Whether it’s stealing scenes in major motion pictures or blowing the roof off any comedy club from Hawaii to Halifax, Jimmy Shubert is stand-up comedy’s next breakout star. His full contact comedy has led him from headlining The Improv and Comedy Store in Hollywood, to his own stand-up special on Comedy Central, with five years on King of Queens and several appearances on Entourage for good measure. His hour-long stand-up special Alive N’ Kickin made Top Ten Best Stand Up comedy DVD’s for punchlinemagazine.com, the leading comedy web site in the industry. On screen, Jimmy has played everything from a prison guard in a hostage crisis to a murder victim on Monk. He plays Betty Whites neighbor in the NBC show Off Their Rockers and has also made appearances on such shows as 2 Broke Girls, Heist, ER, Reno 911, Rude Awakenings, Angel, Lucky, New Car Smell, Sonny With a Chance, Just Shoot Me and Youth In Revolt 2. Jimmy recorded his first half-hour special for Comedy Central at the Hudson Theater in New York City. In Addition, he has released two break-out comedy albums, Animal Instincts and Pandemonium, produced by Grammy-winning producer Dan Schlissel. He has performed all over the United States, Canada, Ireland, Mexico, The Bahamas, Korea and, along with Drew Carey, performed for the troops in the Middle East and Afghanistan as part of the America Supports You program for the Defense Department and Armed Forces Entertainment.
Jimmy is based in LA where he has performed and written material for acts like Yakov Smirnoff, Jimmy Walker, and Andrew “Dice” Clay. Jimmy’s comedy routine is usually performed with an observational point of view, in comedic short-story form, and typically focuses on poking fun at pop culture.
