'Educational, entertaining, intimate and expertly marshalled by Olver, this is highly recommended for comedy fans and essential viewing for aspiring comics' (The Skinny).
'This was one of the most entertaining hours I've had at the Fringe. The guests on this occasion weren't under pressure to perform, but responded to Olver's pertinent and flowing questions with a surprising honesty. Fascinating for aspiring comics and enthusiastic fans alike' (Three Weeks).

Jimmy McGhie is a highly regarded young stand-up and comic performer, appearing on the UK and international comedy circuit to great acclaim. A finalist in
the BBC New Talent competition, Jimmy is one of Britain's hottest comedy talents.
Having already built up a solid fan base, his 2009 and 2010 Edinburgh solo shows were complete sell-outs. Having appeared on Russell Howard's Good News, Jimmy's comedy stock is set to go into the stratosphere.
'A performance that demonstrates he meets all the requirements needed to
become a TV star' (British Comedy Guide)
'There are few comics I can think of who have the sheer star quality of Jimmy McGhie. He is the perfect little comedy package' (The Scotsman)
'Hilarious and lovable... A fantastic storyteller' (Three Weeks).

This smart-suited Geordie is full of surprises and manic energy. His self-depreciating manner belies a razor sharp talent and with witty observations he tackles a plethora of life's situations in his hilarious songs. Possibly Newcastle's finest export since the famous brown ale. Richard has supported Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Jo Brand, Lily Savage and Phill Jupitus on tour as well as having many TV credits to his name.
Winner of Time Out Comedian Of The Year.
'Comic genius' (The Daily Express)
