Alterna Savings Crackup presents a special 2 hour performance to benefit local mental health organizations and the United Way of Ottawa!
Called the ‘gold standard in Canadian stand-up comedy’ and star of 9 critically acclaimed one-hour CBC comedy specials, seeing Ron live is where the rubber hits the road, as this non-stop, poetically charged and physical performer promises to deliver a night of ‘side-splitting laughs that has them rolling the aisles’.

ABOUT ALTERNA SAVINGS CRACKUP
Alterna Savings Crackup has presented comedy for a cause shows for the past 13 years in Ottawa. Formerly named, Cracking-up the Capital, it began as a one-night comedy show and has grown into a two week-long festival that takes place during Winterlude.
With the help of our sponsors, community partners, media partners, and our supporters, Alterna Savings Crackup has raised over $175, 000 in support of local mental health initiatives.
With the support of the United Way Ottawa, this year’s festival will benefit Amethyst Women’s Addiction Centre, Causeway, the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre, Do It for Daron (DIFD) at The Royal, Partners for Mental Health, and the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health.
