Watching this show is exactly like watching my gram-pa try to be funny and failing miserably. We all grin around the table and maybe even force a laugh here and there when he talks louder and louder and waves his arms around to emphasize whatever the hell he is talking about and then when the joke/story is done (and the only way to tell when the endless stream of nonsense is done is that he stops talking and flailing his arms and looks around the table at the rest of us waiting for us to burst into laughter while he sits there with a huge grin on his face trying not to be the first one to laugh) we die a little inside because he is trying so hard but just isn't funny at all. Should we laugh to make him feel good or in the long run is it better for all of us if we don't humour him and let him know that his jokes need a lot of work? Anyway the Ron James show is like being trapped in a room with my gram-pa for half an hour while he tells one painfully unfunny joke after another. I don't know when CBC dove head first down the toilet but when they finally got rid of Air Farce then replaced it with an abortion of a show like this I lost all hope for original TV in this country. Seriously Ron James might be even less funny than This Hour Has 22 Minutes has become and that show is pathetic beyond belief. If you read this gram-pa sorry you are not really less funny than Ron James or This Hour Has 22 Minutes I was just joking to make a point.
