Comedian Rodney Ramsey from Montreal will present his homemade videos that make fun of the Quebec language laws. Don't miss these great videos and his live comedy.
Rodney Ramsey is a Montreal native who is gaining much notoriety on the stand-up comedy scene. As an underground comedy promoter, with the ability to take over stages as a comedian or actor, Rodney is a triple threat who is quickly gaining notice.
After months of notoriously heckling comics at comedy shows, Rodney decided to perform at open mics, then began opening on weekends at various clubs across the country a short time later. Feeling trapped in the mainstream comedy clubs and eager to experiment on stage with alternative material, in 2004 Rodney created the Drunken Show. The first show was a hit and went on to be Montreal's premiere underground comedy show with a large cult following. Rodney then went on to co-create the Dead Comics Society, a Sketch comedy group that got rave reviews at both the Toronto and Montreal sketch festivals. Shortly after, Rodney Ramsey represented Montreal in the Just for Laughs home grown competition, premiering on City TV's in House comics. Rodney went on to host Montreal's Bad Boys of Comedy show two years in a row, which was well received in the African-Canadian community. Rodney Ramsey also performed on The Debaters airing on CBC radio and broadcast across Canada.
Now living in Toronto, Rodney was recently published in The Star newspaper for winning the best Obama joke contest. Rodney's hard-work ethic and ultra magnetic stage presence make for a great comedian to watch now and in the years to come.
