Staying in the game is the formula for success for comedian Jimmy Dunn. After all, the New Hampshire Seacoast isn’t a hotbed of comedy clubs (though his new Comedy Oasis on Hanover Street might change that). But, just like his beloved Boston Red Sox, if you stick with it long enough, you come out on top. Dunn is riding high on his appearances on ESPN Fan Attic, Comedy Central, Jimmy Kimmel Live and appearances on the Red Sox pre-game show during the team’s historic 2004 season. The Hampton resident is now going into a new medium with his book “Funnyball: Observations from a Summer at the Ballpark.” His friend and cohort from NESN, Tom Caron, suggests that between the Sox winning the World Series and Dunn writing a book, the Apocalypse must be nigh. If it is, Dunn will find something funny to say about it.
