Rodney Ramsey / Standup comics, comedians and comedy writers from the finest talent roster in Canada
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 which 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, which premiered 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 which was aired on CBC radio and broadcast across Canada. Now living in Toronto, Rodney was recently published in The Star news paper 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.
