American comedian Jimmy Tingle was raised in Cambridge, MA. He attributes his eye for the absurd and his acerbic wit to his early environment. Its great social, political and economic diversity has given him substantial fodder for his comic material. He began his career at an open mike and, since then, has closed "CBS’ 60 Minutes II" with humorous thoughts, has appeared on TV in "The Tonight Show," "Larry King Weekend," "The Late Show with Conan O’Brien," "The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder,", the American Comedy Awards and his own HBO comedy special. He has been featured on National Public Radio’s "Fresh Air" and "Talk of the Nation" and has been a weekly contributor to a nationally syndicated politically charged radio program, "Chat and Chew" from Austin, TX. Critics and audiences alike have given rave reviews to his one-man shows that have run coast to coast. His film credits include an appearance as the neighborhood bartender in "Next Stop Wonderland" as well as documentaries, such as the 1991 Emmy Award-winning film on art censorship, "Damned in the USA."
