About the event
Born on the banks of the Mighty Miramichi River, Jimmy MacKinley has been a performer since 2006 after landing his first role in New Brunswick short film Mailbox Romance for which he took home the Best Actor Award at the Silverwave Film Festival. After being cast in a variety of roles in a number of shorts and feature films as well as a popular music video by Classified, he later discovered his next passion; standup comedy. In October 2011, he took the stage for the first time at an open mic comedy night at Wilser’s Room in Fredericton, NB. He was nervous but kept at it month after month, writing new material and developing his act. His hard work started to pay off a few years later after being hired by comedian Gerry Dee to join him on his New Brunswick Stand Up Tour 2 years in a row. This led to performing a nationwide broadcast with CBC Radio One on their comedy show Laugh Out Loud as well as selling out the historical Vogue Theater 6 times in his hometown of Miramichi.
