Wonderful, warm audience for Northern Ireland tour opener

I’ll be doing a three-day theatre tour of Northern Ireland with my fellow Irish comedians: Roy Walker, Adrian Walsh, Gene Fitzpatrick and George Jones

Jimmy Cricket and three fellow Irish comedians are currently in the middle of a three-day Northern Ireland tour.

The funny quartet, which also includes Roy Walker, Adrian Walsh and Gene Fitzpatrick, performed at the McNeill Theatre in Larne last night (21 March).

Jimmy said afterwards on social media: “What a wonderful, warm audience for our first night of our tour for @DavidHullPromo at the McNeill Theatre in Larne with funny men, fellow comics, @Gene17Eugene@adrianvwalsh and @RoyWalkerLegend and the great showband ‘Clubsound’ with Geordie Jones.”

Photos and video of the event can be found on Jimmy’s X (formerly Twitter) account.

The next show takes place tonight (Friday 22 March) at the Grand Opera House in Belfast.

And then tomorrow the funny four will perform at the Riverside Theatre in Coleraine.

The David Hull Promotions website says: “Northern Ireland has produced some great comedy acts.

“In an evening of classic comedy we have some of the finest: Roy Walker of Catchphrase fame, Jimmy Cricket ‘Come Here There’s More’, Gene Fitzpatrick ‘the star of the County Down’ and the comedy master that is Adrian Walsh.

“Musical accompaniment and laughter from the comedy showband legends Clubsound.”

 Go here to book tickets for either of the remaining two Northern Ireland shows.

Strictly Come Dancing is the theme of Jimmy Cricket's 2023 Christmas card.

Jimmy’s Christmas card for this year

Hi folks, it’s me, Jimmy, come closer!

As we approach the end of 2023, I’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who came out to see me at one of my live shows this year, and who bought my new autobiography which came out on the first of April.

I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you about some of the exciting things that will be happening in 2024…

There’s nowhere quite like Blackpool and next March I’ll be playing my ninth season at the lovely Lyndene Hotel on the promenade.

The four dates there next year are as follows:

  • Wednesday 6 March
  • Wednesday 5 June
  • Wednesday 4 September
  • Wednesday 4 December.

Also in March I’ll be going back to the Cabaret Lounge in Hull for my fifth appearance for owners Paul and Bev – on Sunday 17 March (St Patrick’s Day of course!).

And to round off a great month, I’ll be doing a three-day theatre tour of Northern Ireland with my fellow Irish comedians Roy Walker, Adrian Walsh and Gene Fitzpatrick.

The dates for that are:

In July I’ll be doing two shows for my favourite television channel – Talking Pictures – at the Savoy Theatre in Monmouth, Wales. For anyone who can’t get to the actual shows, they will be televised.

I’ll keep you in touch with these shows and any others on this website via the Tour Dates section.

In the meantime, my wife May and myself wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
