Comedian Ron James to perform in Truro in support of the Colchester East Hants Hospice Society

For immediate release

Truro, NS – The Colchester East Hants Hospice Society is pleased to announce that Ron James will be performing at You’ll Die Laughing 2015 in support of CEH Hospice programming. The event will take place on Friday, May 8th at 8:00pm at the Cobequid Education Centre (CEC), 34 Lorne Street, in Truro, NS. The night will include a pre-event reception beginning at 7:00pm, with special guests Mitchell Johnson of Big Dog 100.9 and Rod Deviller of Cat Country 99.5. The reception will include bar, hors d’oeuvres, 50/50 draw, light entertainment, and raffle.

Ron James is Canada’s award-winning, premier selling comedian, whose unique blend of poetically charged, kinetically driven, 100-minute non-stop stand-up comedy performances have been rewarded with standing ovations at sold out theatres from coast to coast.

Ron was voted Canadian Comedian of the Year at the inaugural Canadian Comedy Awards in 2000 and also garnered a Gemini Award as part of the writing team for This Hour Has 22 Minutes. He’s also enjoyed popular and coast-to-coast critical acclaim for five 60-minute specials for CBC TV: The Road Between My Ears, filmed in Toronto; Quest For The West, filmed in Calgary; West Coast Wild, filmed in Victoria, Back Home, filmed in Halifax and Manitoba Bound, filmed in Winnipeg. Ron has also enjoyed great success with the hit CBC comedy, The Ron James Show.
