Inexplicably, Seats Still Available for Ron James’ Manitoba Tour

with one week to go, the host of “The Ron James Show” on CBC, Ron James, has tons of seats still available. How can a comedian who "has five television comedy specials to his name" and "brings laughter with his Canadian-style humour wherever he travels." not sell out immediately? What kind of world do we live in where this isn't funny:


If you couldn't tell, I was being sarcastic. Who the hell says "Is your problem digital or analogue" ? Maybe if talking about a television signal, but.. what the hell is he even talking about? Is it simply reveling in ones own ignorance on a subject that is the source of his humour? This style of "comedy" is everything I hate in the world. But, some people like it. Clearly not enough to fill up the Pantages theatre in Winnipeg, of course, clearly not good enough for anything but quota filling by the CBC.. "We need some more shows on CBC with people from the maritimes or else they'll start to get uppity, whatcha got for me" "This comedian, Ron James.. people seem to laugh at the words coming out of his mouth for some reason".. Still, It takes an amazing amount of talent for someone to make someone else laugh without saying anything particularly funny. Bravo, Ron James. Though if the above comedy clip on youtube is any indication, theres no worry of him finding his way to my blog post.
