Event Description

Jimmie Walker:    Rising  from the streets of New York's ghettos to television superstardom,  Jimmie Walker personifies the great American success story. His  catch phrase "Dyn-o-mite!" is part of the modern vernacular, and he  became such a major celebrity in the 1970's that Time Magazine named  him "Comedian of the Decade.The  series of successes gave Walker the confidence to give up his day  job, and in 1972 he was working as the main attraction in all the  top comedy clubs. His soaring popularity prompted Time Magazine to  name him "Comedian of the Decade".        Spotted  by the casting director for Norman Lear of "All in the Family" fame,  Jimmie accepted a part in Lear's new urban-styled comedy series,  "Good Times." The role of the broadly strutting, wisecracking J.J.  Evans would launch him into television superstardom. "Dyn-o-mite!"  was the phrase that made him famous nationwide. As "Good Times"  enjoyed a six year run, Walker's fame grew exponentially. He was the  first winner of the NAACP Image Award, and won a Golden Globe  nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
