Raised in New York City, Jimmy Martinez is an actor, writer and producer who created his first break in comedy at the age of fifteen. In the years since, he’s gone on to be a featured performer on Jamie Foxx's Laffapalooza, and has toured with the likes of Corey Holcomb, Patrice O'Neal, Tommy Davidson and Kevin Hart.

Towering at 6'5", Brooklyn-born comedic actor, writer and producer Jimmy Martinez boldly bellows his unique brand of Alternative Urban comedy that has made him a remarkable figure in stand up amongst his peers. Raised in Harlem, Martinez created his first break in comedy at the age of fifteen--standing outside the famous Uptown Comedy Club telling jokes as people exited the venue after the shows. Jimmy was eventually rewarded for his relentless passion when the Brown Brothers gave him the chance to perform on the legendary Harlem stage. After performing at Jamie Foxx's Laffapalooza, Jimmy toured and opened for other greats such as Corey Holcomb, Patrice O'Neal, Tommy Davidson and Kevin Hart.
