Jamie Haage has been making audiences laugh for 16 years, but his reputation in this town began many years before hand. It was in 1987 that Jamie Haage was a fiddle player for the Plummer Family. It was during this time that a fill-in comedian was needed for the show. Jamie says that he had never performed comedy on stage at this point, but was always telling jokes to the band. He was asked to try his hand at comedy, and that is when “Jim Dandy” was born. When asked how he came up with the character name, he said that he remembered folks saying, “That was a real Jim Dandy of a car”, and phrases of that sort, allowing Jamie to coin the phrase into his stage name.
The orange outfits came into play while Jamie was performing at Silver Dollar City’s Echo Hollow. Mike Patrick was producing the show, and he and Jamie brainstormed about how this character could fit into the show. It was decided that “Jim Dandy” would be a person who wanted to sing and play in the show. When he wasn’t allowed to do so, “Jim” decided to have a talent content. And by talent contest, he means himself, dressed as different people. It was a creative way to bring laughs to many of the audience members, night after night.
Today, Jamie Haage performs at the Grand Jubilee, the night show at the Grand Country Music Hall. Jim Dandy has never been funnier! His timing is great in each presented comedy set, providing side-splitting laughter to the audience.
During the second half of the show, guests are introduced to the real Jamie. It is during this part of the show that he also displays his multi-instrumental talents.Jamie plays piano, drums, banjo, fiddle and steel guitar, just to name a few. And, he plays them all by ear.
Jamie Haage is more than just his orange clad persona. This guy has a great personality, and is a fine showman. A true professional. But, don’t take my word it. Make plans to come see him live on stage at the Grand Country Music Hall six nights a week. You can find out more from their website by clicking here.
