Jimmy Cricket appeared on a radio show presented by an old showbiz colleague earlier this month.
The Northern Irish entertainer was among the guests on Bernie Clifton’s weekly BBC Radio Sheffield comedy show.
Jimmy was personally asked by Bernie to go over to South Yorkshire to take part in his show, which is called ‘Live-ish’. The name springs from the fact that the programme is recorded on a Friday morning in front of a studio audience, but is not broadcast until 1pm the following day.
Jimmy said: “I have known Bernie for three decades and have always had a fondness for his zany and visual approach to comedy, which is not too far away from my own style.
“I really enjoyed taking part in the show and can see why it is gathering listeners all the time, as it now has become one of the most popular programmes produced by BBC Radio Sheffield.”
