Growing up in the Black Hills of South Dakota, Jim Barber first began performing for audiences at the age of eleven. He discovered the theater while a student in high school, winning several state, one-act-play competitions. He continued his acting experience at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis where he earned his BA degree in Speech Communications with an emphasis on Broadcasting and Theater. Before graduating, Jim combined his theatrical, comedic, musical and production skills to create a unique Minneapolis based daily television show which he produced and co-hosted for nearly two years. This led to the development of his one-man comedy show which he has performed at nearly 2,000 colleges and universities nationwide as well as hundreds of corporate events of all types.
In addition to appearances at various comedy clubs, hotels, conventions, corporate and industrial shows and fairs, he was featured for two seasons on the General Jackson Showboat at Opryland U.S.A. in Nashville. His Armed Forces tours have taken him across the United States and to fifteen foreign countries. Jim Barber has now performed in every state in the U.
