Jimmy Cricket’s autobiography can now be read using an electronic device as well as being available in paperback.

The Jimmy Cricket Story is the famous comedian's official autobiography

Memoirs Of An Irish Comedian officially went on sale in April.

Initially, it could only be bought as a paperback book (£11.99).

However, it is now also available as an ebook priced £9.99 (unless you have subscribed to Kindle Unlimited, in which case it is free).

Amazon Kindle allows users to read ebooks purchased on Amazon.

Jimmy laughed: “So you can help save the planet and have a giggle at the same time!”

The book is already highly rated on Amazon.

One reviewer, who gave it five stars out of five, said: “Greatly enjoyed Jimmy’s life story and long, tough route into show business.

“Some very amusing incidents, some sad ones too.

“This is not a short book but it kept my attention throughout.

“100% recommendation.”

Clean comedy

Jimmy has said he is happy to sign copies of the book (though sadly not the e-version!) at his live shows.

The autobiography tells the heart-warming story of 50 golden years in showbusiness – told in his own words.

Jimmy said he hoped it would “bring back warm memories for older readers”.

He added: “And [it] gives a taste to younger readers of a form of entertainment that seemed to vanish before our very eyes.”

Recognisable for wearing a funny hat and green wellies marked L and R on the wrong feet, Jimmy has been making people laugh as a professional comedian for half a century.

And he proudly keeps his comedy clean – increasingly rare these days –  making him the perfect family entertainer.

The book is available from online retailer Amazon here.

Mary’s Meals

His best-known catchphrases include ‘And there’s more!’ and ‘Come closer!’

He is also famed for reading out Letters from his Mammy, which have provided the material for two published books.

One pound from the sale of every book goes to Mary’s Meals.

The charity supports feeding projects in some of the world’s poorest communities where hunger and poverty prevent children from gaining an education.
