Jimmie Walker

It was a very fun conversation with Jimmie Walker, who called in to promote his latest comedy series, “Hospital Arrest,” which is now on YouTube. ¬†We discussed the continuing popularity of “Good Times” (and the 1/4 of a cent checks he still gets in the mail), his early days in radio and stand-up comedy, and how a diverse group of comedians came together on a very low budget (all sharing one orange at the craft services table) to produce the new series.
