Jim Smallman: My Girls
Award-winning comedian, writer, podcaster and wrestling promoter, Jim Smallman, brings his brilliant 2015 Edinburgh Fringe show, My Girls, to the Backyard Comedy Club for a one night only recording.
This wonderfully funny and heart-warming show is about the two girls in Jim’s odd little life: his precocious, entertaining twelve-year-old daughter with whom he shares ridiculous adventures, and his new wife, the love of his life, who happens to be a retired adult performer. This show is about them.
Best New Show nominee, Leicester Comedy Festival 2015.
‘Beautiful comedy from the stand-up who wears life on his skin’ – Sunday Times
‘Unapologetically, shamelessly life-affirming’ – Fest
