Meet Debargo Sanyal who plays a character named Jimmy Boner in Talking Band's BURNISHED BY GRIEF: A ROMANTIC COMEDY written and composed by Ellen Maddow.Jimmy is an awkward young man who is fresh out of law school, and works with the non-profit Legal Aid Society. He is still (literally) trying to find his voice of inner-self-confidence as an attorney in NYC.
He still lives with roommates because he cannot afford not to. His best friend is the cat that he rescued, whose name is The Bronx...and his roommates hate his cat.
"Jimmy is gawky and lonely, while also quite kind and very well-meaning. He is the sort of fellow who is always doing the best that he can despite being somewhat down-on-his-luck and when he is called upon to become involved in a legal housing dispute between daffy tenant Suniye Finger and her beleaguered landlord Tony Hudson, things start to change for Jimmy in unexpected ways..." says Debargo.
