Comedy classic shows feature four famous funnymen

The comedians - Classic Comedy With Roy Walker, Adrian Walsh, Jimmy Cricket and Gene Fitzpatrick with Clubsound

Two shows featuring four Northern Irish comedy legends take place on the Emerald Isle early in 2024.

Our very own Jimmy Cricket is among the quartet, which also includes Roy Walker who presented popular TV game show Catchphrase for more than a decade.

Gene Fitzpatrick and Adrian Walsh complete the fab four.

Musical accompaniment and laughter comes from comedy showband Clubsound.

The first show is at the Riverside Theatre in Coleraine on Tuesday 23 January (8pm).

Book online here or call the box office on 028 7012 3123.

The Grand Opera House in Belfast – the city of Jimmy’s birthplace – hosts the second performance on Friday 22 March (7.30pm).

You can book here. Alternatively, phone 028 9024 1919.

Autobiography

Don’t forget that Jimmy Cricket’s autobiography is on sale.
Memoirs Of An Irish Comedian is priced at £11.99 as a paperback.

It is also available as an ebook priced £9.99 (unless you have subscribed to Kindle Unlimited, in which case it is free).

Amazon Kindle allows users to read ebooks purchased on Amazon.

Jimmy has said he is happy to sign copies of the book at his live shows, where they are available for a discounted price of £10.

The autobiography tells the heart-warming story of his 50 golden years in showbusiness – told in his own words.

Recognisable for wearing a funny hat and green wellies marked L and R on the wrong feet, Jimmy has been making people laugh as a professional comedian for half a century.

And he proudly keeps his comedy clean – increasingly rare these days –  making him the perfect family entertainer.

The book is available from online retailer Amazon here.

Mary’s Meals

His best-known catchphrases include ‘And there’s more!’ and ‘Come closer!’

He is also famed for reading out Letters from his Mammy, which have provided the material for two published books.

One pound from the sale of every book goes to Mary’s Meals.

The charity supports feeding projects in some of the world’s poorest communities where hunger and poverty prevent children from gaining an education.
