Award Winning Comedian Ron James to perform at the Colosseum April 15 on ‘Pedal to the Metal’ TourBook A Room
For immediate release: January 20, 2016
Windsor, ON – Famed Canadian comic Ron James is set to put audiences in stitches on his Pedal to the Metal tour with a stop at The Colosseum on Friday, April 15 at 9 pm.
Hailed by critics from coast to coast, award winning comedian James has consistently sold out theatres across the country with his marathon, kinetically charged performances. With a comedian’s eye for satire and a poet’s ear for language, James cuts a wide swath through contemporary culture with a razor sharp wit and machine-gun delivery, making him a stand-out among stand-up performers.
In addition to his stand-up tours, Ron completed the fifth season of his comedy series The Ron James Show, where he received a Canadian Screen Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor. Ron’s one hour comedy specials, The Road Between My Ears, Quest for the West, West Coast Wild, Back Home and Manitoba Bound have garnered nearly one million viewers and huge critical acclaim.
Prior to his enormous success as a stand-up comedian, James spent nine years with The Second City, performing on Toronto’s prestigious Main Stage for three years. He’s been nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Genie Awards (Something About Love), has won a Gemini Award as part of the writing team for This Hour Has 22 Minutes and has been voted Canadian Comedian of the Year (inaugural Canadian Comedy Awards).
