By Kevin Scott Hall of the Bistro Awards
“His persona is kind of like Mister Rogers with an easy southern drawl…..
his simple, honest delivery brought a lump to the throat….…..Jim Speake’s heart is clearly in the right
place and we came to appreciate the songs in his more understated style. And that is the point of cabaret—bigger isn’t

Three quotes about "Jim Speake
Sings 'Til the Cows Come Home"
If charm counts for a lot, the soft-spoken
Alabama transplant wins extra points for aw-shucks amiable personality and entrenched Southern gentleman manner that bring
a refreshing modesty.
Lester - Cabaret Scenes
Jim Speake invites you to join him for an
hour of true bliss and entertainment... Entertain he does, in spades, in this gem of a show that will play games with your
emotions - comic to serious.
Hamstra - Cabaret Hotline
...dapper and poised... optimistic and smooth...
Jim Speake truly did sing “’til
the cows came home” ...communicating his joy with every number...
