Dy-no-mite Fridays

For a catch phrase to make it past the 15-minute mark, it has to be succinct and easy to remember and have the right person deliver it. That’s why even though it’s been more than 30 years since the final Good Times episode, Jimmie Walker is still known for those three syllables his character J.J. Evans made famous: dy-no-mite! Nowadays, Walker’s still a busy man, touring the country some 40 weeks a year on the standup circuit and shootin’ the breeze on late-night television. If you’re part of Generation Z and have no idea who he is, do yourself a favor and watch Good Times on TV Land. You can do that on an iPhone, right? Jimmie Walker performs at 9:30 p.m. every Friday in November at Seminole Casino of Hollywood (4150 N. State Road 7, Hollywood). He is also emceeing the casino’s Dynomite Dollars Game Show on Thursdays and Fridays. Admission is free. Call 954-961-3220, or visit seminolehollywoodcasino.com.
Fridays, 9:30 p.m. Starts: Nov. 12. Continues through Nov. 26, 2010
