Recovery Comedy is proud to present Jim Trino

Born and raised in Bakersfield, CA. Jim grew up swimming in rivers, hydrosliding in canals, hunting with friends and playing with fireworks. Standard issue guy shit. Jim graduated High School, went on to college and eventually earned a degree in theater arts. His dad still calls that diploma his receipt. During these years a slow progression into the world of alcoholism and drug addiction was coming to fruition. It all started out fun and ended up Jurassic Park.

Jim got clean for the first time in 1989 and started ski racing which brought him all the way to the world cup. He then relapsed and for 8 years, including a 2 year prison term where Jim learned all about tweaking and recycling. Jim got clean in 1999 and has been in the program ever since.

Comedy came with sharing and healing came with laughter. Jim has been through a divorce and the death of friends and family and hasn’t found a reason to use. Currently he is married to a wonderful woman (who is typing this shit against her will at 10pm). THE END...... Can I have a job? Please?

"Without a doubt the funniest comedian I have ever seen at a NA convention. He was 100mph the whole performance- everyone in attendance was elated with the comedy show. Jim’s ability to connect with the audience was top notch. There was a buzz around the convention center the next day- everyone was talking about how good Jim was- We will definitely bring Jim back and continue to use Recovery Comedy"
