Popular comedian returning to Duncan

Popular comedian Ron James is back at the Cowichan Theatre Sunday, May 11.

It seems like a long way off, but if you want good seats, it’s a good idea to get them now.

With six critically acclaimed one-hour comedy specials under his belt and a television series entering its fifth successful season, James is a Valley favourite.

He is back doing what he does best: delivering laughs face to face with his patented, take-no-prisoners style performance and brand new material.

Whether he’s launching blistering attacks on what he calls "the micro-managing Harpercons" who pinch pennies with one hand, while the other rewards gravy train riding senators with backroom cash grabs, or probing the plight of the harried Canadian Everyman, fighting for small victories in life’s daily struggle against forces that mess with his mojo, James pulls no punches.

Fans will enjoy topics as diverse as battles with Bell customer service, professional sports, visiting pandas, international conflict, trash TV, religion, sex, hope, hell and apocalyptic weather. James’s comedic perspective is guaranteed to lighten the load of your daily grind in what the Globe and Mail has called, "two hours of nonstop hilarity".

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Reserved seating tickets are on sale now at $53 apiece.
