Here’s a guy that you are going to love from the moment you set your eyes on him. This English-born Irish-Australian stand-up comedian is as original as they come. He just takes over the stage with his deep, captivating voice, Irish brogue and amazing facial expressions. Jimeoin tops it up with  some  really  energetic  body  language  which  hits  the  mark.  He  takes  mundane  aspects  of human  nature  and  brings  out  the  funny  side  of  them  in  such  a  way,  that  the  laughs  keep  on coming. Jimeoin is also modest enough to evoke a laugh at his own expense. All in all, this guy is a born entertainer, and the wit seems to take its own natural course.

Born in 1966 as James Eoin Stephen Paul McKeown at Warwickshire, England, Jimeoin grew up in Londonderry, Ireland. After passing out from the Dominican College, Portstewart, he worked on construction sites in London for 4 years. Jimeoin moved to Australia at the age of 22, where he worked as a gardener.

“Jimeoin’s ever-evolving live show: a fluid mixture of his signature observations, with hawk eye dissection of more of the absurdities of life and how we live it.” – Belfast Waterfront “Comedy of the highest order… Inspired!” – Independent
