Jimmy grew up in a working-class neighborhood in Cambridge. Jimmy’s father owned and drove taxicabs in Cambridge, ultimately become the owner of Yellow Cab of Newton. That experience coupled with his Catholic background, which focused on the social justice side of the Catholic faith, continues to be a significant influence in Jimmy’s life, politics, and world views.

Jimmy wanted to continue his education; he completed his Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
Tingle has the rare distinction of winning Boston Magazine’s “Best of Boston” awards in two different categories as a performer in the “stand-up comedy” category and as the founder and artistic director-producer of Jimmy Tingle’s OFF BROADWAY, which was named “best alternative theater” in 2007.
Jimmy is also the founder and CEO of a new social enterprise, Humor for Humanity. Humor for Humanity aspires to use entertainment for purposes beyond entertainment. Their mission is to help raise spirits, funds, and awareness for non-profits, charities, and social causes. “Our Mission is their Mission.”
