Sellout for comedy tour’s opening night
The You Must Be Joking tour that reunited Jimmy Cricket with three fellow well-known Northern Ireland comedians had a first-night sellout.
Jimmy headlined the series of comedy shows, which also featured John Linehan (aka May McFettridge), William Caulfield and Gene Fitzpatrick.
It was a recreation of a successful format that was part of the 2013 Cookstown Comedy Festival.
The tour was hosted by four major theatres across Northern Ireland, with the opening night playing to a full house at the Grand Opera House in Belfast.
It then visited Newtonabbey and Derry before ending with a trip to the Market Place Arts Centre in Armagh.
The quartet of entertainers also appeared on the Gerry Kelly radio show at the BBC Radio Ulster studio in Belfast.
The tour was organised by Northern Ireland’s premier promotions company, David Hull Promotions, who are based in Belfast.
