27: Jim Tavaré – Escaping Death with Prince Charles’ Favourite Comedian
Jim Tavaré is an internationally acclaimed actor and comedian with a highly distinguished career. He played Tom the Innkeeper in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and has the honour of being named as Prince Charles’ favourite comedian. He also holds the distinction of being the only overseas act ever to reach the final of NBC’s ‘Last Comic Standing’ here in America.
Earlier this year – just when Jim’s career was at an all time high – he had a horrific ‘head on’ car crash in Los Angeles. Narrowly escaping death Jim suffered a broken neck, a punctured lung, 15 broken ribs, two broken clavicles, a broken sternum, a fractured wrist, a smashed up femur, fibula and tibia, had a new metal heel, ankle and four blood transfusions. Caroline and Claire catch up with Jim to find out how this formidable Brit in the Wood is doing.
The podcast has only been up for 24 hours so far but we’ve had loads of requests already asking for the YouTube video of when Jim is reunited with his beloved Mr Kippy. So cute!!! Here it is:
