Jimmy Walker to perform during Winterfest


Fans may have just one response to hearing who’s coming to Crosslake Winterfest: “Dy-no-mite!”

Yes, Jimmy J.J. Walker will perform Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 at Pine Peaks Events Center amidst this year’s Winterfest celebration.

Perhaps best known for his role in “Good Times,” Walker was a stand-up comedian before landing the spot on the show. Walker was working for a radio station before joining The Last Poets as an opening act, one of his first stand-up acts.
