From seaside show to Irish festival
Jimmy Cricket recently returned to perform in Eastbourne – where he spent much of the 2012 summer season.
The famous Irish entertainer was back at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre doing his popular stand-up comedy show.
Jimmy (below) and his wife, May, (right) – who performed as the female vocalist May Marion – can both be seen in their dressing rooms getting ready for the show.
May is often Jimmy’s main supporting artist when he is touring the length and breadth of the UK.
Top, Jimmy is pictured with some members of the audience – Ali O’ Grady, and her husband and mother-in-law – in the theatre foyer after the evening’s performance.
All photos are courtesy of Jimmy’s great friend, Gerry Molumby, who had come to see Jimmy at Eastbourne and also arranged for him to appear at this year’s Crawley Irish Festival the following day.
Both Jimmy and Gerry stayed at the Marine Parade Hotel after the show, which is owned by Jimmy’s close friends, Jerome and Carol, and is just around the corner from the theatre.
