Jimmy Baron takes the stage at Cobb Energy Centre

Jimmy Baron's thrilling washboard solo was a highlight of "Oklahoma" Thursday night

Jimmy Baron's thrilling washboard solo was a highlight of "Oklahoma" Thursday night

Dave FM’s Jimmy Baron packed the house of the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre for a thrilling washboard concert last night.

OK, that’s sort of what happened.

The co-host of Dave FM’s “Jimmy and Yvonne” morning show joined the cast of “Oklahoma” last night as a walk-on.

He has video of his electrifying performance posted online.

It doesn’t look like Baron had a speaking role, but he did lend his voice to the chorus. He appeared in the “Farmer and the Cowman” scene at the top of the second act as an interested bystander. We guess his part could be considered Guy With Washboard.

“Oklahoma” continues its run through Sunday at the Cobb Centre. Click here for details or ticket information.

Jimmy Baron has an EGO the size of Oklahoma.

First, peering through the window asking Tom Cruise to get his cousin laid in Risky Business, now this. Quite an acting career…

Where’s the freakin’ cowboy hat, Jimmy? He totally screwed up the “Farmer and the Cowman” scene and ultimately, the entire production. I’d fire him immediately and as an audience member, I would ask for a refund. He doesn’t even belong in a TV car commercial let alone a fine production like “Oklahoma!”

I like him so much more without Barnes and that witchy-looking lady.

He needs toucher back desparately. He is not a good solo act int he morning. He needs someone to interact with. Plus, stop with the carpet washing adds.

It’s cool that he’s got Crash, but yes, Toucher was a great addition.

I’ve always had a sort of crush on Jimmy. Kinda weird, because he’s really not my type. We do work in the same office complex ever since he went on board at Dave FM. HHMMMMM. JK Jimmy. I won’t stalk you in the atrium. :)

Shouldn’t he be raising his child rather than following NeNe Leakes and playing a washboard?

Washboard solo? What a douche bag…….

What next? I bet he is going to start wearing graphic tees and custom shirts with funny variations of his name, like JIMclass, or JIMpounded.

Yvonne Monet is the BEST DJ in Atlanta.
I remember her from her old ALBUM 88 Days doing the 12″ show.
She knows her sh_T!
I think she used to spin at Velvet when Atlanta had a cool club hopping scene.

You people who make snide comments are just idiots. Why not focus on your cubical job and think about what you’re going to have at lunch when you and your dimwitted co-workers go to Applebee’s.

Did Jimmy and the ex-wife finalize their divorce? Is she still writing a tell-all book?

I don’t really get the hatred for Jimmy — yes, he’s boring and he makes me change the station when I have to hear him, but he really isn’t that bad.

Barnes on the other hand, is waaay too self-important. Toucher & Rich would make a great addition to Jimmy & Yvonne…..I would almost have Yvonne do “Dave After Tomorrow” or an alternative/indie rock show where they play The Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, Daft Punk, etc. Yvonne I like and is fun to listen to in the morning.

Of course, Jimmy just had to ask about Yvonne’s sexual orientation on the air when their program was starting, which is not appropriate.

No thanks

Met Jimmy once after a Thrashers game. Kind of a jerk. Wasn’t at the performance, so that I won’t judge :)

I can’t believe that midget (Jimmy) is back on the air in Atlanta again. I didn’t care for the morning X way back in 90’s. Most people listen to the radio for music not bad humor & opinion.

Oh my god… I’ve loved the shoveling here. Jimmy IS a douche. Toucher would still eat him for breakfast so, I don’t see that EVER happening (going forward) – even though I’d totally listen if he did come on board! DaveFM has completely turned me off in the AM because of Jimmy. So boring and way sick of his advertisements. I thought this Cobb Energy Performance was a joke – until I read the article. Lol… funny. Funny SAD, not Funny Ha Ha. Any SINGLE, funny hot guy wanna hit Applebee’s with me next week? ha ha…
