Jimmy Cricket paid a visit to the Suffolk coast for a show on Saturday February 18.

The well-known Irish comic appeared in front of a large audience at The Seagull Community Interest Theatre in Lowestoft.

Jimmy is pictured above with friends of the theatre.

Since 18 February, Jimmy’s family have been contacted by Tina and Peter Goodall who were at the show.

They said: “What a brilliant night it was, my husband and I laughed all evening. We will definitely be watching out for the show to be in the area again in the future. We travel around a lot in our motorhome so it doesn’t have to be near Norwich, our home city.

“We were lucky enough to be able to speak to Jimmy in the interval and I was amazed and lost for words when at the end of the evening as we were leaving he remembered our names.

“It would have been understandable that he perhaps remembered mine as I was squeaking having lost my voice over three weeks previously but he remembered my husband’s too and for that we will never forget what a lovely man he is.

“He asked me to let him know when my voice is back but sadly that’s not yet. I lost it once before and it was like this for a year and two weeks. Hope he’s not holding his breath haha.

“We love the dvd and I’ve asked my son to buy the letters from me mammy for me for mothers day.

“Anyway, please thank him from Peter and myself for being a true entertainer. It was so refreshing to not hear swearing which spoils the comedy for us.”

  1. We were there and saw Jimmy live for the first time, absolutely brilliant. What a lovely lovely man, he had time to talk to everyone and having spoke to us in the interval we were amazed that he remembered and said goodnight to us both by name at the end of the show. What a star. We will definitely be going to more of his shows. The Seagull is a lovely little theatre, we felt like we were part of the show. Thank you to Jimmy and his lovely wife for a very pleasant evening.
