You have to be joking? Jim Tavare


The joke that I loved but no one else did?

That sounds like my entire act…

Actually, in my case, the opposite to be true. I find that the jokes I hate are the ones the audience love.

For years my opening routine involved a faulty mic and a plug socket that blows up on stage. I’d have to set it up before the audience arrived -which was a pain. Sometimes the pyro would cause the smoke alarms to go off resulting in me finishing the show in the car park after the audience were evacuated.

As soon as I gave up the bit everyone insisted I bring it back!


The joke that worked but you are not proud it had.

My wife of 11 years…and that’s quite old for a filipino…”

Good evening my name is Jim. Old friends still call me Ginge….. I’ll show you afterwards”


The comedians that made you want to be a comedian.

Víctor Borge for the musical comedy.

Tommy Cooper for his funny bones

Steven Wright for his Sheer comedic intellect.


The Last thing that made me cry with laughter

Medical Marijuana.
