John Eads aka Jim Shorts


Known for his vocal power and dynamic presence, Jim Shorts is a well-oiled, deliciously seasoned hunk of talent. His abilities as a singer, emcee, comedian, cosplayer and burlesque performer continue to evolve into some kind of next-level, sci-fi Pokémon. For years, he has worked his magic as an award-winning cosplayer, host, and emcee for Oklahoma’s premier locally-operated Soonercon! With T&A in his DNA, he is also a proud member of Terre Rouge Burlesque and on a mission to unbuckle the bible belt and show the world just how shiny Oklahoma’s undies are. If that weren’t enough, he has served the community as a volunteer member of both Jedi OKC and the 501st Legion, providing smiles, joy, and helping raise thousands of much-needed dollars for those in need. The tools in his box are impressive, and he’s ready to give you the best Ooos, Ahhs & Hahas in the galaxy!
