Jim Dandy, as he is better known nationwide, was born and raised here in the Ozarks. He’s been performing in Branson for over 30 years working with shows such as; The Collins Family, The Wilkinson Brothers, The Plummer Family, Harold Morrison, Mac Wiseman, Buck Trent, and was a long time entertainer at Silver Dollar City.
Jamie grew up in Kirbyville, Missouri and comes from a very musical family. Carrying on the family tradition, he has been a musician and singer for most of his life. He also owns and operates a local recording studio, Haage Music Productions, where he records for folks from all over the country.
Making people laugh is something he does 24/7. He’s usually entertaining the cast & crew from the time he pulls into the parking lot. The long-time running Carol Burnett Show, with Tim Conway and Harvey Corman, has been a big influence on his comedic abilities.
