Jim had a four DVD deal with Paramount DVDs UK before gaining his international stardom. After doing one DVD with them, he had an opportunity to do an HBO special. They denied his request to complete his contract after doing his project with HBO, so Jim claims to have told them "I'm doing the HBO special, sue me." And they did. Despite being sued over it, that HBO special launched Jim into international comedy stardom.

Was a trained opera singer and was employed two times to work in the Opera Australia.

Decided to become a stand up comedian during a two month recovery period for surgery on his vocal chords.
