Jimeoin 's Biography

Jimeoin is acclaimed as one of the hottest stand-up comics of this generation - a true comedy master. 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 every-day life.


Jimeoin’s regular appearances at the Melbourne International comedy Festival and his widely successful Australian tours attract sell-out advance bookings, often with extra shows added due to demand.

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 1999, Jimeoin wrote and starred in his debut feature film ‘The Craic’ (Village Roadshow). It’s 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.

2004 saw Jimeoin shooting his much-anticipated second comedy movie ‘The Extra’, which he again wrote and starred in. 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.

In 2005 - 2008, Jimeoin was touring throughout the vast outback regions of Australia as well as playing the major cities and festivals across the land – he became the first comedian to go and tour totally “over the top” of the country, playing a mix of hotels, Theatre speakerss, swimming pools, cattle ranches and anywhere that looked interesting. This was filmed for a TV series on BBC N.Ireland called “Jimeoin Down Under”. He performed additional sell-out tours in Ireland, shows in Paris and several massive seasons at the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as four seasons in London’s West End.

Jimoin’s 2006 and 2008 seasons at the Edinburgh Fringe smashed the box-office records before those festivals even opened and were a huge hit with the public and critics alike.

In 2009 he toured South Africa and performed at the London, Kilkenny and Montreal Comedy Festivals as well as touring regional Australia including WA and QLD.

2010 saw Jimeoin return to the Adelaide and Melbourne comedy Festivals. He also appeared at the Auckland Comedy Festival and toured the entire North and South Island later that year. It was during this year, Jimeoin also starred on all the biggest UK BBC’s ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’, ‘Comedy Rocks’, ‘The Very Best of the Edinburgh Comedy Festival’ as well as ‘The Best of Just for Laughs’. And in Australia his ‘Over the Top’ TV series aired on Foxtel.

In 2011, Jimeoin was very busy touring Country NSW, Canberra, Regional South Australia, Sydney Clubs Tour, UK, Edinburgh and finished off doing a season a the Brisbane Powerhouse.

During 2012 Jimeoin has spent a lot of time in the UK but he did manage to find time to perform at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and do a WA tour.

Jimeoin has also produced three top-selling CD’s: ‘Goin Off’, ‘The Craic’ and ‘Forklift Truck’. His DVD’s ‘All Over The Shop’ and ‘Third Drawer Down’ have been best sellers in Australia.

A keen fisherman and golfer, Jimeoin’s constant touring enables him 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.
