About Jim

I'm Jim Smallman. I'm a stand-up comedian. I've won awards for it and everything. I've been performing since 2005 and I've been all over the world swearing at people and being daft for money. You can usually find me performing all over the country (and beyond) pretty much every night of the week. I work for all the major clubs and promoters in the UK. If you do come and see me then you'll recognise me as being the chap with all the tattoos. My preferred description for myself (and if the Sun newspaper ever did some kind of report on me) is “heavily tattooed idiot”. I'm covered in them and yes, that is Ron Burgundy on my right arm. Told you I was an idiot. In 2011 I took my second Edinburgh show up to the fringe and it got lots of lovely attention and great reviews – so much so that I then filmed a version of it for a DVD which I sold nearly 3,000 copies of all by myself, physically and via download. My first hour-long show was “The Boy Next Door Gone Wrong” which won two awards at the 2010 Hollywood Fringe Festival (Best Comedy Performance and Best International Show) and was nominated for Best Début Show at the 2009 Leicester Comedy Festival. In 2012 I was back in Edinburgh again with my third show “Let's Be Friends” and my improvised advice show “Group Therapy”. Once again, they got lots of good press and a plethora of four and five star reviews. Away from comedy I have worked as a radio presenter for BBC Local Radio, appeared as a guest on BBC Radio Five Live's “Fighting Talk”, record a podcast called “Squirrel on a Stick” with fellow comedian Kent Valentine and presented a weekly wrestling TV show for Sports Tonight called The Slam. I'm a voiceover artist too, with my dulcet tones featuring in a fair few adverts and my narration on National Geographic HD series Car SOS. I also make silly videos and write a blog, all of which can be found on this site. How considerate of me. I now write a football blog too called “The Football Neutral” which sees me travelling all over the UK to watch my favourite sport. Oh, and I'm one of the owners of PROGRESS Wrestling in London, which is rather popular. I perform a lot of material concerning my rather strange life. I'm a reformed alcoholic and drug addict and I suffer with bipolar disorder. The latter has led to me being able to help with various mental health charities, and the former has led to me now adopting a straight edge lifestyle – meaning that I do not consume any alcohol, drugs or tobacco – and it's even led to me getting a special straight edge Hello Kitty tattoo, designed by my daughter. Speaking of whom, I'm a father to a nine year old called Amelia. She features in a lot of stories onstage these days, and is even helping me write a children's show for the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014.
