Jimmy James hit the stage in 1987 where he played a tree in his year one production of Cinderella... his acting was wooden.
These days he attempts to emulate that original performance as an award winning television presenter, actor and voice over artist.
Currently presenting on ABC 24’s TV series Tonic, Jimmy has also hosted Eaton Alive for ABC 1’s How The Quest Was Won and featured as resident stuntman Mystery Jimmy on Channel V’s late night series Jabba’s Naughty Nitey.
Jimmy’s appeared in numerous short films and having always wanted to be an actual cartoon, Jimmy now provides the voice for Spud the teddy bear in a new cartoon series The Adventures Of Charlie Gribble. He also voiced numerous characters for the Nickelodeon TV Short The Surprise.
As an actor Jimmy’s worked with numerous professional theatre companies including Deckchair Theatre Co, Barking Gecko Theatre Co and Weeping Spoon Theatre. He's just returned from a 100% sell out theatre season in WA starring in award-winning playwright Damon Lockwood’s I Honestly Love You..
