh-a-minute-dialogue, and a surprise, heart-felt ending – The holidays have never been so funny!

Christmas As You Remember it

John Gracie is known internationally for his best-selling Christmas albums. John brings his live audiences the best of Christmases past, the Christmas carols you want to singalong to, the ones that evoke memories of childhood and family holiday moments we treasure. Interspersed with these timeless Holiday songs, John shares stories of his Christmases growing up in Cape Breton and some of the background to how the carols were inspired.  His stories are funny, interesting and emotive.  

You will long remember the Christmas concert with multiple award-winning singer John Gracie.
