JIMMY MCGHIE (UK) – Need(y)

Information

Jimmy’s naturally funny, real life style of storytelling have made him one of the best loved comedians at Festival’s across the globe. And now it’s Sydney’s turn to fall in love, as Jimmy brings his first solo show to the Sydney Comedy Festival.

With seven critically acclaimed Edinburgh solo shows behind him, the poster boy for white male privilege is full of the usual complaints and foolish hopes.

An analogue man in a digital world, marooned as a bachelor amongst a sea of marriages and kids, Jimmy continues to steer clear of anything too serious in life and not step on any millennial language land mines.

Jimmy’s entry into stand up came from being chosen as a finalist for the BBC New Talent Competition in 2005, presenting his first solo show at Edinburgh Festival in 2009.  A staple in the UK on BBC radio including co-presenting the Dave Gorman Radio Show, Jimmy is also a featured favourite in a number of British comedy venues and was nominated for Best International Act at Perth Comedy Festival 2014.

Jimmy with Need(y), is set to charm and disarm Sydney audiences.
