Audience gets chance to ask questions

Jimmy Cricket enjoyed an “interesting and thoughtful” Q&A with some of his fans when he appeared in Ormskirk.

The famous entertainer was at the town’s Civic Hall earlier this month for one of his ‘Audience with’ shows, an evening of stand-up comedy.

These events have an interesting twist in that they feature a segment where members of the audience can ask Jimmy a question.

Ormskirk’s show was hosted by Jimmy’s good friend, comedian Tony Vino, who presided over the questions from the audience.

Jimmy said he was “thrilled to receive quite a number of interesting and thoughtful questions”.

He added: “I would like to thank Matt Orr from the nearby Engine Rooms [a community-based venue offering a huge range of activities and entertainment], who helped on the technical side and to comedian Adam Rush for helping to arrange a date for the show in the first place.”

Jimmy Cricket decided to drop in on the good folk of Ormskirk ahead of his appearance at the town’s Civic Hall next month.

The visit followed the famous Northern Irish entertainer’s successful walkabout in Stockport Town Centre.

This time around he was ably joined  by comedian Adam Ruston who is promoting Jimmy’s visit, along with Thea – Ormskirk Civic Hall manager – and Lauren, the bar manager at the venue.

During Jimmy’s whistle-stop tour of downtown Ormskirk, he popped into the Lime Tyger bar and Disraelis 1 pub, and did a meet-and-greet around the main pedestrian area.

He said: “I’m looking forward to the first of March when I will bring my ‘Audience with Jimmy Cricket’ show to the town with supporting host, the comedian Tony Vino.”
