AN IRISH lad with a funny streak will put you to the floor in fits of laughter at Port Macquarie Panthers tonight.
Jimeoin is returning to the Hastings, as part of his hilarious new tour WHAT?!
A prolific writer with an exceptional audience rapport, he is known and loved for his brilliantly funny wit and charming observations on the absurdities of everyday life.
Jimeoin regularly appears at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and has toured successfully across the country.
Internationally, Jimeoin has toured to great acclaim from New York to New Zealand, Aspen to Amsterdam, the Middle East to the Far East.
He has also performed around Europe and the UK and is a regular invitee to the mecca of comedy, Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival.
In 2005-8, he toured throughout the vast outback regions of Australia as well as playing the major cities and festivals across the land.
This was filmed for a TV series on BBC Ireland called Jimeoin Down Under.
A familiar face on Australian television, Jimeoin has appeared on all the nation’s top variety and comedy programs including Good Morning Australia, Rove (live), The Panel, Thank God You’re Here, Full Frontal, Bligh, The Midday Show and Tonight Live.
The three series of his own hit show ‘Jimeoin’ (Seven Network) consistently won the ratings when they were transmitted in 1994-1995.
In 1999, Jimeoin wrote and starred in his debut feature film, The Craic. Its opening weekend made it the second highest grossing box office movie in Australian-produced film history and it went on to have hugely successful video releases throughout western speaking countries.
In his native Ireland, it was second only to The Matrix.
The Extra was shot by the comedian in 2004, which he again wrote and starred in. Released in spring 2005, it was a romantic comedy about an average guy who aspires to be a movie star and is willing to give anything a go to get there.
A special audience test screening at the Edinburgh Festival was very well received, the film was presented at Cannes and went on to be a popular screening in Australia.
A keen fisherman and golfer, his constant touring enables Jimeoin to check out and experience new outdoor adventures.
Never a man to sit still in his career for long, he is forever doing gigs, trying new things and, basically, just having a laugh.
