Biography

Jimmy Shubert has built an impressive resume as an actor, both in film and on television. As a comedian, he is recognized as one of the most successful comedians working today, headlining comedy clubs, casinos and theaters across the country. Now Jimmy is adding another title to his resume of producer. This past year was a labor of love for the actor a short film, "Alive N' Kickin," which is a companion piece to his new hour-long stand-up comedy special due out in 2008, which he wrote and produced.

It was Jimmy's scene-stealing performance as the lollipop-sucking strip club bouncer in Columbia Pictures' "Go", directed by Doug Liman, that jumpstarted his film career in 1999. In 2001, he starred in a short film, "Velocity Rules," for producer Brett Ratner and director Patty Jenkins ("Monster") which premiered at the 2001 AFI Film Fest as well as the Telluride Film Festival. He has since landed roles in numerous other films such as Jerry Bruckheimer's "Coyote Ugly," Fox Searchlight Pictures' "One Hour Photo", starring Robin Williams, "The Italian Job" starring Charlize Theron, Ed Norton, and Mark Walhberg, and "Mr. and Mrs. Smith", starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. He recently starred in a short film entitled "Wedding Jimmy" which is currently making its rounds on the festival circuit, as well as a feature entitled "Cutoff" starring Amanda Brooks, Faye Dunaway and Malcolm McDowell.

On the small screen, He just completed filming on the untitled "Cedric the Entertainer" pilot. He also has been seen in a recurring role (17 episodes), his character appropriately named Jimmy, on CBS's "King of Queens" for five seasons. He has also made appearances on such shows as "The Loop" "Entourage," "Heist," "ER," "Monk," "Reno 911," "Rude Awakenings," "Angel," "Once and Again," "Lucky," "New Car Smell," "Secret Service Guy," and "Youth In Revolt," to name a few.

In September 2005, Jimmy recorded his first half-hour special for Comedy Central at the Hudson Theater in New York City, which received rave reviews from critics and a standing ovation from the discerning New York audience. In addition, he has released two comedy albums, "Animal Instincts" and "Pandemonium," produced by Grammy-winning producer Dan Schlissel. He donates a portion of the proceeds to "The Joe Casey Jr. Scholarship Fund," in memory of his deceased cousin. He has performed in Canada, Ireland, Korea and in 2006, he along with Drew Carey, performed for the troops in the Middle East as part of the "America Supports You" program for the Defense Department and Armed Forces Entertainment.

Growing up as the son of a Philadelphia Detective wasn't easy for Jimmy, as he and his band of six brothers were always getting into trouble. Since Jimmy was the middle child, most of his childhood days were spent wearing bloodstained hand-me downs from his older brothers. He attended the Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts, majoring in Drama. It was from those experiences in acting class that Jimmy knew he wanted to be an entertainer. Always the class clown and performer, Jimmy performed magic tricks for his friends and family at 9 years of age. By the age of 15, he had become an accomplished professional magician. He later channeled that energy into stand-up comedy.

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, Louie Anderson and Andrew "Dice" Clay. It was the Comedy Store where he later met Sam Kinison and they became friends. 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. In 1997, 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 short-story form, and typically focuses on poking fun at current events. He describes himself as a cross between Denis Leary and Dennis Miller., "his confidence and lucid delivery enhances his humor, making even his most perverse moments hilarious."
