    Imagine George W. Bush, David Letterman, John Kerry, Larry King, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Brokaw, Randy Travis, Johnny Carson, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Willie Nelson, Ted Koppel, Andy Rooney, Jesse Jackson, Jay Leno, Keith Jackson, and a host of others performing for you! When Jim hits center stage, you never know who’ll turn up!

    While other comedians recycle “stock” jokes, Jim takes his inspiration from the events of the day, adds his special brand of magic, and delivers a performance so up-to-the-minute, it’s no wonder his material often appears in the monologues of The Tonight Show and The Late Show with David Letterman. Jim’s unique perspective on the news will captivate you!

    A performer who does his homework, Jim wins rave reviews for incorporating the names of attendees and “insider” information into his customized routines. One of the most popular features of his presentations, Jim’s humorous commentaries are so on-target, he’ll have you believing he’s been hiding out at the office water cooler. Every performance is truly one of a kind.

    No stranger to the concert stage, Jim has opened for such celebrities as Paul Anka, Barbara Mandrell, Jay Leno, Crystal Gayle, Louise Mandrell, and Frankie Valli. He also appears regularly in comedy clubs and college campuses across the country, earning him a substantial following. When not performing, Jim can be heard on a variety of national and regional commercials for Pizza Hut, Ford Trucks, McDonald’s, GMC, Kroger, and Wendy’s. He’s also a featured announcer on the Cartoon Network, and provides humorous commentary on several national radio talk shows.
