COMEDY NIGHT: One Year Anniversary with very special guests Jimmie “JJ” Walker and Tiffany Baker – TWO SHOWS!!Bright Box Theater and Kaleidoscope Comedy are proud to celebrate our first year of bringing outrageous laughter to Winchester! In celebration, we’re delighted to present very special guest
Jimmie “JJ” Walker!
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’s television work would lead to movie roles, like boxer Bootney Farnsworth in “Let’s Do it Again,” co-starring with entertainment luminaries Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby. Jimmie also released a smash comedy album, “Dyn-o-mite!” that went gold. When “Good Times” ended in 1979, Aaron Spelling offered Walker a starring role in the short-lived “B.A.D. Cats” and returned to cast him again in 1983 in “At Ease”, an ABC series about a bunch of United States Army misfits. He also landed choice roles in films like “Airplane!” and “Airport ’79″, and was a regular on television shows like “The Love Boat” and “Fantasy Island”. In recent years he’s made scene-stealing appearances on “The George Lopez Show”, “Everybody Hates Chris” with Chris Rock, and “Scrubs”.
Despite all Jimmie’s success on the big and small screens, stand-up comedy remains his first love. Walker currently tours the country 35 to 45 weeks a year performing live, and guesting on game shows and late night television. In his spare time he writes scripts for TV and movies, and continues to enjoy a comedy career now approaching five decades.
Boston born daughter of a Golden Gloves boxer turned teamster, and a single mother turned professional poker player, Tiffany Baker was raised thinking on her feet. She knows how to throw a punch, steal your wallet and make you fall in love. She has 8 brothers and one sister. With so much struggle, the awesome thing Miss Tiffany knew how to get into, TROUBLE. The best way to get out of trouble? BE VERY FUNNY! Tiffany sought sanctuary in performing from a very young age. Three.
After Majoring in Theater arts in college she headed to NYC and experianced first hand the 9/11 attacks. As the city rebuilt and pulled together, she then landed small parts in Charlie Wilson’s War, Spiderman 3, and the Soprano’s. Her film Immaculate Misconception won in “The Big Apple Film Festival” and then brought her to LA for best supporting actress at “The Beverly Hills Film Festival”.
Tiffany currently performes in LA in major comedy clubs from The World Famous Laugh Factory , The Comedy Store, and Hollywood Improv.
