‘So looking forward to welcoming Jimmy and Milton!’
There is less than a week to go to the live show starring comedians Jimmy Cricket and Milton Jones.
Jimmy and good friend Milton are appearing at the Princess Alexandra Auditorium in Yarm, Stockton-on-Tees.
The show takes place on Friday (10 February).
Ripping Yarms Comedy Club is staging the event.
The theatre’s website says: “Ripping Yarms Comedy Club is back with a bang in 2023!
“Join us for a stellar line-up of comedy greats!
“Nina Gilligan is your host for the evening.
“She’ll be joined by podcast sensation Jamie Hutchinson, the utter legend of UK comedy that is Jimmy Cricket and our fantastic headline act is none other than Milton Jones.
“Grab your tickets now to avoid missing out for what is sure to be a fantastic night of comedy.”
A social post for the venue said: “We are so looking forward to welcoming Jimmy Cricket and Milton Jones to Yarm for Ripping Yarms Comedy Club!”
Jimmy commented on social media: “Looking forward to working alongside the great comic and friend @themiltonjones on Friday 10th Feb.
“So why not come and join in on the fun!”
Milton, well-known for his Hawaiian shirts, was a regular panellist on TV’s Mock of the Week.
He has also had various shows on BBC Radio 4 and won the Perrier comedy award for best newcomer in 1996.
His style of humour is based on one-liners involving puns delivered in a deadpan and slightly neurotic style.
He and Jimmy first became friends after performing on the same bill at the Edinburgh Festival in the late 1990s.
The pair have stayed in touch ever since.
