Edinburgh Fringe: JIMEOIN – SOMETHING SMELLS FUNNY

Comedy
Venue: E4 Udderbelly
Stunning show of world class stand-up from one of live comedy’s masters. No gimmicks, purely and simply about having a laugh.

Jimeoin, based in Australia, has performed at the Fringe festival for going on 17 years now.  You can really get a feel for his experience in his craft, as his timing is dead on. He minces few words but in an almost lackadaisical way he goes right for your funny bone as he unsuspectingly cajoles the audience into giggling fits. He can carry on a complete conversation with his eyebrows alone.  My favorite bits of the show were his interpretations of reading in bed, and having to make the bed up late at night, as well as his many varied facial expressions.

He also engages in banter, back and forth, with his signer, who translates the show for those with hearing difficulties.

Brought up in Ireland, Jimeoin McKeown moved to Australia 23 years ago and it is there that he found his greatest success.  He has co-written and starred in two feature films and has his own comedy television programme.
