Although Canadian and American audiences have been howling at Jim McNally for over a decade now, he is becoming more and more recognized lately after stellar performances at the Ha!lifax Comedy Festival and on CTV's "Comedy NOW!". In 2005, he was the first comedian to get a standing ovation at Ottawa's Absolute Comedy and was asked back to headline thier first anniversary weekend. The following is his 'bio blurb', which describes him pretty well, but really, you've gotta see him.
Jim is a comedian with an irreverent outlook that blends big city wit with small town cheekiness. His Irish, story-telling roots shine through in his performances which weave observations of the everyday into stories from his own life to highlight the absurdities of the world we live in. Jim's spontaneous and engaging style, quick wit, and knack for seeing the outlandish make him a natural, versatile performer who leaves audiences doubled over with laughter and wanting more.
