Jimmy’s Cricket Team

Jimmy's Cricket Team scriptListen once more to Jimmy’s much acclaimed Comedy Radio series called ‘Jimmy’s Cricket Team’ which was first broadcast on BBC Radio 2 during the mid 1990’s.

The show starred Jimmy alongside a tremendous array of acting talent including: Bill Pertwee (Dad’s Army), Noreen Kershaw (Heartbeat and Act of Grace), and fellow Comedian Peter Goodwright.

Behind the scenes ‘Jimmy’s Cricket Team’ had a formidable creative team with Mike Craig as the show’s Producer and the legendary Eddie Braben  (from the Morecambe & Wise show) as the writing force behind it.

Listen to all the recordings in the, ” three page drop down” available here! In his own words, Jimmy says the following:-

“Well Folks,welcome to one of the happiest periods in my showbiz career!

When the Comedy writing Legend, “Eddie Braben”, said he was going to write a, “Comedy  Radio Show”, for me I felt like all my Christmas’s had come all at once! He said we will surround you with three brilliant actors:- Bill Pertwee, Noreen Kershaw, Peter Goodwright, and bring in one of the best Radio Comedy Producers around Mike Craig!

“Jimmy’s Cricket Team”, came out in the early nineties and went on to notch up four series. The first series was recorded at, “The City Varieties Theatre”, in Leeds, and the rest at, “The Club Theatre”, in Altrincham!

I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoyed performing in them!
