JIM BELUSHI AND THE BOARD OF COMEDY
Jim Belushi began his acting career in Chicago, Illinois studying at three of the top theaters: The Goodman, The Apollo, and The Second City. After his two-year stint on Saturday Night Live, Jim appeared in over 75 movies, including Red Heat, About Last Night, The Principal, and K-9, and five television series, including eight years on According to Jim and, most recently, CBS's The Defenders. Recent feature film credits include “North of Hell,” “The Whole Truth” (directed by Oscar-nominated Courtney Hunt), “The Hollow Point,” “Katie Says Goodbye,” the award- winning festival favorite “Sollers Point,” and appearing opposite Kate Winslet in Woody Allen’s “Wonder Wheel.” In 2011, Jim gained rave reviews on Broadway as Harry Brock in Born Yesterday. However, drama and comedy are not the only facets to Jim’s breadth of talents. For the past fifteen years, he has been singing, dancing, and playing harmonica in the Blues Brothers with Dan Aykroyd and with his own band, The Sacred Hearts. Together they have produced four albums and performed all over the world. Jim is thrilled to be getting back to his improv roots with this incredibly talented and hilarious group of actors.
