Good Times, Bad Times, Our Times : A MemoirBook - 2012
Jimmie Walker was born in 1947 in the Bronx. At 22, he began performing as a standup comedian and was eventually discovered by the casting director for "Good Times." Walker was the first successful young black sitcom star, and his catchphrase--"Dyn-o-mite!"--remains an indicator of the era. He continues to tour the country doing stand-up and lives in Las Vegas.
