His live comedy shows have consistently filled theatres across the country garnering unanimous praise from audiences and critics alike. He's been called "the funniest man in Canada" by the Victoria Times-Colonist and "devastatingly funny and clever" by the Globe and Mail.According to James,
"I'm just trying to make sense of the daily chaos we're all walking through on this rapidly spinning planet".

and Manitoba Bound
garnered nearly one million viewers on CBC Television.
