This show is a funny, thought-provoking and hopeful look at contemporary life and politics through his experience as a comedian, commentator and 2018 political candidate for LT Governor.
The show will answer the question "why would a comedian run for office" as it illuminates the 2018 campaign of Jimmy Tingle with passion, purpose and a sense of humor. As the nation looks ahead to the upcoming presidential campaign of 2020, Jimmy Tingle's 20/20 Vision will entertain, enlighten and challenge the audience to move beyond the current politics of presidential tweets, sound bites, and the nightly news cycle and into the realm of long-term thinking and life-affirming possibility. Through comedy, commentary and audience Q & A, Jimmy aspires to contribute to the cultural conversation in a positive, hopeful and funny way as America strives to create, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, "a more perfect union."
Jimmy Tingle is a comedian, commentator and the founder of Humor for Humanity. He was a 2018 candidate for Lt Governor of Massachusetts and received 41.3% of the vote in the Massachusetts primary on September 4th, 2018.
