Ron James: BACK HOME

    Debuts Monday December 31 at 9:00 p.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC Television

    TORONTO, Dec. 19 /CNW/ - On New Year's Eve, Monday December 31 at
9:00 p.m. (9:30 NT) CBC presents RON JAMES in his fourth, one-hour comedy
special, "BACK HOME".
    Filmed in Halifax before a hometown crowd, Ron gets Atlantic Canada and
the world at large between his comedic cross hairs, in a rollicking odyssey
covering past, present and future.
    The Halifax Chronicle-Herald says "...the Bruce Springsteen of
comedy...tearfully funny".
    If the other specials were driven by the perspective of a wide eyed
Celtic wanderer embracing the personality of people and place across the Big
Wide Open, "BACK HOME" is a Maritime son's satirical homage to his "borning
lands of lobster blood" on this rapidly spinning planet.
    Capitalizing on the critical and ratings success of his previous special,
"WEST COAST WILD" and his consistently sold out live shows, BACK HOME promises
to deliver what fans from coast to coast have validated for ten years..."he's
the funniest man in Canada"...Victoria Times Colonist.
    "...devastatingly funny", Globe and Mail.
