Jim Short
Host Club: IMPROV - Addison, TX
"We caught Jim Short headlining at the Addison Improv where he was once again crowned by popular opinion the "Funniest Person in Dallas" during this all too brief stay. While an early career achievement, Jim delivered comedy that showed, once again, the wisdom of the original 1990's accolade. Jim Short may indeed be the funniest comedian on at least three continents let alone the comedy meca, Dallas. At 36 this Auzzie to Texas transplant kept the audience mesmerized with a dizzying barrage of floor pacing, mic-melting, side-splitting commentary and sarcastic impressions. Short was the name, however NOT an accurate indicator of Jim's comic creativity or the audiences engagement. Jim Short, the "Master of Proper Comedy" is "bloody funny", no translation necessary. He spoke nearly enough, the Queen's English, as he explored the rumor of a "Mexican Air Force", imitated Mic Jagger, Keith Richards, Ozzie Osborne, and The Crocodile Hunter. His imitations of a dangerous cobra and big eared BBC news anchor, left you reasonably sure you had just encountered cartoon-like Jim Short fabrications, extreme caricatures of a deeply funny comic reality. Next time Jim's in town I want to see every show, not just the last show." - Comedy Review by The Comedy Critic - The Comedy Critic
