Saturday 13th September


Jim Smallman has been resolving his own personal issues through the
medium of comedy since 2005, bringing his own brand of oddball
observations and paranoid illness to stages all over the UK.
After stumbling into a comedy workshop in a vain bid to conquer
his nerves he somehow found himself onstage several times a week
with a microphone in his hand and people listening to his general
weirdness. Often, they laughed.

In demand both for his stand-up and increasingly for his compere work,
Jim's act touches on his odd life, his obsession for knowledge and his
downright childish silliness. A regular compere throughout the UK,
since 2006 he has been resident compere at the Giggling Badger clubs
in the East Midlands. Performing as an MC has opened up his act to new
realms of messing around and making audiences act out
his every whim as his enthusiasm takes centre stage.

Jim was a finalist in the Laughing Horse new act competition in 2006 and
again a finalist in the Equity Comedian of the Year competition in 2007.
He has received critical acclaim around the UK for his comedy and is
becoming increasingly in demand on the circuit. This helps his self
esteem somewhat, but possibly doesn't help his bizarre outlook on life.

Thus far the high point of Jim's career has been performing in front of
2,000 people at Leicester's De Montfort Hall for the 2007 Leicester
Comedy Festival Preview Show alongside Jason Byrne, Rhod Gilbert and
Russell Howard.
