Not working with Jimmy is a like sitting on a winning lottery ticket and then forgetting about it while staring into the sunset, wondering when life will happen. Jimmy is not only life, he's also what's happening. Anything he touches turns to gold so RUN in his way and bless yourself for having a taste level. In all seriousness, I'm really picky with who I trust in anything comedy related, and when it comes to comedy, Jimmy is IT. I've watched Jimmy perform since USC days and have never stopped obsessing. I'd bet you big $ he will be too busy to work with you by the time this website so goes up...so why are you still reading this? Book him! You're worth it! #FowlieYourDreams

I first met Jimmy while i was studying at the Groundlings. When the opportunity came up to audition for the CBS Comedy Showcase 2018 I was told Jimmy was the coach I needed to help me create and curate my characters. Although I didn't get in, I loved working with Jimmy so much that over the last year we have co written multiple musical parodies together, one of which he directed. For my audition for the CBS Comedy Showcase 2019, Jimmy and I worked intensively on workshopping and experimenting to find my comedic voice. With the help of Jimmy's witty, specific (and always fun) criticism of my work during intense workshopping sessions, I am now a cast member in the CBS showcase. From running comedic auditions, creating sketch characters to co writing comedy material I can safely say Jimmy has helped me to find my comedic voice here in America. I love working with Jimmy and I'm so grateful to have him as a coach. I look forward to every session we have because I know I'll be laughing just as much as I'll be learning.

Jimmy is such a great coach! He always comes in with a fresh haircut and the energy to get your improv juices flowing. I once said the words “praise my prostate” in scene in front of Jimmy. I clearly hit my improv peak. Jimmy CARES. Jimmy LAUGHS. Jimmy SCREAMS. Hire him!
-Joe Rodriguez

Jimmy brings tons of energy and fun to his classes! I never feel overwhelmed in his class because he gives workable notes and really clearly helps you apply them to your scenes. I feel like Jimmy is always on my side and rooting for me to do well, which makes it fun to take risks and fail joyfully. AND for a bonus he's a beautiful human inside and out!
