About Jim Florentine:
Jim Florentine is a stand-up comedian, actor, writer, comedian, voice artist, and performer, who is currently co-hosting VH1 Classic’s hit heavy metal talk show series That Metal Show alongside Eddie Trunk and now label-mate Don Jamieson. He is best known for his work on Comedy Central’s show Crank Yankers where he performed the voice of Special Ed, a mentally challenged teenager, and Bobby Fletcher, a despicable, alcoholic slob who is the older cousin of Ed.
Jim Florentine has also been in involved in shows such as HBO Inside the NFL, Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Chelsea Lately, The Howard Stern Radio & TV Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, MTV Music Video Awards, Spike TV Video Game Awards, HBO’s Down and Dirty Comedy Show, and The Apprentice just to name a few.
His latest CD, Awful Jokes From My First Comedy Notebook, is available now. That CD also landed at #3 on the Itunes Charts and # 10 on the Comedy Billboard Charts. Jim is only the 3rd comedian ever to have 2 CD’s land in the top 10 in the same year! The concept for this CD was that Jim stumbled across his first comedy notebooks from when he first started doing comedy back in the early 90′s. He couldn’t believe how bad his early jokes were and decided to share them with his fans and went into a recording studio and read his awful jokes directly out of his notebook. The CD has received massive critical acclaim in the comedy world for taking a huge risk.
