Jim Mendrinos is a seasoned, professional stand-up comedian. Starting at the age of 19, the audience has seen Jim grow up before their eyes, appreciating his unique outlook on life every step of the way. The audience goes from the laughter of recognition, as Jim covers the things they were talking about ‘just today,’ to the laughter inspired by delighted wonder as they experience new things through the flat out funny observations of this trusted performer.

He is respected in the industry, so much so that he was asked to author “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Comedy Writing” (Alpha Press, © 2004.) Jim’s comedy has been featured on stand-up stages around the world. He’s brought his special brand of funny to Current TV,  SiTV, AXS, Comedy Central, The Fox News Network, HBO and the BBC. His hour-long special, NOT DEAD YET, is available via Amazon.

As a teacher Jim has taught comedy and comedy writing workshops all over the world. His past list of students includes Emmy Winners, award winning entertainers and some of this generation's best comedians. He is one of the most sought after Stand Up Teachers in NYC, having taught at the prestigious Gotham Comedy Club for over a decade. Currently many students learn from him daily via WRITING CHEAT CODES, a daily writing prompt / mini-lesson email daily via subscription. In short, Jim is the go to person for comics looking to improve their skill sets.
