‘It’s official darling… the plumber gag is global!’

Jimmy Cricket's column in the Lancashire Evening PostJimmy Cricket tells readers of his latest newspaper column about a successful two-week stint he had in Missouri, USA, a few years ago.

The famous entertainer says in the Lancashire Evening Post that he had a nervous start in Branson, where his show was being held, but settled in soon after telling a particular joke.

He recalls: “At my first show I did a popular joke from my act that goes ‘I’d now like to sing a sad song, folks. It’s all about a plumber that says goodbye to his girlfriend.

“‘It’s called It’s Over Flow!'”

Jimmy says that he phoned his wife, Mrs Cricket, after that first performance to tell her: “It’s official, darling, the plumber gag is global!”
