From Jim’s site, here’s his biography:
- 0 to 10…. Born a “war baby” in 1941, WIGGINS learned to talk funny and began his career performing a “Singing & Dancing Cowboy Act” on the bar tops in his Chicago neighborhood saloons, thereby earning “beer money” for his Grandpa, who became WIGGINS very first agent in Show Business.
- 11 to 20… Growing into the role of ‘juvenile delinquent’ WIGGINS attended Public, Lutheran, Methodist, Jewish and Catholic Schools, learning just enough larceny to get him sent to the Illinois State Reformatory where WIGGINS practiced defending himself from hecklers,,, Very Big Hecklers.
- 21 to 30… Fully reformed, WIGGINS next became a ‘Hippie Suburbanite’ raising five kids and many plants, plus studying acting at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre, eventually landing a role in the movie, Cooley High, playing a “White Trick.”
- 31 to 40… Following a dream and a court order, WIGGINS moved to Hollywood and became a stand up comic including appearances on the Mike Douglas Show, the Toni Tennile Show, as well as writing comedy material for George Carlin, Chuck Barris and David Letterman. Mitzi and Bud hated WIGGINS.
- 41 to 50… Escaping Hollywood, WIGGINS journeyed, man, country-wide, performing in saloons and comedy clubs, slowly gathering a loyal following for his comedy character, “The Last Hippie in America.”
- 51 to 60… Falling prey to the addictions of “The Road” WIGGINS doesn’t remember the years 1992 thru 2001. WIGGINS believes it was a whole lot of fun, but who knows??? Anybody??? Anybody!!!
- 60 to ??…. Now safely ensconced in his very own “Green Room” this believer in dreams come true, this ol’ Hippie Saloon Comic, hit televisions high mark for a performer,,, The Tonight Show. As to the rest of the story,,, stay tuned!!!
Well folks, the story has ended on June 2, 2015. The last hippy has left us. He will be missed by all who have met him and come to call him a friend.
