In Jimmy Shubert’s backstory, we learned that he got his start working as the doorman at The Comedy Store. Since then he’s worked his way up to headlining all over the world. He’s put out a DVD, three comedy CDs, a Comedy Central special, and when he’s not doing stand up, he’s had a long list of appearances on television and in film. He hopes to win because it would be great validation after so many years as a road comic. He’s also appeared on The Ron and Fez Show, and you can get his podcast, the Jimmy Shubert Show, on itunes.

Heard during his LCS Set: “I was in a diner this morning getting breakfast, they had something on the menu called a protein scramble. In my head I’m going, that sounds healthy. Then I read the ingredients. Basically it was an egg omelet with chunks of chicken meat in it. Chicken omelet. Which is wrong. You don’t take the eggs out of the chicken, and then cook the chicken, and put it in the eggs. That’s too much chicken. Who the hell is back there cooking? Some kind of chicken serial killer?….That’s an omelet that spans two generations. Thats’ not breakfast, thats a vendetta. Whose ordering breakfast Tony Soprano?”
