Jimmy Shin Flunked as a Lawyer, Thrives as Comedian

Jimmy Shin was set on being a successful lawyer, but the pressure threw him into a tailspin. Find out how he got out and now loves what he does, working with all his friends. An amazing turnaround and second chance at life.

Jimmy has been mixing his musical and comedic talents all of his life. After graduating from California Western School of Law, Jimmy decided to take a more humorous path.

While in Seattle, Jimmy won the honor of “Rookie Comedian of the Year” in the Seattle International Comedy Competition in 2005 and was advised by Ron Reid (The Producer of the competition) to move to Los Angeles. Although urged by his parents to become a lawyer, Jimmy decided to take a leap of faith and pursue his dreams of becoming a comic in LA.

After moving to Los Angeles, Jimmy has been performing all around the country and producing shows at The World Famous Comedy Store. He has performed regularly at the Improv, Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store. His break came when he performed three times on The Tonight Show.

His parents finally acknowledged that he was a real Comedian when they saw him perform on The Tonight Show and began supporting his decision to pursue a career in Entertainment. He has also appeared on the HBO Series “LUCK”, The Carson Daly New Year’s Special 2015 and most recently on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
