Jim Campbell returns to the Fringe for the first time since 2014 with a new show about love, a nervous breakdown and how hard it is to sell an engagement ring. It might sound a bit depressing but it's actually packed with gags, with Chortle saying; "Punchlines are laugh-out-loud thanks to the clarity and originality of of his thinking." The ring is still for sale so if you're planning a memorable proposal he's happy to facilitate this.
Jim is also a co-presenter on the hugely popular podcast The Football Ramble and is co-author of the critically acclaimed book of the same name, though steers well clear of that particular F word in this show.
