Brian Conley among special guests in 1980s TV show
Jimmy Cricket has been enjoying editing one of his old TV series, which featured well-known entertainer Brian Conley.
Central Television hosted the series, And There’s More, in the mid-1980s.
Northern Irish comedian Jimmy recalled: “Having fun today editing the second series, which was filmed at Central Television Studios alongside so many of my fellow performers, and technicians and writers and camera crew.
“Back when there was stand-up and sketches in the same show! #SaveTheArts.”
Jimmy will be putting up some clips from the TV series on the homepage of this website, so look out for those, folks!
