    About me

    Jim Tavare is an internationally acclaimed actor and comedian with a highly distinguished career.

    Jim co-wrote and starred in ITV's 'The Sketch Show', which won a BAFTA and syndicated worldwide. To date, ʻThe Sketch Showʼ has been remade for audiences in seven different countries.

    He wrote and starred in six highly acclaimed short silent films for BBC2 called 'Jim Tavare Pictures Presents'. This was followed by his own comedy sketch series 'The Jim Tavare Show', a thirteen part series co-written with Ricky Gervais, who also starred.

    Following three appearances on The Royal Variety Performance, Jim performed at several private functions for the British Royal Family, including a private Christmas party for HRH Prince Charles and a Gala held at Highgrove in front of Her Majesty the Queen and thirteen Crowned Heads of State. Jim Tavare is renowned for being Prince Charles favourite comedian.

    His success as a stand-up comedian has spread to the United States. He was the winner of 'International Starsearch' (USA), had an episode of NBC's 'Wings' written around his act. He also holds the distinction of being the only overseas act ever to reach the final of NBC's 'Last Comic Standing'.

    As a finalist, he embarked on a 63 date national US tour with NBC as part of the ʻLast Comic Standing World Tourʼ.

    Jim Tavare's film debut came in 2004 when he played Tom the Innkeeper in 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban'. He has since made several US film and television appearances, which include landing a recurring role on Showtime's 'Californication' alongside David Duchovny and guest starring on NBC's 'Chuck'.
