Jim Florentine is perhaps best known for co-hosting VH1 Classic's heavy-metal talk show series That Metal Show, but he’s also renowned for his work on Comedy Central's Crank Yankers where he performed the voice of Special Ed and Bobby Fletcher. Recently, Jim has appeared in Amy Schumer’s hit movie Trainwreck as well as on her critically acclaimed FX TV series Inside Amy Schumer and Louie C.K.’s Louie—for which Jim was submitted for an Emmy® as Best Supporting Actor.

Jim has appeared in the award-winning feature film A Little Help starring Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesley of The Office). Jim plays the character Brian, who is Jenna Fischer's love interest in the film.

Fittingly, Jim has opened for many heavy-metal greats: Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Stone Sour, Black Label Society and more. And, in June 2012, Jim just hosted the world-wide airing MTV OMA Awards.

In 2011, Jim released his stand-up CD Cringe N Purge on Metal Blade Records—it landed at number three on the Itunes Charts and number five on the Comedy Billboard Charts. In 2012, Jim released his second CD on Metal Blade Records called Awful Jokes From My First Comedy Notebook. That CD also ranked highly on both the Itunes Charts the Comedy Billboard Charts.

Jim has a weekly podcast called Comedy, Metal, Midgets—one of the most popular comedy Podcasts out there, constantly landing in the weekly top 20.

In 2016, Jim released two comedy specials. I'm Your Savior was a critically acclaimed one-man show about his about his life and the death of his ex-girlfriend. His second special, released the same year, A Simple Man, debuted at number one on the comedy charts.

This year, Florentine has a brand new book coming out and another hilarious comedy special.
