James trained in improvisation at Improvolution, Second City, the Magnet Theatre and with Keith Johnstone. He’s performed in theatres and festivals throughout the Nation and in Europe. On television, he’s portrayed so many doctors that he feels qualified to give medical advice. His stage play THE POE MYSTERIES has been recently produced in regional theatres. His sitcom pilot script “HAS BEEN” was a semi-finalist at the LA Comedy Short Film Festival, Los Angeles Screenplay Competition and Moondnace International Film Festival.
He leads the Coney Island Mermaid Parade, every year, as the stilt walking Uncle Sam and recently swam the cold Atlantic with the Polar Bear Club.
