Jimmy Dunn was working as a bank teller in Gloucester, Mass, when he stopped in a club next door after work to check out live stand-up comedy, and/or the integrity of a common wall that the club shared with the bank's vault. Somehow, Jimmy convinced the owner to give him a shot at making the patrons laugh and was so successful that he soon became the house emcee, working for beer and fried clams.
Since then, Jimmy has traveled the world making people laugh. He's become a regular at top clubs across the country, including venues in NY, LA, Las Vegas, Atlantic City and Boston. He's made TV appearances on Comedy Central, CMT and NESN and was the Boston Correspondent for "Jimmy Kimmel Live" for the historic 2004 Sox-Yankees series. Recently he performed for the first time as part of Denis Leary's "Comics Come Home" event at the Agganis Arena in Boston, which brings the best national comedy talent back to Boston to raise money for the fight against cancer.
Jimmy has also appeared in a few movies, most notably sharing a jail cell with Matt Damon in the film, "Stuck on You."
Recently, Jimmy was cast in a pilot for CBS called "The McCarthy's" about an Irish-Catholic, basketball-loving family from Boston. He played the big, dumb brother, Sean, and impressed Director Fred Savage with his comic timing and his ability to eat 26 ham sandwiches during a morning shoot.
He's been so successful, in fact, that he hardly ever thinks about that weak section of the wall on the south-east corner of the bank anymore.
