Jimmy’s fame stems from his reputation as one of TV’s funniest warm-ups. Getting audiences in the mood on Channel 4's Deal or No Deal; ITV's Loose Women; BBC Three's Two Pints and Coming of Age and Channel 5's The Justin Lee Collins Show, propelled him into the spotlight and secured his prominent position as headline act at comedy festivals across the UK.

From there, theatres and comedy clubs came calling and universities across the UK and beyond were booking him for student nights.
