Jim Nabors

Gomer Pyle

Actor and singer Jim Nabors got his first big break in entertainment when Andy Griffith caught his nightclub act and decided that the he had what it took to play the role of gas station attendant Gomer Pyle on his upcoming series The Andy Griffith Show. After one year as the inept Gomer, Nabors was offered his own series named after the character. Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. featured simpleton Gomer as a private in the Marines whose naivete' always led him to success at the expense of his frustrated Sergeant. Nabors was also an accomplished singer. He released more than 28 albums, five of which went gold and one platinum. After Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., Jim's acting career took a backseat to his music and his nightclub act. He still managed to appear in the Saturday morning series The Lost Saucer, as well as the feature films The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Stroker Ace and Cannonball Run 2. Nabors currently lives in Hana, Hawaii; he continues to record albums and perform his musical nightclub act.

Character Bio

Gomer Pyle is Mayberry's naive, thickheaded gas station attendant. He gets into countless scrapes with Deputy Barney and can be a bit of an annoyance to the even-tempered Andy.
