Delusions Of Candour


Delusions of Candour – Edinburgh 2013

Painfully brilliant, pathologically charming and frequently deluded Jimmy McGhie slinks back to Edinburgh after bunking last year. After performing to great acclaim all over the world, from Mumbai to Melbourne, Jimmy returns with more soulful and searingly honest stand-up.



Artificial Intelligence – Edinburgh 2011

“Grown-up, insightful comedy that isn’t dependent on shock value and still had me thinking about issues he’d raised hours after the show. Excellent.”

★★★★  Chortle




All-Powerful Warrior…  – Edinburgh 2010

“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





Northern Meeting – Edinburgh 2009

“Hilarious, self deprecating and lovable… A fantastic storyteller.”

★★★★★ Three Weeks
