In this week’s episode of The Ron James Show, Ron proves that when it comes to funny, there’s no place like home.

A young couple’s search for their dream home turns ugly when the wife becomes possessed – literally – with getting into the right neighbourhood; when a man realizes the storage unit he’s renting is roomier than his downtown condo, he starts to think inside the box; L’il Ronnie attempts a daredevil bike jump to impress a girl; and in this week’s Ode to the Road, Ron finds the ‘magnetism’ in Moncton, New Brunswick.

Featuring guest stars, Lauren Ash, Raoul Bhaneja and Allana Harkin. Continue reading »

In this week’s episode of The Ron James Show, Ron cuts to the chase when examining our relentless pursuit of Happiness.

A self-help guru has a TV journalist questioning everything and nothing; a bank job goes south when one of the robbers wonders mid-heist if this is what he’s really meant to do; when L’il Ronnie gets bit by a harmless dog, cousin Becky plays the rabies card and has him foaming at the mouth with anxiety; and in this season’s first Ode to the Road, Ron tries to find his inner cowboy at the 100th Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede.

Ring in the New Year with Canada’s iconic funnyman, Ron James, as he returns to the airwaves for his annual New Year’s tradition of bringing laughter to Canadians

THE RON JAMES SHOW: NEW YEAR’S EDITION airs Sunday, January 1 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT), on CBC Television, in an extended one hour version of James’ quick-witted comedy.

In his sixth annual New Year’s special, comedian Ron James puts 2011 to bed as only he can, then looks ahead to 2012, sincerely hoping the Mayans were just having a bad day at the temple when they made their famous doomsday prediction.

Joining James to celebrate are special guests Sonja Smits, Eric Peterson, Michael Therriault, Raoul Bhaneja, Kathy Greenwood, Matt Baram and Lauren Ash.

Of course it wouldn’t be New Year’s without Aunt Vivien’s annual message to the royal family, and her homespun advice to newlyweds Will and Kate is as cut and dried as Marks and Spencer shortbread; a usually quiet electronics store manager channels General Patton to rally his troops for the battle known as Boxing Day; guests of Canada’s greatest 19th century detective Mordecai Moncton learn that attending one of his parties can be murder; a top military official is in the hot seat for accidentally shooting down a certain bearded, jolly, red-suited man on Christmas Eve; and Lil Ronnie is staging a covert operation of his own, up way past his bedtime trying to raid the snack table of Ma and Pa’s New Year’s party; and in a special musical number to close the show, a mall and chain weary Ron pays cranky tribute to the season with fellow survivors of the holiday madness.

THE RON JAMES SHOW showcases the talents of renowned and much-beloved comedian Ron James, and his poetically charged observations about surviving life in the modern world. Anchored by James’ hilarious stand-up and cutting field sketches that are rich in satire and physical comedy, THE RON JAMES SHOW is a coast-to-coast hit on CBC-TV.

Canada’s favourite funny man, Ron James, reprises his annual New Year’s Eve tradition of ringing in the new calendar by making the country laugh.

THE RON JAMES SHOW: NEW YEAR’S EVE EDITION airs Friday December 31 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT), on CBC Television, in an extended one hour version of James’ trademark razor-sharp comedy.

In his fifth annual New Year’s Eve special, comedian Ron James offers his unique comedic take on Canada’s ever-changing seasons. Joining James to celebrate are special guests Grammy & Juno winner Ed Robertson from Barenaked Ladies, Canadian rock legend Kim Mitchell and Kid in the Hall Scott Thompson.

In special New Year’s sketches, Aunt Vivien turns the tables and skypes a New Year’s Message to Her Royal Highness; a man loses his cool over constantly being asked for holiday donations; Buddy the Newfie Vampire receives a visit from the temptress who “turned him” 118 years earlier;  and The Mayor puts his foot in it again while delivering his New Year’s message.

Larry Garibaldi fantasizes about getting his revenge on a bigoted shopper who thinks that all the “foreigners” should be sent back home and Lil Ronnie finds an unusual way to spell out a special holiday message for his family.

THE RON JAMES SHOW showcases the talents of renowned and much-beloved comedian Ron James, and his poetically charged observations about surviving life in the modern world. Anchored by James’ hilarious stand-up and cutting field sketches that are rich in satire and physical comedy, THE RON JAMES SHOW is a coast-to-coast hit on CBC-TV.

On Wednesday, December 15th, comedian Ron James, star of CBC Television’s The Ron James Show, set the world record for the most tweets in a single day by an individual.

Ron posted an astounding 520 tweets between the hours of 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m., exceeding his original goal of 500 – a voracious number of tweets that have left his thumbs battered and bruised. Do the math – that’s nearly one message every 90 seconds in a 16 hour period!

Ron, a self-admitted technophobe, was accompanied by a crack squad of techno geeks who supported him in his quest for Twitter world domination. It was a day filled with twitter mayhem as Ron included the online world in everything from his morning shower, to picking up a Starbucks on the way to playing shinny, to Christmas shopping at his own peril, to hitting the office, dinner at Veritas restaurant, and ultimately ending his record breaking day by enjoying the iconic film “A Christmas Story” before signing off for the night. 

Ron is the award-winning and celebrated comedian whose talents are showcased as the star of the weekly series, The Ron James Show, anchored by James’ hilarious and razor-sharp stand-up comedy. Be sure to tune in for Ron’s fifth annual New Year’s Eve Edition special on December 31 at 9:00 p.m. (9:30 NT).

In the spirit of the holiday season, Ron will be donating 1845 non-perishable food items to Food Banks Canada, corresponding with every mention of the official hashtag #RonJames and social sharing actions on both Twitter and Facebook. “In just one day Ron has made a valuable contribution, by providing much-needed food, and by informing thousands of Canadians about the work of food banks,” said Katharine Schmidt, Executive Director of Food Banks Canada.

In this week’s episode of The Ron James Show Canada’s favourite comedian guides us through the pros and cons of travel; attempts to convince his wife that an unexpected guest is no reason to overlook the many benefits of house swapping; and turns to a friend for help rather than face the consequences of telling his girlfriend the truth.

Larry Garibaldi teaches some politicians a lesson about the environment and Lil Ronnie realizes that no matter how badly you want something, it just never pays to cheat. And in his latest Ode to the Road, Ron pays tribute to Toronto, his second home and tries to convince the rest of Canada to give The Big Smoke a chance. 

Guest cast: Christian Potenza (Riverdale), Deb McGrath (Little Mosque on the Prairie).

Friday, December 3 at 8 p.m. (8:30 p.m. NT) on CBC-TV

In this week’s episode of The Ron James Show, Canada’s favourite comic shares some straight talk about Men & Women, accepts the consequences of settling for less, and struggles to help his wife pick out new knobs – that’s a reference to furniture, not family.

Meanwhile L’il Ronnie saves up to buy Sea Monkeys; Larry Garibaldi puts some parliamentarians in their place; and Ron pays tribute to Peterborough, ON in his latest Ode to the Road.

Guest Cast:  Linda Kash (Everybody Loves Raymond) and Deb McGrath (Little Mosque on the Prairie).
