The venue was poor. Jimeoin deserves more. We were three-quarters back in the middle. The seats were not raked. And they were lined up one after the other rather than adjacent rows being staggered. And the sound system was too quiet and quite possibly not working properly, because Jimeoin’s voice seemed to be coming from one loudspeaker on the left. Consequently, we could hardly see Jimeoin, could hear maybe 3 words out of 5, all in a cramped room. The two women either side of me couldn’t see Jimeoin at all, and could hear very little. Very poor experience, and a complete waste of time and money.

Always wanted to see this guy in person as my wife was fed up with me laughing at watching him on YouTube. Better on stage as he really lets his stories ( and his very expressive face ) flow. He nails the absurdities of life beautifully indeed. Great to have a really good laugh after two years of lockdown.

We always see him when he's at the festival. Nothing to say other than he's truly one of the funniest and most likeable comedians there is. Went to Spiegeltastic "The Best Mixed-Bill Show at the Fringe" two nights later and he was headlining. He nailed it again and if I see him a 3rd time I'd be happy!

Really enjoyed Jimeoin's show tonight, lots of new material, he really did not disappoint! It's great to see him back on stage doing what he does best... with his eyebrows up.

The definition of "Craic" is "enjoyable social activity; a good time" but this show is so much more than that. Jimeoin's observational humour and facial expressions had me doubled over laughing and I suspect may have me giggling as I get dressed tomorrow morning or maybe the next time I go shopping for bread, but you'll need to see the show to know why!
