Jim Smallman

This East Midlands comic has made a name for himself with his rise to reliable compere status and it's hard to see that he will go much more beyond that level on the evidence of this poor Fringe debut. He tells us that he's had quite an eventful life and there's no reason to doubt that, but in the telling of his various tales, there's barely a punchline that registers.

Jim Smallman - The Boy Next Door Gone Wrong

  • 2 stars

Best debut show nominee - Leicester Comedy Festival Awards 2009. Jim is an amusingly-tattooed, depressive, former child prodigy. He used to be nice... what on earth happened? 'An instinctive storyteller' (Chortle.co.uk).
