Jimeoin lands BBC series

Australian tour televised

Comic Jimeoin has landed his own series on BBC Northern Ireland.

Jimeoin Down Under follows the stand-up on tour in remote parts of Australia, his adoptive home.

A BBC spokesman said: ‘Over the course of six weeks, viewers will enjoy this very funny warts-and-all series, part travelogue, part fishing trip and part stand-up show, which sees Jimeoin travel from Broome via Darwin to Byron Bay, finishing up in Sydney.’

The series, which starts this autumn, is the first in a new 10pm Friday night strand designed to attract younger viewers to BBC Northern Ireland.
