Jimmy McGhie – Delusions of Candour (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

Making a mockery out of everything middle-class, Jimmy McGhie was nothing short of outstanding. His social commentary, to the audience’s amusement, was delivered with the world-weary bitterness of a man well beyond his years. Yet, where many comedians might roll off onto irrelevant rants, McGhie was cutting and pertinent. Don’t be fooled by the intelligent and interesting observations into thinking it will be purely highbrow, however; if a penis joke presented itself, he couldn’t resist. His show stands out because of the sheer scope and range of his material and this you should discover for yourself. It is so much more than just stand and deliver; McGhie interacted, improvised and ultimately impressed.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug, 8.40pm.
