Pretty Much the Best Comedy Show – Jim Tews

Saturday, May 27, 2023

Jim Tews was born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania. He joined the U.S. Coast Guard after high school and was stationed in Cleveland where he started stand-up comedy. After completing his enlistment and going to college, he moved to New York City to work as a comedian and writer. When the pandemic hit, while stuck inside, Jim taught himself to animate. He currently works as an independent animator and writer and is again regularly leaving the house to perform standup.

Jim has performed all over the U.S., and even in a few foreign countries. He’s been a part of several notable comedy festivals including San Francisco Sketchfest and Just For Laughs Montreal. His two live albums debuted in the top three comedy titles on the iTunes charts, and both receive regular play on satellite radio. He’s appeared on NBC, FX, and more. He continues to perform mostly in New York but is willing to travel to whatever other cities, states, or countries will have him.

In addition to his critically acclaimed standup comedy albums, his book, “Felines of New stork,” became a New York Times Bestseller.
