In his work as a singing mimic-artist he pays homage to history’s greats with superb accuracy – Elvis, Cab Calloway and Freddie Mercury to name just a few. Both his tribute characters and original creations are flawlessly maintained with acute detail and clever repartee.

Not only a frighteningly talented individual, but Jim is also passionate about entertainment and delivers his acts with professionalism and enthusiasm every time. With his intense charisma, audience rapport and good looks, it’s no surprise that Jim is in so much demand – by audiences and producers alike.
