Jimmie Menezes is a journeyman comic from Northern California. He performs regularly up and down the West Coast in bars, coffee shops, theaters, nightclubs, comedy clubs, pool halls, motorcycle clubhouses, breweries and any other creative art space in between. He's taking over the world one applause break at a time. Jimmie has become a regular fixture on the Hempcon & High Times 420 comedy tours; he also regularly performs at Alcoholics Anonymous / Narcotics Anonymous recovery comedy events.
"If you're true to yourself onstage, you can perform for anyone; stand-up is honest like that", says Jimmie, explaining the dichotomy of gigging at events on such opposite ends of the sobriety spectrum.
Jimmie's a lifelong student of stand-up, cutting his teeth on Gallagher and Sinbad videos on BETA max as a child.
Early on in his career, Jimmie had sold tickets so he could open up for the likes of Russell Brand, Andy Dick & Bill Burr (to name a few) at the World Famous Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California, having a chance to learn by watching the best-of-the-best in the belly of the beast.
Jimmie's writing style, if you can call it that, consists of telling tales from his life. He's not so much of a premise, set-up, punchline comic these days, as a spending-time-laughing-with-a-buddy-at-a-party-talking-about-life comedian.
Jimmie's onstage persona can be described as the smart kid with ADHD in the back of classroom. Expect the perfect mix of book smarts and street smarts coupled with a unique sly-eyed Cheshire charm that only Jimmie can deliver.
