Irish comedian Jimmy Cricket is celebrating another milestone with sales of his first live DVD.
More than 3,000 copies of “Jimmy Cricket Live – Pull Your Seats Forward” have now been sold.
The DVD was created by Jimmy’s small company, Wellie Boot Productions, a couple of years ago.
Belfast-born Jimmy produced the DVD in response to the overwhelming public clamour that suggested there was a real demand for a recording of his stand-up entertainment.
It was filmed at the Royal Court Theatre in Bacup, Lancashire, near Jimmy’s adopted home of Rochdale in Greater Manchester.
The DVD is an hour and 10 minutes long and includes Jimmy’s favourite routines, a phone call and letter from his mammy, his famous “Leaving Home” poem, his sentimental ballad called “I’m Dreaming of a Far off Land” and 20 minutes of extras.
Jimmy said he was especially pleased about reaching 3,000 based on the fact that the DVD is not available in retail outlets: it can only be bought via the Go Shopping page on this website (where you can purchase all Jimmy’s merchandise) or at one of his live performances.
“I am thrilled I have reached this milestone after such a short selling period,” said Jimmy. “It proves I am filling a gap in the market.
“To reach 3,000 sales is truly a significant achievement to celebrate. This DVD is something I am very proud of.
“I have also had good feedback from those who have purchased it. This always pleases me, as I set out with an aim to create a high-quality comedy product which was suitable for all the family.
“If you have not got your copy, you still have every chance to as I have now just placed an order for another 1,000 copies to replenish my stocks!”
