Jimmy McGhie



Jimmy performs stand up all over the world at festivals, theatres and comedy clubs and has appeared on numerous television and radio programmes; including the BBC’s Two Pints and Coming of Age ,  ITV ‘s Loose Women, Channel 4’s  Deal or No Deal, Comedy Central, ABC Australia, THREE New Zealand and Absolute Radio.

His career was kick started in 2005 when, after reaching the finals of the prestigious BBC New Talent competition, he performed in the Amused Moose Hot Starlets Showcase at the Edinburgh Festival to packed audiences. So began his full time working career as a stand-up comedian, and he hasn't looked back. He  has since performed 10 solo shows at festivals around the world including Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Sydney Comedy Festival, Perth Comedy Festival and New Zealand International Comedy festival.

He is highly sought after corporate awards presenter having hosted over 100 corporate events for companies such as Coco-Cola, Google, YouTube, Shell, Nestle, McDonalds, DAF, ProSound, Insider, Deutshe Bank, JP Morgan, HSBC and many more. He regularly provides the studio warm up for BBC1’s Graham Norton Show, ITV’s Loose Women and Ch4’s Deal or No Deal.


Jimmy was great, he’s so easy to work with and was hilarious on stage. It was a tough crowd at some points (very tech heavy audience) but he sailed through the awards and made fun out of it. Would be keen to work with him again in the future!
