Tonight Show veteran Brett Leake described Jimmy Meritt’s act as “Above the belt, between the ears comedy….smart material, energetically performed.” Jimmy Meritt spent his entire childhood staying up past his bedtime to watch “Late Night with David Letterman.” While in College, Jimmy dove into comedy head first. Thanks to his perseverance in the active and ever growing Washington, D.C. comedy scene, this gifted comedian quickly found himself taking the stage, sharpening his skills seven nights a week. With his likeable stage presence and strong emphasis on writing, Jimmy rapidly became a crowd favorite with both discerning audience members, and fellow comedians. Since then, he’s been a crowd favorite at clubs, coffee-houses, Colleges, and corporate events. It has also been his honor to open for esteemed professionals such as Saturday Night Live’s Kevin Nealon, as well as the cast of ABC’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” With his geeky charm and a host of unique, yet accessible topics, Jimmy Meritt’s clean comedy is sure to be a stand-out at any show. He is currently also touring with the Comedy Project and just finished a 30-state run of colleges and universities throughout the United States.
