Royalty Theatre, Sun 12 Mar.
As you would expect Jimeoin has not lost his charismatic and cheeky charm, and we are immediately drawn in as he casually chats about life experiences we all identify with. With a bottle of Cooper’s in hand he confides in us, and we are soon laughing with him about the ravages of ageing.
Jimeoin will have you in stitches from the start with his measured confidence, (not too much, not too little), and making sure he carefully paces himself so the show is not ‘too funny too early’! So do we want no-nonsense humour about time, space, war and religion? No, not really… how about cats and dogs, smells and sounds, his wife’s facial expressions, and laughing at our voice ‘gear changes’? Yes!
Jimeoin is definitely as funny as ever! With a witty Irish sense of humour, he uses his boyish good looks and comical expressions to full extent; clearly amuses himself while amusing us, laughing at his own jokes and giving them a tick when we like them too. It’s an ever-moving laughing feast, with some great ‘almost’ love songs thrown in. Funny right to the end, this man certainly delivers a lot of laughs and a load of Renonsense.
Karen Bailey and Terry Izatt
