RON JAMES…FULL THROTTLE!
Award-winning comedian RON JAMES has been selling out theatres for 15 years with his marathon, side-splitting, kinetically charged performances. Marshaling a comedian’s eye for satire and a writer’s ear for language, Ron takes his audience on a breath-taking, non-stop roller coaster ride, cutting a wide swath through contemporary culture with his razor-sharp ribald wit, uncompromising standards and unique, poetically honed delivery … a stand-out amongst ‘stand-ups’.
With nine critically acclaimed one-hour comedy specials under his belt, plus five seasons starring in his own series, “The Ron James Show”, Canada’s #1 road warrior is back doing what he does best: delivering laughs face to face and coast to coast … a high octane Full Throttle ride!

For 35 years, Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers have been touring Canada, splashing their unique taste of Newfoundland through more than 360 communities as far flung as Port Hardy, Iqaluit, Leading Tickles and Toronto. The flavour of the Buddy experience is one of home grown folk music, songs and humour. With poignant recitations, sublime song portraiture, beautiful traditional music and emotional travel anecdotes, liberally dosed with zany sketches and monologues to widen the emotional loop, their audiences are left teary eyed and simultaneously exhausted from laughter. All in all, the best two hours you’ll ever spend.

THE COMIC STRIPPERS
A Male Stripper Parody and Improv Comedy Show
Canadian Comedy Award Winners – Best Live Production
Back By Popular Demand With An All New Show!
The Comic Strippers, back by popular demand with an all new show, are afictitious male stripper troupe played by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians. These guys try to be sexy… it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating, in between scenes they banter with the crowd and perform their sexylarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance;” these guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh. Women often say the most attractive thing about a man is his sense of humour – so ladies, these stripped-down comedians are sure to make your head explode. And not to worry, gentlemen, this is definitely a parody of male strippers. Some of the performers have what’s called ‘Comedy Bodies’ – they will make you look fabulous by comparison!
Semi-undressed and completely unscripted, The Comic Strippers take off their shirts and take on your suggestions to create a whole new genre of comedy.
WARNING: No extreme nudity, just extreme hilarity. A show for all genders… 19+ only

Just like a classic episode of ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’ the audience members play a pivotal role at a Popalopots show, where they bring suggestions to life with stories, characters, and jokes that either knock it out of the park or, at times, fall flat on their face. Either way, you’ll be in for a night of unforgettable laughs.

tale, we will be revealing a new performer on the lineup every week leading to the show!
The whole event will be hosted by PEI comedian Sam MacDonald!
