Jimmy Graham is the ‘Roundboy’ of Comedy! This real life, high-energy husband and father of four has a stage presence that pulls the audience in and bear hugs them! His unique observational comedy touches on everyday life experiences that everyone can relate to.
A native of southern New Jersey, Jimmy’s strong South Philly-influenced accent is a treat to listen to. Setting foot on the stage for the first time in February 2001, within five years Jimmy was headlining clubs, theaters, and casinos all across the country.
Jimmy became an original member of ‘The Murderers Row Show,’ a comedy troupe that includes members of Howard Stern’s radio show such as KC Armstrong, Jim Florentine, and The Reverend Bob Levy. The troupe later joined with national headliner Artie Lange, becoming the ‘Artie Lange And Friends Tour’ performing shows in Las Vegas, Boca Raton, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, and Los Angeles to name a few.
Jimmy has opened for other national headliners such as Jim Norton, Rich Vos, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Florentine, and Lisa Lampanelli. He is a regular in New York City appearing at such comedy clubs as Caroline’s On Broadway, The Improv, The New York Comedy Club, The Laugh Factory, and Gotham Comedy Club. The ‘Roundboy’ has also made several television and radio appearances including “The Ricki Lake Show” and “The Dr. Phil Show.”
Jimmy has appeared on Fox Television’s “The Keeler Show” and is currently working with Comedy Central on a new reality show (“The Man House”) along with two recently shot pilots, with WNBC (“Dead Air”) and TLC/BBC (“Honey, We’re Killing The Kids”). In addition, the ‘Roundboy’ has appeared in dozens of commercials including national ads for Dick’s Sporting Goods and The Dish Network.
