Don't miss: Jimeoin in Dublin and Belfast

Jimeoin is back in Ireland for three gigs over the coming week

JIMEOIN is set to play his only Irish stand-up gigs of 2016 and 2017 over the next week, a three-date run which kicks off at Vicar St in Dublin tonight before the Melbourne-based English-born Irishman from Portstewart heads north of the border for a pair of Belfast performances.

Tomorrow evening's Yeehaa! show at The Waterfront Hall's Cool FM Comedy Club has been sold out for months, but there are still tickets for next Friday's date at the same venue.

From his classic ‘eyebrows' routine to spot-on observations about how birds really know how to ‘make an entrance' and the odd ways we eat ice cream, Jimeoin is renowned for his God-given knack for turning life's littlest moments into hilarious onstage material.

Expect absurd observations, funny stories, actual jokes and the odd musical number from this deceptively low-key comedian, who is currently attempting to reach the finals of Laugh Factory's Funniest Person in the World 2016 competition.

If you think he deserves a shot at the title, then get thee to FB.com/Jimeoin where you will find a link to 'like and share' a video of his classic 'eyebrows' routine in the competition.

With your help, Jim and his famous 'brows could make it all the way to the finals in Helsinki this December.

:: Tickets for Dublin priced €27 via Ticketmaster.ie, Belfast tickets from £20 via Waterfront.co.uk or by calling 028 9033 4455.
