After a very successful NZ Comedy Festival Jimeoin is back and there’s a hilarious aroma in the air. Join him as he effortlessly makes you breathe in his witty brand of charming humour... You will leave with the unforgettable stench of happiness.
"A Comic Masterpiece" -Daily Mail UK.
For a good, clean laugh, you can’t go past Jimeoin. Born in Belfast, he arrived in Australia at the age of 22 where he found work as a gardener, whiling away hours communing with nature, he had plenty of time to think & clearly he’s done OK for himself since then.
He is one of the very few artists to have his own show, which aired on the Seven Network in the mid-'90s for 3 seasons. He’s appeared on every TV show you can think of (Thank God You’re Here, Good News Week, Hey Hey it’s Saturday, Full Frontal + in the USA on ‘Late Night’s with Conan O’Brien’ to an estimated audience of over 13 million), written & starred in hit movies (The Craic & The Extra), has a DVD with regular collaborator Bob Franklin, “Jimeoin & Bob’s Cooking Show”, and continues to tour the world to sell-out houses.
"As sharp as they come... Stand up is rarely so appealing" -London Evening Standard.
In 2009, his travels have continued unabated with performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Montreal “Just For Laughs” comedy festival as well as tours to New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, Ireland & the Far East. He also did a run around the outer suburbs of Sydney & got in a spot of fishing in Darwin.
“Has his victims doubled up in agonising laughter” -The Herald, E2009 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
