Comedy for January9th at The Bridges
JILL Kimmel - The Headliner
This married mother of two has always had an appreciation for performing and making people laugh, but didn't discover her true calling of stand-up comedy until July of 2006. Since then, she’s worked with Jimmy Fallon, Norm Macdonald, Jeffrey Ross, Robert Schimmel and other great comedians at Stand-Up Live, the Improvs, The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store and other respected venues around the country. Jill was personally asked to emcee a fundraiser by world-renowned musician Nils Lofgren, who also performed at the event, and has been a favorite at the comedy events held by The Jack Morton Foundation, an Arizona-based group that raises money to
fund pediatric cancer research.
Jill is the only female in The Comedy Squadron, a group of five very funny comedians who perform for the U.S. military. In the spring of 2013, the group traveled to Germany, Belgium and England to provide some much-needed comedic relief and help boost morale at 8 different military bases. It
was the experience of a lifetime that Jill cherishes as her greatest comedic
accomplishment to date.
On the last Wednesday of every month, Jill books and hosts the "Comedy
Gold Showcase" at Stand-Up Live which culls together the best and
brightest from the Valley’s booming comedy scene. And every Tuesday night
you can catch Jill hosting her own comedy show at Dos Gringos, a sports
bar in Tempe, AZ, where the comedy is mediocre and the food is Mexican.
Plus, you can now hear Jill on the radio as the brains and voice behind the
weekly segment, “What A Mouth” on the syndicated, “Lu Valentino Show.”
6:20pm PST to hear Jill’s opinions on current events happening in
entertainment, sports and politics. If it’s annoying her, she wants you to
know about it.
Don’t miss this up and coming talent!
