Jimmy McGhie

Fee Band

Jimmy mixes a sunny disposition with bemusement at much of the modern world, especially technology and the revival of the handle bar moustache. Since warming up for Loose Women, Jimmy’s onscreen TV credits include Russell Howard’s Good News. He also stormed JLA’s Real Variety Show.


Jimmy McGhie is an acclaimed stand-up comedian. A hit at Edinburgh and on the live circuit, he’s been a finalist in a host of new comedy competitions including the BBC New Talent and the Perth Comedy Festival.

Delivered with a down-to-earth, likeable charm and just the right amount of enthusiasm, Jimmy has the knack of making any audience feel like friends. He combines a bright disposition with a disdain for much of the modern world. He considers being a bit (but not really) posh, the myths of moving in with your girlfriend, how technology turns us into particularly needy children, and the horrors of fashionable media types.

Jimmy has performed on Live at the Electric and Russell Howard’s Good News. He’s been the warm-up act for shows from Loose Women to BBC Three’s Two Pints... and has supported Chris Addison and Simon Bird on tour.

Looking Ahead to International Women’s Day

Samira Ahmed, Eniola Aluko, and Alex Mahon

We were joined by four fantastic speakers to look ahead at International Women’s Day. With the theme of this year’s event being #InspireInclusion, we were lucky enough to hear from four women who have each blazed a trail in their respective fields: CEO of Channel 4, Alex Mahon; the former Australian Prime Minister and Chair of Kings’ Global Institute of Women’s Leadership, Julia Gillard; one of the leading voices in football, Eniola Aluko MBE; and broadcaster and journalist, Samira Ahmed.
