Jim has received an OBE for his services to charity and has three coveted Showbusiness Personality of the Year awards from the Variety Club of Great Britain, The Grand Order of Water Rats and Comic Heritage.
Grand Pier owner Kerry Michael said he was delighted to have secured Jim to do a show at the pier as part of his UK tour.
