You know those VCRs where you scan a bar code to record the program? Well I got one and I thought I'd fool it. I scanned the bar code on a packet of laxatives... and it recorded Baywatch.

The thing that made this show funny was Jimeoin's down to earth comedic skills. Glen Robbins and Bob Franklin were great sidekicks and were vital to the shows integrity. Jimeoin's talent lies in observational humour, pointing out and creating random absurdities. The show featured a selection of pre-recorded skits and humorous theatrical performances in front of a studio audience. A regular segment of the show was Jimeoin's Cooking Show which contained no cooking whatsoever however potatoes would be dressed up to impersonate well known figures and the occasional descent down invisible escalators would occur. Regular characters on the show include Mr Trampoline, Leaf insect man, Detachable Toe & Super Wheelbarrow. One of the funniest moments from the show was when Jimeoin went to a stenciled bike symbol on a bike lane and claimed that it was where a bicycle had died. The show also featured musical guests in which the genre was mainly folk oriented.
