Fiffen and Faffen: Listen now to the first two podcasts!
The second podcast based on Jimmy Cricket’s variety comedy double act called Fiffen and Faffen is now available.
It is about two men who gave up the world of showbusiness because of all the changes in the work place and in their lives.
They hope to rekindle their dream of going back on stage, to do what they know and love best of all, entertaining people.
The first podcast, published in April, was The Comeback Kids.
And the second is called Don’t let the lockdown get you down!
In the latest podcast, the guys find themselves in lockdown and facing Covid restrictions like everybody else.
We find out in this episode how they make the best of their situation.
No more Fiffing and Faffing was staged for the first time in September 2018 at the Blackburn Empire Theatre.
Jimmy’s first play got a great reception from the audience on its debut.
It also toured northern England in 2019 and early 2020.
Appearing with funnyman Jimmy is Jonathan Young from The Bachelors, and actor Colin Meredith.
Colin has had several notable appearances in ITV’s Coronation Street over the years.
In the play, Joe Fiffen and Jerry Faffen are performing on their last night in showbusiness in an end of-of-pier show.
Set in the dressing room, (where they settle old scores) and on stage, it is a mixture of drama and variety!
