Actor Jim Tavare Competes to be Last Comic StandingHP Cast
Actor Jim Tavare, who portrayed Tom the innkeeper of The Leaky Cauldron pub in the “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” film, has been expanding his talents in competing on the NBC reality show, “Last Comic Standing,” on which he is now among the 12 finalists. The object of the show is to find the funniest comics from around the world and compete in Las Vegas, Nevada for the ultimate prize of being the last comic standing after the viewing audience votes. This is not the first time Mr. Tavare has participated in a humorous endeavor, for readers will remember Mr. Tavare was kind enough to join TLC in our 2004 April Fools’ joke where he took control of this Cauldron for a day of fun and foolishness. Clips and previews featuring Mr. Tavare from the show are available via NBC.com, as are full episodes. A slight caution for parents, some material from the show may be unsuitable for younger viewers. Congratulations to Jim!
