Funny, Disjointed, Slow, Entertaining, Intimate setting

See it if you love standup. Uneven material (hilarious/outdated duds). J won me over, esply w songs. J uses his elastic face well. Audience partic meh

Don't see it if you dislike self-conscious chatter (heavy focus on if jokes/show is working). J tells jokes, not stories...there's no theme. Uneven pace.

Also Some of J's jokes are subpar (like: Did I do the Alzheimer's joke?), b... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Clever, Slow, Funny, Uneven

See it if You don't mind sitting through an hour show for a handful of really funny stuff. This is a standup routine that at times is hysterical.

Don't see it if You want to see a funny show. There are only a handful of times that are really funny. So much of it just falls flat.

Raunchy, Slow, Silly, Disappointing, Clever

See it if You enjoy great jokes sprinkled between mediocre/sexist jokes and don't mind a lot of rambling.

Don't see it if you are expecting a polished set versus a very talented comedian testing what works with an American audience.

Clever, Funny, Ambitious, Raunchy, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a good stand up comic. There are some very funny bits, others less funny.

Don't see it if you don't like stand up comedy.

Entertaining, Funny

See it if You like stand up comedy. You want to laugh. You want to have a fun night out.

Don't see it if You don't like stand up comedy with one comedian. You don't want to laugh. You take life too seriously.

Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Edgy, Clever

Don't see it if want to see a family comedy show, well-planned out entertainment

Also I believe the show was billed as 1 hr and 30 min, but lasted exactly o... Read more Read less

Silly, Quirky, Indulgent, Disappointing, Raunchy

See it if You have had a few drinks and/or like old frat boy type humor

Don't see it if Not your idea of humor or you expect shows to be developed and paced. This seemed like a preliminary draft

Clever, Entertaining, Funny

See it if More stand-up than theatre, but at its height, very amusing. Tended to drop off and mellow out a bit in the second half, but a fun show.

Don't see it if You don't like stand-up and are expecting "theater." But you'll be missing some good laughs.

Quirky, Funny, Enjoyable

See it if You enjoy somewhat self-depricating Irish-Australian humor, you can appreciate a comedian trying to connect with a small audience.

Don't see it if You don't like dry, somewhat outdated humor, you are uncomfortable with a bit of awkwardness.

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Great writing

See it if You enjoy delightfully whimsical rambling jokes, with an Irish accent and some pretty fine guitar playing too

Don't see it if You don't like British humour, or are wanting a fast paced show

Uneven, Saw first preview, Was still figuring out his nyc routine, Some laugh-out-loud moments

See it if you laugh easily & don't mind a bit of dirty/sexual humor. His song snippets at the end were some of his best material!

Don't see it if you want a standup routine that's consistently funny throughout, though it may have pulled together more since I saw it/1st preview.

Also Set started strong & I loved his facial expressions, but I felt like J... Read more Read less

Funny, Raunchy, Quirky

See it if you like british standup comedy. A little awkward but he had fun doing something he loves

Don't see it if you dont like a little raunchy and slow moving stand up

Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Delightful, Cheeky

See it if you enjoy standup comedy. He was just as enjoyable riffing off the top of his head as he was delivering prewritten material.

Don't see it if you're in the mood for a play with a story, because this is a solo performance by a comedian, not a story-driven theatrical experience.

Funny, Hilarious, Charming, Delightful

See it if You want to be charmed and serenaded and you like to laugh.

Don't see it if A small older theater with narrow seats isn't your idea of a good time.

Also The show is about an hour long and I enjoyed every minute of it. Part ... Read more Read less

Get happy and get to this zany hoot of razor-sharp stand-up comedy

See it if you want to see a funny and edgy Irish stand-up comedian who winningly engages his audience in an intimate fashion.

Don't see it if stand-up comedy is not your cup of tea.

Also Jimeoin is especially spot-on with his sardonic observations of middle... Read more Read less

Banal, Cliched, Entertaining

Don't see it if You prefer to not hear those awful misogynist jokes about his wife.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Hilarious, Intelligent

See it if You appreciate witty, observational and relatable humor in a fairly intimate space

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Slow, Oldish

See it if There are jokes that will make you laugh every time, and you've heard them, but it's still funny, there will always be laughter after these.

Don't see it if You don't want to see the same old staff on a standup comedy. Just remember you that he still funny.

Also These jokes are universal and he makes many faces that do a plus to th... Read more Read less
