Jimmy Cricket’s autobiography is getting top marks on web-based retail platform Amazon!
Memoirs Of An Irish Comedian officially went on sale earlier this month.
And it already has two five-star global ratings on Amazon.
One reviewer 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.
His autobiography tells the heart-warming story of 50 golden years in showbusiness – told in his own words.
The book can be ordered from online retailer Amazon here.
Northern Irish star comedian Jimmy said he hoped it would “bring back warm memories for older readers”.
He added: “And 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.
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.
The paperback is priced at £11.99.
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.
