A minute with Jimeoin


Irish/Australian funny man Jimeoin will be presenting his hilarious show of world-class stand-up at Just The Tonic in Nottingham tomorrow night, Tuesday 22 May. Internationally hailed as one of live comedy’s masters Jimeoin is touring his new show, Lovely, across the UK in 2012.

No gimmicks, purely and simply just great craic.

He has previously featured on the biggest TV shows in UK, Europe and Australia including ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’, ‘The Royal Variety Performance’, ‘Live at the Apollo’ as well as ‘The Very Best of the Edinburgh Comedy Festival’, ‘The Best of Just for Laughs’ and ‘Conan O’Brien’.


We caught up with Jim ahead of his arrival in Nottingham.

Experience Notts: Have you ever been to Nottingham? If so, what do you remember about the city?

Jimeoin: Allot of hills. A canal. Men in tights

Experience Notts: What can audiences expect on Tuesday?

Jimeoin: A laugh. You will be none the wiser at the end of the show. Daft stuff. Funny though

Experience Notts: What’s the best heckle you’ve ever had?

Jimeoin: Do your lobster routine. I don’t have one but I really had to think. They got me. Fair and square.
