The press sometimes say some lovely things about me, here’s a few!

“Beautiful comedy from the stand up who wears his life on his skin” – The Sunday Times

“wonderfully gritty … his struggles with mental illness and alcoholism make for impressive comic pickings” The Guardian

“It’s obvious that Jim Smallman is a natural-born compere. He has such an easy rapport with the audience and tells his tales with a fluidity and energy that keeps everyone attentive. He could talk the hind legs off a donkey, but you suspect the donkey wouldn’t really mind … he’s an instinctive storyteller who draws out the humour in every anecdote. On the comedy spectrum, he falls somewhere between Frank Skinner and Dave Gorman … his silver-tongued banter is likely to charm most audiences” Chortle

“a talented comic” TimeOut

“the second he focuses, he’s unbeatable … there’s an anger and sarcasm worthy of Jack Dee, Jo Brand, maybe even Bill Hicks. And all the time there’s this sense of impotent outrage, of righteous frustration, that’s up there with Basil Fawlty, the Blackadder dynasty, maybe even vintage Alexei Sayle” 4Laughs

“Jim Smallman is not just a comic who tells brilliant jokes, he is a heart-warming storyteller, and his experiences will have you captivated and laughing out loud” – Three Weeks

“Unapologetically, shamelessly life-affirming… a storyteller of warmth and humanity” – Fest Magazine

“Smallman’s a terrific presence, all effervescent charm and bounciness. Even the vague grunts offered by the audience are enough for him to spin into properly funny gags” – The Skinny

“Smallman has the crowd completely hooked… razor sharp jokes and observations come from his wonderful self-deprecating stories” – Hairline

“Smallman, as articulate as he is, is an unpretentious comic who takes real visible joy in provoking a laugh… he is very funny” – No Borders Magazine

“Smallman is an accomplished performer and a joy to spend time with… He deserves to be playing much bigger rooms” – Festival Journal

“A comic who has set a benchmark for this kind of comedy” – New Current
