Reviews:

Jimmy’s storytelling is funny, candid, confident and involving” -  Time Out

"He is a blindingly good comic... one of the most accomplished hours of comedy you will find here this month. Or, to be honest, anywhere, any time. He is white, male, posh and straight, and so ticks no boxes any more, but he bravely overcomes all that to be very, very funny."  - The Scotsman
