Jimmy Tingle is a comedian, commentator, actor and the founder of Humor for Humanity. He was a 2018 democratic candidate for Lt Governor of Massachusetts and received 41.3% of the vote in the Massachusetts primary in September of 2018.

One of the nation’s most popular political humorists, Tingle is the master of the good-natured, bi-partisan jab. Moving behind the headlines to uncover the bizarre truths of the American political system, he sheds new light on the absurdities that cross party lines. He offers a fresh look at the world—and challenges audiences to open their eyes to the humor embedded in their daily lives. Why does bottled water have an expiration date? Why do they say consumer confidence is down when confidence isn’t lacking—money is!

Feature film work includes Next Stop Wonderland; Boondock Saints; Head of State starring Chris Rock and Clear History starring Larry David. Tingle has the rare distinction of winning Boston Magazine’s “Best of Boston” in the “stand-up comedy” category and for “best alternative theater” as the producer and artistic director of Jimmy Tingle’s OFF BROADWAY Theater in Somerville.

He is the founder of a new social enterprise entitled “Humor for Humanity” which aspires to raise spirits, funds and awareness for nonprofits, charities and social causes through his work as a comedian, emcee and auctioneer. Always known for his intellectual curiosity, Tingle received his Master’s degree in Public Administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
