Series 7 - 7. Jason Manford, Tom Stade and Jimeoin

Jimeoin (pronounced Jim-own) is an Irish-Australian comedian bigger Down Under than he is here. From the minute host Jason Manford hands over to him, he has the audience in the palm of his hand with splendid physical comedy involving impersonations of how different birds land. You think his impression of the way a swan flashes its wings about is good, but his wide-boy pigeon is even better. Then he tops both showing how chickens “walk like they’re in a minefield.” It’s downhill from there but it’s a cracking start.
