Jim Tavaré moved to London during the mid 80’s. On a whim, a friend suggested he try stand-up comedy. Jim went to the infamous Tunnel Palladium Club to perform a set which went so badly that he was asked to come back to feature in his own segment called ‘Get Jim Tavaré off in under 3 minutes’. Ironically this became hugely popular. Eventually Jim decided to incorporate his double bass into the act. The audience loved it, and he never looked back. He soon took a show ‘Masterclass’ to perform at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Here he caught the attention of NBC producers who wrote an episode of the series Wings based around his act. Jim has performed three times at The Royal Variety Command Performance. At special request, he performed at HRH Prince Charles private Christmas party. He later appeared in front of Her Majesty The Queen at a Gala held at Highgrove in aid of The King of Greece Birthday. Jim is renowned for his proud title of being Prince Charles’ favourite comedian. In 2001 Steve Coogan invited Jim to be part of The Sketch Show team for ITV in the UK. The first series packed with over 30 sketches went on to win a prestigious BAFTA Award. There followed a major acting role as Tom the Innkeeper in ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.’ In the USA, Jim featured in Season 6 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing where he was voted the 4th finalist. This made him the first ever International act to make it through to the final show. He has since established a film career in the USA.
