Jimeoin – Acclaimed for his brilliantly funny wit, his charming observations on the absurdities of everyday life and his exceptional rapport with Australian audiences – they just love this hilarious Irishman.
Jimeoin’s regular appearances at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and his widely successful Australian tours, attract sell-out advance bookings.
Internationally, Jimeoin has toured his compelling humour from New Zealand to Europe and the U.K., the Middle East, the Far East and Canada’s Montreal Festival. He’s a regular at the Edinburgh Festival where, in 1994, he was awarded the highly acclaimed “Critics Award”.
A familiar face on Australian television, Jimeoin has appeared on the top variety and comedy Television programs.

Jimeoin has also made guest appearances on top-rating overseas television programs including The Des O’Connor Show (UK) and USA’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien (a viewing audience of over 13 million).
His one-hour “tea towel” tour of Ireland documentary was a quirky, self-styled travel special, inspired by constant touring and a love of his native land.
