Everyone's heard of Jimeon, the
Irish fella who's managed to worm his way into the hearts and minds of people
all over Australia when it comes to comedy. Well this is a DVD of him
performing live back in Ireland at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin.
The thing that I like about Jimeoin is that
he mixes his delivery perfectly with a combination of physical comedy thrown
in for good measure. When he tells a joke, it's as thought he's recounting it
for just you alone with a cheeky look on his impish face.
The tales told on "All Over The Shop" will
have you in stitches in some places and for the rest of the time, a grin will
most definitely be on your face. In fact the only thing that threw me was the
title of the DVD. When did he start calling himself The Jimeoin? Possibly that
stems from the cover shot which seems to show facets of the one man and
combined they are "The". Who cares really, his jokes are funny!
The disc offers nothing in the way of extras
other than a small biography that isn't going to change the way you look at
the DVD format. It's recorded in Dolby Digital 2.0 and only a couple of
cameras used in the performance. If that upsets purists though, get over it!
This is a great comedy DVD by one of Ireland's funniest exports and it is the
humour that makes the title purchase worthy not the way it was filmed.
The thing I liked about this feature was that
I watched it a number of times and was still laughing at the jokes, which is
testament to the delivery and is why I recommend this DVD.
