Fresh off his recent ‘Double Trouble’ tour, Jimmie is releasing the latest collection of his work in the form of a comedy album called ‘A Day Late and a Loonie Short’.
I was lucky enough to catch up with the former East Coaster at his home on the north side to not only ask him a few questions about he upcoming album, but to also find out where this can-con icon got his start in comedy.
He has been on the job for a while. In his first live recording, Ronnie Jimmie Having fun, things didn’t really go his way. Maybe it was the audience, maybe it was him, he isn’t really sure. One thing he is sure about though is the CBC really ‘Oh Shit’ the bed.
That didn’t stop Jimmie…

Over the past ten years, we’ve accumulated a collection of songs about dogs, Alberta towns, winter and exploding penguins. These songs – performed on CBC’s Irrelevant Show, at North Country Fair, and on various stages throughout Alberta – have been a popular part of our repertoire.
Having performed countless times in the now destroyed Roxy Theatre, Mostly Water Theatre will donate 15% of album sales to Theatre Network.
Produced and recorded in Edmonton’s Norwood Studio, the album features local A-list musicians Nathan Carroll, James Murdoch, and Bradford Tebble.
All the songs are written and performed by the stupid idiots in Mostly Water.
So have a beer. Take a listen. And I don’t know, have a nap or something. I don’t know what you need to do.
NASA recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope by releasing a new, higher resolution look at the iconic “Pillars of Creation” located in the Eagle Nebula, 6,500 light years from Earth.
It’s a testament to humanity that we can see this far into our skies. How tiny a spec of insignificance we all are on this miniscule floating blue ball of existence.
These “pillars” are also super scary and possessed or something else totally scary!
The scientists at Mostly Water Theatre took a closer look and found some stuff that will chill your spine right to the bone!
EXHIBIT A: Dead Mouse
Upon closer examination of the middle column, we see some kind of terrifying dead mouse or one of those yep-yep-yep-uhuh aliens from Sesame Street. Ominous to be sure. But what could it mean?!
EXHIBIT B: Spooky Face Guy
Near the top of the leftmost pillar, a giant haunted soul with glowing eyes appears to beg for questions. Am I using that right?
EXHIBIT C: Beelzebubula
On the rightmost pillar is clearly the devil. Look at him!
He’s got glowing fire-breath or something!
And it sort of looks like he’s pointing. Maybe in the direction of Earth! Maybe even towards YOUR house!
EXHIBIT D: And What’s This?!
We don’t even want to hazard a guess at what this might be. But it looks like trouble!
No matter what these turn out to be, it seems like we’re screwed.
NASA refused to comment about this, but it’s obvious that there is a major cover-up for something probably pretty perverted and gross.
We’ll call NASA again in the morning, but they seemed really mad at our last phone call.
What is Metro Shorts? Well …
Metro Shorts is an adjudicated short film event hosted by Mostly Water Theatre and produced by Metro. It gives local filmmakers an opportunity to screen their work for a live audience and industry professionals, and the chance to be renewed. Filmmakers whose films are selected for inclusion receive a $50 CARFAC screening fee, with an additional $100 cash prize given to the winner of each event. A grand prize is presented at the end of the season.
Where is it? Since you asked…
Metro Cinema Society can be found in the Garneau Theatre at 8712 109 Street in Edmonton, Alberta T6G 2L5

Whose shorts are we showing this time round? Well, I can’t cut and past text from Facebook using my phone so here is a crappy JPEG:
We at Mostly Water would like to take the next step. Actually, the next leap. After 10 years of creating comedy in Edmonton, we’re pretty excited to have the chance of receiving $10,000 towards a webseries with an Alberta StoryHive grant.
