Jimmie Walker's Quotes

  • I'm no actor. I'm a comic who lucked into a good thing.
  • I think the black actor has a tough time being funny from the standpoint of everything being looked upon as 'coonish'.
  • Believe me when I tell you I am lucky to be able to get a laugh here and there in America, And that's a constant fight. Showbiz, I will tell you, is like climbing a greasy pole. Sometimes you get to the top and slide right back down again.
  • [on Esther Rolle and John Amos who played his parents on Good Times (1974)] "I've been speaking to you for two or three minutes. That's longer than I ever talked to them. I wasn't angry at them. We just didn't talk."
