At the age of 21, Jimmy was the youngest funny man ever to appear on Granada TV’s The Comedians. So to be featured on every show throughout the series was a great compliment to this young laughter maker.
Granada Television executives were amazed at the warmth and humour he generated and they firmly tip him for the top of his profession, describing him as a comedy genius. His quick fired wit, presented with impeccable timing, has enabled this cheeky faced comic to establish himself as a remarkable performer for someone so young.
It was this style that immediately attracted Sky TV to record his own 30 minute spot screened in April 1996. Jimmy, who has come a long way since being the highest scoring comedian on BBC TV’s Opportunity Knocks is equally at home on the stage as he is on television. Theatres, clubs and cabaret engagements over the past 6 years in England, Ireland and the Continent have contributed to the success he now enjoys.
His adaptability ensures that he can work to almost any audience – be it all male, mixed, to children or to adults. With his hilarious rapid fire humour, he quickly masters his audiences with an approach that defies his age beyond belief.
After several successful summer seasons in the South of England, Jimmy has now taken the After-dinner circuit by storm. Coupled with his success on the cabaret circuit, he is quickly establishing himself as a household name. Jimmy is guaranteed to make your event a success!
