Famous comedian Jimmy Cricket has been promoting the first leg of his touring play at a shopping centre in Greater Manchester.

Jimmy, who wrote the play, was at the Mill Gate Shopping Centre in Bury at the weekend to  let the people of the town know all about the Wellie Boots production.

He later posted the above photos on social media and said: “Out and about today catching the shoppers as they pass by, advertising our brand new Comedy Play soon to be staged at #themet in Bury, my thanks to Marie Gribben, Manager at #MillGateBury, on behalf of myself and #JonathanYoung and #ColinMeredith, the last time I was there it was to turn the Christmas ? lights on, which was back in the nineties! ?”

Jimmy Cricket’s first play, which got a great reception from the audience on its debut performance, is touring northern England in 2019.

No more Fiffing and Faffing was staged for the first time in September this year at the Blackburn Empire Theatre.

Appearing with funnyman Jimmy was Jonathan Young from The Bachelors, and actor Colin Meredith, who has had several notable appearances in ITV’s Coronation Street over the years.

The play will now be performed at The Met in Bury (23 February), Chorley Theatre (19 May), the Bridlington Spa (18 July) and the Gladstone Theatre on The Wirral.

No more Fiffing and Faffing was reviewed in the latest edition of the Rochdale-based Style magazine (see image below).

Jimmy tweeted: “My thanks to Ruth and Colin for the review in the recently released Style Magazine, we will be bringing the Comedy Play to 23rd February, 19th May, 18th July, and at the Gladstone Theatre in the in 2019!”

The show, written by Jimmy, is an hilarious look at the end of an era of British comedy.

It is about comedy double act Joe Fiffen and Jerry Faffen on their last night in showbusiness. As well as looking as some of their classic sketches, they’ll be settling some old scores in the dressing room.
