Jimmy McGhie BA (Hons)

Jimmy McGhie's ninth Edinburgh solo show is a revamp of last year's critically acclaimed Need(y), which was essentially a lot of sprightly whinging and polished existential angst. He only started writing it in June and it got 4 stars in the Scotsman, now it's even better!

What do you do with a second class arts degree? Have a lot of fun, travel the world and end up living in your sister's attic. An analogue man in a digital world, marooned as a bachelor amongst a sea of marriages, mortgages and kids. Jimmy continues to steer clear of anything too serious in life and tries not to step on any millennial language landlines.

"a lot of skill spent making it look casual, if you like a good laugh in a comfy chair, it would be hard to find a better opportunity on the Fringe. " **** The Scotsman
