James started stand-up in 2007 with the People's Republic of Komedy in Seattle, WA. He co-produced Laff Hole, Cracked-up, and the Bumbershoot Northwest comedy stage. For the past two years he has been chasing the comedy dragon in New York City. Sometimes you spend 27 years not writing, producing, or performing stand-up comedy. Then you try an open mic, dump your miserable girlfriend and decide to quit being a terrible real estate agent. That's comedy. The rest is a dream: Bumbershoot, Bridgetown comedy festival, and the cosmic leap to New York city.
