Speaker available for hire, based in Victoria
After a start in the entertainment industry as a Rock and Roll drummer, Jimmy discovered comedy quite by accident one night in the 1980’s – He’d been seduced by a slick, um, blackboard outside a pub (this was the 80’s, remember!) that said ‘Comedy Club’ – inside he saw people on stage doing what he’d been doing all his life. The verbal gladiator again awoke, and the rest, as they say, is in the next paragraph as this is a bio and that’s how they work. Fast forward to the present day and Jimmy Poulos is a strong presence in the Qld Comedy scene. It’s been a long and varied career, with some of the highlights, (right from the top), being:
Regular character Actor Channel 7’s Wombat – Jimmy was always the bad guy!
Presenter on Great South East (Also Channel 7)
Headliner on the FMV TV Comedy Special (Channel 7 again!)
TV Commercials for Yellow Taxi’s, Toyota, and a lot of other Really Big Companies, AND they appeared on ALL channels!
Jimmy has played almost every Comedy club to open (and close!) in Brisbane over the past 15 years. Along the way he’s headlined the Major Comedy Clubs around Australia and New Zealand, performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and developed a reputation as an excellent corporate MC and Comedian having entertained a varied clientele, which even includes Her Excellency, the Governor of Qld Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce.
