Standup Comedian

Awards Host

Last year I said he had "one to watch" stamped on his forehead; well, this year he has "see him now before you have to queue around the O2" stamped on his forehead. There are few comics I can think of who have the sheer star quality of Jimmy McGhie. He is the perfect little comedy package.

The Scotsman

The likeable Londoner has come up with a very strong second solo Fringe show. It's a performance that demonstrates he meets all the requirements needed to become a TV star

British Comedy Guide

A delightful turn of phrase.instantly likeable stand-up." Chortle "Charming, bright-eyed and relaxed, he melds rhythm and timing with a polished and honest delivery. A pleasure to watch.

Fest Magazine

A perfectly constructed hour, which at times feels as if it had all the structure of a symphony. As fringe debuts go, this is very strong indeed
