About Jimmy Shubert

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.
A veteran of stage and screen, Jimmy is one of the rare triple threats
in today’s comedy scene. “Whether it’s in a sold-out three thousand
seat theater, or in the middle of a war zone in Afghanistan, “my
mission is to make ‘em laugh as hard as I can.”
Jimmy has produced three albums of his material and his own
concert performance DVD, which showcase his hilarious take on the
world at large. 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.
Jimmy combines the outlook of a modern-day Archie Bunker with an
utterly real world sensibility to create signature bits on Starbucks,
airport security, the dumbing down of America and relationships.
On screen, Jimmy has played everything from a prison guard in a
hostage crisis to a murder victim on “Monk.” Jimmy has worked with
such marquee names as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron,
Katie Holmes, Robin Williams and recently did a guest star on CBS
comedy “2 Broke Girls.” He plays Betty Whites neighbor in the NBC
show “Off Their Rockers.” He’s made three appearances on HBO’s
hit comedy “Entourage” after five years in a recurring role on CBS’s
“King of Queens.” He has also made appearances on such shows as
“Heist,” “ER,” “Reno 911,” “Rude Awakenings,” “Angel,” “Lucky,”
“New Car Smell,” “Sonny With a Chance”,” “Just Shoot Me” and
“Youth In Revolt.”
2 Jimmy Shubert Biography
Jimmy recorded his first half-hour special for Comedy Central at the
Hudson Theater in New York City, which plays in heavy rotation on
the Network. 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 perfored and written material for
acts like Yakov Smirnoff, Jimmy Walker, and Andrew “Dice” Clay. It
was the Comedy Store where he later met Sam Kinison. Kinison liked
Shubert’s chutzpah and included him as one of the original “Outlaws
of Comedy” which he toured with for five years, playing major casinos
in Las Vegas and other venues like the Universal Amphitheater in
front of audiences as large as 6,500 people. After a well recognized
performance at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in
Montreal, he was spotted by the late Brandon Tartikoff who signed
Jimmy to a holding deal to develop a pilot sitcom for him to star in at
20th Century Fox.
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. As AllMusic.com put it, “His confidence and
lucid delivery enhances his humor, making even his most perverse
moments hilarious.”
