Jones was born Albert Simmonds on February 9, 1938, in the English city of Southampton. He grew up in Rainham, Essex. As a child, he went to a Catholic school and initially wanted to become a priest.
Jones’ first appearance was at the Dagenham Working Men’s Club in 1962. He performed on the same programme as Max Bygraves. In 1970, Granada TV discovered Jones in a Walthamstow pub and hired him for their popular Saturday night show, The Comedians.
Jones’ catchphrase “Kin’ ell” was a pun on footballer George Kinnell.
Jones received what is believed to be the first gold record for a comedy album in 1983. This happened after his 1981 album Live from the Talk of East Anglia sold 100,000 copies. He was the first stand-up comedian to release a video of one of his live performances. In the early 1980s, three of his videos were in the top ten in the United Kingdom.
At his peak, Jimmy Jones performed up to 275 nights per year, either as a headliner or as a support act for established acts such as Chas ‘n’ Dave.
Jimmy was a pioneer of the comedy video, despite or perhaps because of a lack of TV exposure. Following the success of his live show albums and cassettes in the 1970s, it was a natural progression.
These were largely self-published recordings designed to be sold at his gigs, with titles like Live At Kings Club, It Could Happen, and All the Breast, and as such became quickly copied and highly collectible. The official produced Live From the Talk Of East Anglia sold 100,000 copies and received a gold disc.
His debut video, Live at Kings, Eastbourne, was released in 1982 and featured songs as well as stand-up routines. It sold over 75,000 copies through his live shows alone before being reissued by Polygram in 1993. A Cultural Night Out, Harder and Faster, and Twice As Outrageous were all big sellers in the 1990s.
Despite his dissatisfaction with what he saw at the blinkered TV establishment, Jimmy had made sporadic appearances on shows such as The Comedians, The Freddie Starr Show, Six O’Clock Live, and Battle Of The Comics over the years. He was also interviewed for the late-night ITV show Funny Business about his life and work.
Jones made a triumphant debut in Las Vegas in 1986, followed by a sell-out season at London’s West End’s Strand Theatre in 1989. Jimmy was named Comedian of the Year in the Daily Mirror’s prestigious Club Mirror awards the following year. He was the first “non-TV” comic to win the award, which had previously been won by Lenny Henry, Freddie Starr, and Bob Monkhouse. Jimmy achieved a personal goal in 1991 when he performed a sell-out one-man show at the London Palladium.
In the twilight of his career, Jimmy has gone corporate via an act he calls The Alternative Jimmy Jones, dividing his time between his country pile in Essex and a holiday villa in Spain.
He came up with the idea for a show to satisfy more refined tastes as a big supporter of a variety of charities and much in demand for after-dinner speeches, etc. The result is an amusing collection of showbiz stories and anecdotes that, while not quite Enid Blyton, is a departure from the usual style.
Despite his massive fan base, Jimmy is rarely seen on television these days. This is largely due to television producers’ concerns about his outrageous reputation. Jimmy claims “It never ceases to amaze me- I’d never do anything outrageous on television. I have 12 grandchildren and would never intentionally offend them. It’s especially ironic given that I’ve appeared on live shows without causing any problems “.
Now This is a Very True Story, Jones’ autobiography, was written with the help of Garry Bushell and was published in 2010.
