Stir Crazy Comedy Club presents the Legends of Stand Up Series!

These shows bring you the forefathers (and mothers) of stand up comedy in an intimate setting.

First up is the great Jimmie Walker!

Rising from the streets of New York's ghettos to television superstardom, Jimmie Walker personifies the great American success story. His catch phrase "Dyn-o-mite!" is part of the modern vernacular, and he became such a major celebrity in the 1970's that Time Magazine named him "Comedian of the Decade".

Jimmie was signed by CBS to perform each week as the audience warm-up for the sitcom "Carlucci's Department." He then accepted a part in a new urban-styled comedy series, "Good Times." This role would launch him into television superstardom. "Dyn-o-mite!" was the phrase that made him famous nationwide.

He also landed choice roles in films like "Airplane!" and "Airport '79", and was a regular on television shows like "The Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island". In recent years he's made scene-stealing appearances on "The George Lopez Show", "Everybody Hates Chris" with Chris Rock, and "Scrubs".
