Ron Stubbings was born and raised in Toronto. He holds a B.A. from York University and a MASTER OF THEOLOGICAL STUDIES from Trinity College and The University of Toronto. During high school and university Stubbings placed comedy on the backburner, instead performing, writing and recording music. Most people knew Ron from his involvement in sudent politics while at York and his role as a candidate for ordination (The Anglican Church of Canada)during the late 90's. After losing "his money, his car, his dog, his house and his faith" during a 2001 divorce he decided to pursue a life long dream. The dream of poverty and stand-up comedy was realized in 2005 when Ron perfomed open mic for the first time. Since that first show Ron moved on to become "out spoken" in the Toronto comedy scene. While well liked by a devoted following he had a very public falling out with some other local comedians that left him blacklisted at most clubs. It was due to his reputation as "the most hated comedian in Canada" that Stubbings went underground and spend over 2 years writing for other comics while having to abandon his own stand-up shows. Stubbings has appeared on THE HOWARD STERN SHOW, RobOnt Radio, You Bet Your Ass, Inside The Box and his facebook featured "RONCASTS". In November 2010 he returned to live stand-up at "THE SECOND CITY" and "YUK YUK'S" in Toronto. Currently, Ron is preparing for summer 2011 when he plans to return to full time performances in both Canada and the United States, taking the "RonCast" beyond its current cult status to a weekly live audio and video Podcast and a project TBA that will (hopefully) be picked up by one of the cable outlets. So, keep your eye on the summer of 2011 and (inspite of other comedians doing what they will to kill the dream) view the comeback of a lifetime!
