Jim Tavaré

Jim Tavaré is internationally renowned for his award winning comedy act featuring Bassie (his double bass). Jim is best known for co-writing and starring in The Sketch Show (ITV) (with Tim Vine & Lee Mack) and playing Tom the Innkeeper in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. He starred in his own TV series The Jim Tavaré Show (Channel 5) co-written with Ricky Gervais, and Jim Tavare Pictures Presents… (BBC2).

He’s also appeared on three Royal Variety Shows after becoming a favourite with HRH Prince Charles leading to Tavaré performing several private events for the Queen and other members of the Royal Family. He got to know and connect with Princess Diana over the years. By co-incidence the injuries he sustained in his car accident mirrored hers. This emphasizes the words of the surgeon that if this had happened 20 years ago, he would not have survived.

Jim became the only overseas act to reach the final of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and has appeared in several US TV shows and films including Californication, Chuck, Tosh.0, Jimmy Kimmel Live, I Spit on your Grave – Deja Vu and Tales of Frankenstein.
