Jimmy Cricket & co a hit at golf club

Jimmy Cricket will return to a golf club in north Manchester later this year following a recent successful charity show there.

The fundraising event, A Night with the Stars, took place at Blackley golf club and was in aid of the Red Cross and the Ebola crises appeal.

Jimmy graced the club alongside Buzz Hawkins from the Bradshaws, the impressionist Johnny More (all three are pictured above) and a host of other performers.

Tony Horsfield and Eric Devereux, both very good friends of Jimmy, were the organisers of the event.

It must have been a good night, as Jimmy has already been asked to return to the same venue for his own comedy evening that is being organised by the club captain and his entertainment team.

Jimmy Cricket in Bridlington

Jimmy Cricket did an unscheduled performance on the promenade in Bridlington this summer.

Over the August Bank Holiday weekend, the famous entertainer brought his stand-up comedy show to the Spa Bridlington theatre at the East Yorkshire resort.

As Jimmy was about to release his new comedy, I was bit by Luis Suarez, he decided to do some promotion of the song during the afternoon before his show began later that day.

So the Spa management arranged for him to have a pitch on the promenade outside their complex where Jimmy could belt out his new novelty song for those in the vicinity.

Many passers-by were intrigued by what was going on. John – pictured above with Jimmy – was one of those people and his friend, Richard, posted the photo above on Twitter, saying John could not stop mentioning it at work the next day!

The outdoor performance went well for Jimmy and later that day he also had a good crowd turning up to see his comedy show at the theatre – some who maybe came after their Sunday afternoon peaceful stroll along Bridlington Prom had been interrupted by a well-known Northern Irishman!

I was bit by Luis Suarez is based on the Uruguay and former Liverpool striker who was banned for four months for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup in Brazil this summer.

Comics join forces for family show 150 150 mhamer

Comics join forces for family show

The South Shields Gazette article on the Jimmy and Alfie Show Jimmy Cricket is teaming  up with fellow comedian Alfie Joey for a performance in South Shields this spring.

Northern Irish entertainment legend Jimmy and BBC Radio Newcastle breakfast presenter Alfie pair will feature in the aptly named ‘Jimmy and Alfie’ show at the Customs House Theatre on Saturday 10 May.

The South Shields Gazette recently published a newspaper article (right) about the gig, entitled “And there’s more for the whole family”.

Jimmy said: “A big thanks to senior reporter Vicki Newman for this great write-up.”

The newspaper’s website also has a story about the show in which Alfie  – who can also seen in BBC Two sitcom, Hebburn – says: “Jimmy and myself became pals in quite an unusual way.

“I had trained to become a priest and left to become a comedian, and his son, the comedian Frankie Doodle, was a comedian and gave it up to become a priest. He’s Fr Frank Mulgrew now.

“People said we’d been through the same thing, just in the opposite direction, and we got talking, and I realised who his dad was.

“I ended up being invited to Jimmy’s 60th birthday party and became a family friend, and we’ve done a few gigs before, but this will be the first one that’s just me and him.”
