Jimmy Tingle: Humor and Hope for Humanity

BCA Plaza Theatre, 539 Tremont Street

“He is so cheerfully intelligent that he makes his audience optimistic in the face of appalling reality.”

Jimmy will take us on a hilarious and soul-searching journey from his Cambridge roots as an aspiring comic and street performer during the 1980’s to the Tonight Show, 60 Minutes II, Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, and a run for LT Governor of Massachusetts.

Jimmy Tingle will speak to the challenges of the day with comedy, compassion and common sense while delivering a very funny, passionate and purpose driven performance. If laughter is the best medicine, then Jimmy Tingle is the Surgeon General of political humor. He will make you laugh, think, and feel better. Just what the doctor ordered!
