Biography

Jimmy Barrett is a shock-comic. He was hired by Sterling Cooper to do TV spots for Utz Potato Chips.[1] Later, he gets a deal for a television show, "Grin and Bear It".

Jimmy insults one of the owners of Utz Potato Chips, Edith Schilling, but later apologizes for his behavior, attributing it to his on-screen persona and that he can't help but crack jokes when he comes across the opportune time.

While this is happening, his wife Bobbie becomes more involved with Don and eventually begins an affair with him. Unbeknownst to Jimmy, she at one point leaves with Don for the beach, but they get into a car accident en route. Don ends their affair after he learns she's been gossiping about him, and Jimmy becomes aware of the situation.

Jimmy opens up to Betty Draper at a party, and says he accepts what his wife does behind his back, but shatters Betty's world with this revelation.[2]

Later, at a going away party for Freddy Rumsen at an underground night club, Jimmy greets Don as if nothing has happened, after which Don punches him and knocks him to the ground.[3]
