Jimeoin - Film
Its 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.
Released in spring 2005, it was a romantic comedy about an average guy who aspires to be a movie star and is willing to give anything a go to get there. 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.
2005 to 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, 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.
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.
2009 he toured South Africa and performed at theLondon, 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.
The three series of his own hit show Jimeoin (Seven Network) consistently won the ratings when they were transmitted in 1994-1995.
Jimeoin has also made regular guest appearances on top-rating overseas television programs including:
