Ron James is an award-winning stand-up comedian, writer, actor and now recently an author.

He is known as one of Canadas best ever comedians where he’s also been voted Comedian of the Year at the Canadian Comedy Awards and has been awarded with the Best One Person Show title. He has also appeared half a dozen times at Just for Laughs, the Halifax and Winnipeg Comedy Festivals, Edinburgh Festival, and starred in the first television series of his own creation, Blackfly, which ran for two seasons.

Ron has written and starred in a record-breaking nine one-hour CBC comedy specials, created and starred in two television series (Blackfly and The Ron James Show) and has been nominated for two Canadian Screen Awards. His one-hour comedy specials which have been a New Year’s Eve tradition for the past 9 years along with his television series have captivated millions and made him a household name. 

Ron’s new book, All Over the Map: Rambles and Ruminations from the Canadian Road is now out. This is a book he has been writing for most of his life, created while driving from gig to gig and it sounds fantastic! Check it out in the links below under his website.

As you can imagine, we cover a lot such as Joseph Campbell, purpose, confidence, being fired from Second City, Hollywood & chasing success & fame, people pleasing, writing a book, great advice received by comedy icons such as Billy Connolly, financial hardships and choosing happiness.
