Page 23 JUNE 25, 2004 A man of many faces Jimmy James brings his one-man, several women show to Houston. By JOHNNY HOOKS IMMY JAMES LAUGHED hysterically when asked what his favorite curse word is. "No one's ever asked me that!" James was on the phone in New York, his adopted hometown as he prepared to return to Houston for two weekends at 1415 California. For those not in the know, or too young to have seen him live, a little history is in order. A child of the 1970s, James loved to escape into the world of variety television. Sonny & Cher, Flip Wilson and Carol Burnette were just some of the shows that influenced and inspired him. Even as a toddler he was always singing, dancing and dressing up in his mother's clothes. His remarkable ability for vocal mimicry became apparent at a young age. His first imitation was the distinctive voice of Cher, a longtime idol of his. With dedicated practice on his own, James discovered that he could also accurately imitate the unmistakable voices of Eartha Kitt, BUlie Holiday, Patsy Cline, Bette Davis, Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand and many others. Using his own face as a canvas, he realized that like his voice, his looks could also be transformed. Noticing similarities in his facial structure with that of the late screen legend Marilyn Monroe, he set out to re-create her trademark look and breathy vocal presence. The results of his efforts were spectacular. The "resurrected" Marilyn was an instant hit at the drag-shows and dance clubs where he performed. Through a steady stream of appearances on shows such.as Donahue, Sally. Geraldo, Joan Rivers, Entertainment Tonight, CNN and Showtime, he gained national and international exposure.
