Jimmy Cricket teamed up with fellow Northern Ireland comedians (all pictured above with him, from left) Gene Fitzpatrick, John Linehan and William Caulfield.

The four comics featured on the first night of the two-day event, which was named You Must Be Joking and took place at the Burnavon Theatre during the first weekend of August. Comedian Patrick Kielty performed the following night.

This particular line-up certainly created plenty of interest in Northern Ireland as it was the first time all four of these household names had been brought together to grace the same stage.

Jimmy, born in Cookstown and now based in Rochdale, said he was thrilled that the Burnavon Theatre and David Hull Promotions were able to make this special event happen.

He added: “From my perspective, it highlighted the great comedy talent the province has produced over the years.”
