Free comedy show. Tonight’s featured comedian is Ron Kanutski.
Ron was born in Dryden, Ontario to a Carpenter and a Virgin back in the 60’s, when sex and drugs were cool and rock & roll was evolving. Living on the shores of Wabigoon Lake, he grew up in nature, listening to story tellers and braggarts at kitchen tables & coffee shops and the open conversations of numerous car rebuilding projects, hunting and fishing trips.
With a love and passion for many things in life, Ron fell in love with alcohol and drugs for a seven-year period, which ironically later directed and guided him for the past 25 years as a teacher, social worker, counsellor, MC, presenter, musician & most recently COMEDIAN.
Although Ron loved comedy for many years, he never stepped onto the stage until 2009 and achieved Runner Up on his first attempt at the Thunder Bay Comedy Idol competition. He returned in 2010, winning the Thunder Bay’s Comic Idol competition and its $750 dollar grand prize.
Ron plunged into the world of comedy in 2012, opening for four sold out shows with Mr. Darryl Lenox, followed by headlining a number of shows in Northwestern Ontario & Minnesota including the only Thunder Bay Comic Idol winner to ever headline the Thunder Bay Comic Idol Competition in April 2012.
In addition to his own comedy career and interests, Ron believes in the local talent of the Thunder Bay area. This led to his creation of www.superiorcomedy.com promoting what local comedy talent has to offer. His comedy is “something old, something new, something borrowed & something blue.”
