performing july 30 - august 5
Headliner: Jimmy Shubert
Jimmy started performing right out of high school in comedy clubs around the Philly area. He later moved to Los Angeles and started working at the Comedy Store, performing and writing material for acts like Yakov Smirnoff, Jimmy Walker and Louie Anderson, and Andrew "Dice" Clay.
It was the Comedy Store where he later met Sam Kinison, and they became friends after Jimmy drove his motorcycle onto the Comedy Store's main room stage and proclaimed to the startled Kinison, "Last call. By the way, your ride is here." Kinison liked Shubert's cockeyed 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. This experience he says was more like "being a rock star than being a comedian."
He continues to perform as a popular and regularly requested headliner in A-List clubs for live audiences nationwide about thirty-six weeks out of the year. He has appeared as recurring character "Jimmy" on CBS's prime-time hit series, “The King of Queens”, starring Kevin James, for four consecutive seasons. Jimmy starred in a short film entitled, VELOCITY RULES for producer Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, Rush Hour II, Family Man & Money Talks), which premiered at the 2001 AFI Film Fest and the Telluride Film Fest. He then went on to film MR & MRS SMITH, his second film with director Doug Liman, starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
