A Stalwart of Australian comedy and all round likeable rogue, comedian Jimeoin in his new stand up show Ramble On! happily imparts his clever and quirky observations on everyday suburban life in his trademark devil-may-care style.

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 2005-8, 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, theatres, swimming pools, cattle ranches and anywhere that looked a bit 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.

His 2006 and 2008 seasons at the Edinburgh Fringe smashed 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 him 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.

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

During 2012 Jimeoin has spent a lot of time in the UK performing on some of the most prestigious shows in the UK including ‘Live at the Apollo’, ‘Royal Variety Performance’,  Channel 4’s ‘Comedy Gala 2012’, ‘Best of Edinburgh Comedy Festival’, ‘Jason Manford’s Comedy Rocks’, ‘’Best of Just For Laughs’ and ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’

In 2013 Jimeoin started off the year by a hugely successful tour of the South and North CoaST of NSW. Followed by seasons at the Adelaide, Melbourne and NZ Comedy Festivals. 2013 also included a 27 show run in the Newcastle and Sydney Clubs. He performed at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and then embarked on a successful UK tour.

In 2014 Jimeoin hosted the World Cup Soccer Show (The Full Brazilian) on SBS.

In 2015 he toured all the major capitals of Australia as well as Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a tour of the UK.

2016 he appeared on Brexit at Tiffany’s Foxtel RX at Edinburgh Fringe, The Melbourne Comedy Festival OXFAM Gala and John Lloyds Museum of Curiosity.

2018 he appeared in the movie ‘That’s not my Dog’.

2019 Jimeoin performed in every state in Australia as well as Edinburgh and the UK.
