Hun­dreds of res­i­dents across the shire of Ash­bur­ton were treated to a night of laughs by co­me­dian Jimeoin ear­lier this month.

Jimeoin per­formed his stand-up show in Pan­na­won­ica, Onslow, Parabur­doo and Tom Price from May 11-14.

Babysit­ters were in high de­mand across the four towns as adults en­joyed Jimeoin’s wit and ob­ser­va­tional sense of hu­mour.

Sup­port­ing him was Perth co­me­dian Janelle Koenig, who showed off her im­pres­sive im­pro­vi­sa­tion skills and in­ter­acted with the crowd.

Shire of Ash­bur­ton pres­i­dent Kerry White said the shows were a boost for com­mu­nity spirit and so­cial en­gage­ment.

“Hav­ing Jimeoin per­form and in­ter­act with our res­i­dents made for a great night out,” she said.

“With tremen­dous sup­port from our part­ners, the Shire is proud to have hosted such a highly ac­claimed and en­ter­tain­ing show across all four towns.”

The shows were pre­sented by the Shire in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Rio Tinto and Chevron’s Wheat­stone Project. Rio Tinto gen­eral man­ager Parabur­doo op­er­a­tions Gabe Iwanow said the Jimeoin tour was an ex­cit­ing event for the com­mu­nity.

“We are proud to work with the Shire of Ash­bur­ton through our Com­mu­nity In­fra­struc­ture and Ser­vices Part­ner­ship to sup­port the de­liv­ery of events like this that brings ev­ery­one to­gether for a night of laugh­ter and fun,” she said.

“It’s a great way to foster a sense of place for lo­cals and build com­mu­nity vi­brancy.”

Chevron com­mu­nity en­gage­ment su­per­vi­sor Erin Glancy said it was fan­tas­tic to see high-pro­file acts like Jimeoin make their way to Onslow.
