The New York Times writes “more than comic wit, so cheerfully intelligent he makes his audience optimistic in the face of reality.” As seen on The Tonight Show, 60 Minutes, HBO and NPR, three-time “Best of Boston” Boston Magazine winner Jimmy Tingle will take us on a hilarious and soul-searching journey from his Cambridge roots as an aspiring comic and street performer to network television, Harvard University, and a run for public office. If laughter is the best medicine, then Jimmy Tingle is the Surgeon General of comedy. You will laugh, think, and feel better. Just what the doctor ordered!
