RON JAMES – NOT NEARLY DONE YET! Presented by Shantero Productions

With twenty-five years spent barrelling down endless strips of asphalt from coast to coast, Ron James, our nation’s number one road warrior and newly minted senior citizen, is Not Nearly Done Yet! With his trademark poetically charged alliterative rants, performed with razor sharp timing, this award-winning comedian and best-selling author takes audiences on a marathon roller coaster ride in the language of laughs, charting a course through a politically polarized world out of whack.  From the micro to macro, he tackles everything from the dating woes of Baby Boomers, embattled public health care, aging parents, food fads, exercise addiction, nostalgia, information overload, tropical vacations gone awry, New Age divas, homelessness crisis, climate change, corporate monopolies and gambling ads in hockey, to the rise of AI’s robot revolution. The comedian the Globe and Mail called, ‘a man of a million words and a million laughs’, contemplates what really matters most in a culture beset by runaway consumption… and it is us. The preservation of humanity’s humanity. ‘Everything else is just a spoiler on a Dodge Neon’.

“Utterly Brilliant” – Ottawa Sun; “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-busting, knee-slapping 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.
