Jimmy Cricket expressed his thanks to staff and friends at the Bridlington Spa theatre after the latest staging of his comedy play.

The East Yorkshire coast venue hosted No more Fiffing and Faffing on Thursday (18 July) as part of a North of England tour.

No more Fiffing and Faffing had its debut in 2018 at the Blackburn Empire Theatre and has also played in Bury and Chorley.

Jimmy wrote No more Fiffing and Faffing and also performs in it.

The other actors are Jonathan Young from The Bachelors and actor Colin Meredith, who has appeared in ITV’s Coronation Street.

Jimmy posted on social media: “My thanks to all the staff at the wonderful #SpaTheatreBridlington for tonight, and to all my friends who helped with loading and putting the set together for the performance! 🎭

The play is about double act Joe Fiffen and Jerry Faffen who are on their last night in showbusiness.

They attempt to settle some old scores in the dressing room.

‘Laugh a minute, very enjoyable and worth the trip from Rochdale’

Our next production of the Comedy will be @bridspam this coming July folks! The latest staging of Jimmy Cricket’s comedy play went down very well – and there are more performances on the way!

No more Fiffing and Faffing had such a highly successful debut last September at the Blackburn Empire Theatre, that it has resulted in a tour around the north of England, including at The Met in Bury earlier this year.

Its latest performance was last Sunday (19 May) at the Chorley Little Theatre in Lancashire.

The play will also be performed at the Bridlington Spa (18 July) – see above right – and the Gladstone Theatre in Port Sunlight on The Wirral (6 October).

Veteran comedian Jimmy wrote the play and also stars in it, along with Jonathan Young from The Bachelors and actor Colin Meredith, who has appeared in ITV’s Coronation Street.

After the Chorley show, Jimmy tweeted: “Our thanks, from myself and Jonathan and @ColinMeredith52 and Clive goes to Ian and Estelle @ChorleyTheatre and Paul who was on sound and lighting, for today’s two performances of Fiffing and Faffing! 🎭

One spectator took to social media to say: “@jimmy__cricket and @ChorleyTheatre That was a great afternoon of entertainment. Laugh a minute, very enjoyable and worth the trip from Rochdale. Great stuff Jimmy & Co. 😁 😁 😁
