              Jimmy’s show is as follows:

 “Calling all Theatre’s”, consisting of Sketches, Variety and Drama, it tells the story of the double act Joe Fiffen and Jerry Faffen who have been together for 36 years and who now are about to perform for the last time together in an end of Pier Show in Clusters-on-Sea, while settling old scores in the dressing room on the night!


Jimmy Cricket’s first comedy play, which got a great reception from the audience on its debut performance in 2018, is touring northern England in 2019.

No more Fiffing and Faffing was staged for the first time in September last year at the Blackburn Empire Theatre.

Appearing with funnyman Jimmy is Jonathan Young from The Bachelors, and actor Colin Meredith, who has had several notable appearances in ITV’s Coronation Street over the years.

The play was performed at The Met in Bury (23 February), and will be @Chorley Theatre (19 May), the Bridlington Spa (18 July) and the Gladstone Theatre (6th Oct).

No more Fiffing and Faffing was reviewed in the latest edition of the Rochdale-based Style magazine (see image below).

Jimmy tweeted: “My thanks to Ruth and Colin  for the review in the recently released Style Magazine, we will be bringing the Comedy Play to  23rd February,  19th May,  18th July, and at the Gladstone Theatre in the  in 2019!”

The show, co-written by Jimmy, is an hilarious look at the end of an era of British comedy.

It is about comedy double act Joe Fiffen and Jerry Faffen on their last night in showbusiness. As well as looking as some of their classic sketches, they’ll be settling some old scores in the dressing room.
