“Jimeon recalls the familiar at a fantastically silly level, boiling his audience down to a tear-filled, gibbering mess” Scotland on Sunday
‘’Inspire…Comedy so deceptively bright it almost blinds you…not so much stand-up comedian, more stand-up David Attenborough…this is comedy of the highest order’’-London Evening Standard
‘’It gets no better than this…brilliant…consummate comic. He’s not trying to preach to you, he won’t change your life but he will make you laugh a lot….Hilarious’’ Time Out
‘’A wicked self-deprecatory tone for an hour that has his victims doubled up in agonising laughter…exemplary stand-up comedy’’ Herald
Jimeoin is loved by audiences throughout the world for his brilliant wit and his razor-sharp take on the absurdities of everyday life, and has even beaten the world’s scientists to the finish line by introducing the concept of the Speed of Cheese – the more useful and alternative measurement to the Speed of Light – into modern day vocabulary.
Having left his native Northern Irish town of Portstewart and settling in Australia over a decade ago, Jimeoin’s disarmingly relaxed, cheeky and sometimes surreal sense of humour has led to him performing sell-out tours to record-breaking audiences across the length and breadth of his adopted homeland. He has released several top-selling CD’S and DVD’s and has also built up a strong international following.
This is a show that is purely and simply about having a good time and a good old-fashioned laugh.
