Rising from the streets of New York’s ghettos to television superstardom, Jimmie Walker personifies the great American success story. His catch phrase “Dyn-o-mite!” is part of the modern vernacular, and he became such a major celebrity in the 1970′s that Time Magazine named him “Comedian of the Decade”.
Walker spent a year as the youngest MC in the history of the world famous Apollo Theater in Harlem.
Jimmie accepted a part in a new urban-styled comedy series, “Good Times.” This role would launch him into television superstardom. “Dyn-o-mite!” was the phrase that made him famous nationwide. He was the first winner of the NAACP Image Award, and won a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. He appeared on The Mac Davis Show, Donny and Marie, The John Davidson Show, The Merv Griffin Show, Dinah, The Mike Douglas Show, The Hollywood Squares, and the Match Game.
