Comic star Jimeoin returns to South Yorkshire


Irish/Australian comedian, Jimeoin, returns to the Memorial Hall on Sunday 20 May 2012 for a second showing of his current tour, Lovely.

Originally born in Leamington Spa, Jimeoin grew up in Northern Ireland before emigrating to Australia at the age of 22, where he now lives and where he started his comedy career. He first came to public attention between 2005 and 2008 while performing an “over the top” comedy tour of Australia’s outback and major cities, which was filmed for a BBC Northern Ireland documentary Jimeoin Down Under.

He has since become a regular on the International comedy circuit, regularly performing at comedy festivals, such as the Edinburgh Fringe, Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival and more recently the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2012.

Jimeoin’s tour Lovely will once again take him up and down the UK before he settles into a 21 night residency at the Edinburgh Festival in August. His exceptional audience rapport and witty observations on the absurdities of everyday life will not be in short supply.
