He is an actor/writer/producer, who began his career on the stage in England.. He made his theatrical debut in the U.S. in "The Boy's Own Story". He gained the attention of the New York theatre scene. In 1982 was cast in Noel Coward's "Present Laughter" by George C. Scott, which also featured Nathan Lane, Christine Lahti, Dana Ivey, and Kate Burton. He soon was seen on Off-Broadway shows, including the original US production of "Noises Off", "The Knack" at the Roundabout Theatre, and "Make and Break" with Peter Falk at the Kennedy Center.

Tonight on Art Salon Live, Host Pia Louise invites, Actor, Screenwriter and Producer, Jim Piddock to share about the HBO Comedy Series, "Family Tree." Created and written by Christopher Guest and Jim Piddock. Produced by Lucky Giant and HBO in association with NBC Universal and the BBC. "Family Tree" is a comedy about a young British man, Tom Chadwick (played by Chris O'Dowd) unemployed with time on his hands. After receiving a mysterious box of 'curios' from a distant great aunt he goes in search of his geneology. Or perhaps Tom is just "Everyman" in search of himself. Its a storyline with characters and truths to which we can all relate. "Family Tree" is not so much a comedic story, but an up close examination of our own quirks and the human condition. We are introduced to a collection of odd characters that make up Tom's family. One of whom is his sister, Bea (played by ventriloquist, NIna Conti) who carries around a puppet monkey named, Monk (Nina Conti's real stage prop) who speaks and makes observations that Bea herself cannot. Tonight I get to speak to Jim Piddock who plays, Mr. Pfister, Owner of the shop, "Mr. Pfister's Bits and Bobs". Being a hypochondriac he spends a good amount of time on the website, istifatal.com. As a caring companion he is like family to Tom who lives above the shop..I have to find out why Mr. Pfister smells everything. http://www.hbo.com/family-tree#/family-tree/cast-and-crew/index.html Jim Piddock http://jimpiddock.com/

He appeared in his first movie in the top-grossing film of 1989, "Lethal Weapon 2", in which one of his lines, "But...you're black" in answer to Danny Glover's request to emigrate to South Africa, became a catchphrase for the film.
As a voice actor, he is most notable for providing the voice of Major Zero in the English version of the video game Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Bolero the Bull in the movie "Garfield 2", and the fictional artistic director of Forever Young Films, Kenneth Loring, doing the hilarious commentary in the directors' cut of the Coen Brothers' "Blood Simple"

2015 - The Year of Experiencing Yourself Differently
As we broadcast our very last show on this network, we leave you with a glimpse of what potentially lies ahead for you and for humanity in 2015.
Professional astrologer, Alison Chester-Lambert will be giving us an astrological overview of the year to come, and then international speaker, teacher and author, Jim Self will present his final full length solstice edition of Keeping Pace with the Shift.
For the past four years Jim Self has been pointing to the changes that are happening, what they mean, how they will be affecting us, and what we need to do to move through this transition. Now as we move beyond the “2012 effect” into a new era, there are new templates of being and experiencing ourselves in a new consciousness that are available to us. The problem is most of us just don’t know how to grab hold of this. In order to perceive ourselves differently, we have to experience ourselves differently. In this final episode, Jim and Sandie will discuss:
*Endings and beginnings: now that the old phase is completed, what choices await us in the new?
*How to dismantle the old templates that have been keeping you stuck
*Getting out of reactionary, moving into mastery
*Why you can’t express yourself as that 3rd dimensional personality in a 5th dimensional body
*How to use your chakras in ways you’ve never been told
*Why some people are already experiencing their light body and how you can too
Jim will also lead a 10-minute meditation that will allow you to experience yourself differently, and provide you with a new tool—the triads.

Jim Basnight is a journalist that publishes a Husky hoops subscriber only blog at www.huskydigest.com. With a decidedly NW focus, Jim covers everything from the newest potential star on the play grounds and gyms in this rainy region to the greats of yester year. This week Jim welcomes Ed Isaacson of NBA Draft Blog, to discuss NW NBA players and prospects.
A case we are following very closely is that of Barrett Brown. He has been jailed for over two years, having been raided and arrested while on TinyChat. His charges are basically bs. the hyperbolic YouTube rant that led to his arrest, was that of an angry citizen, at his wits end, lashing out at his oppressor, and has unfortunately been taken way too seriously. after accepting a plea deal earlier this year, with a maximum of 8 1/2 years, he was due to be sentenced this week. This was much less than the over 100 years prosecutors were pushing for.
Also on with us Chris and Matt who have started the Table Turners Radio podcast.
