When it comes to comedy, Jim TavarA(c) knows that the Atlantic Ocean is not the only thing that separates the U.S. and Britain.
TavarA(c), born in Essex, England, has been a resident of both countries since he finished fourth on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" in 2008. He moved to Los Angeles at the recommendation of NBC executives.
"It's a great, creative place," said TavarA(c), in a phone interview from his L.A. home in advance of next weekend's shows in Ogden. "You think it would be bad, Hollywood. But it's quite down to earth. It's all these people who have come from all around the country and all over the world, and getting together with their ideas."
