The Comedy of Jimmie Walker
The "Good Times" role of the broadly strutting, wisecracking J.J. Evans would launch him into television stardom. "Dyn-o-mite!" was the phrase tht made him famous nationwide. He was the first winner of the NAACP Image Award, and won a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
Despite all Jimmie's success on the big and small screens, stand-up comedy remains his first love. Walker currently tours the country 35 - 45 weeks a year - performing live, and being a featured guest on game shows and late night television.
