Baby sitting, Jive Aces & meeting ‘Big Bird’ at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
Jimmy Cricket recently returned from a trip to this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The famous entertainer, 70, was there primarily to support his daughter, comedienne Katie Mulgrew.
Katie had her own show at this year’s fringe festival called Saboteur (see poster below right).
Jimmy not only popped along to see the show, but was present in Edinburgh to help look after his grandson, Jim, who is Katie’s nearly one-year-old baby (bottom picture).
Clearly performing a stand-up comedy show at the fringe festival, as well as all the other promotional activities needed to build interest in a show, means the support for Katie was very welcome.
Jimmy even did a spot of promoting to help attract an audience for Katie’s show!
Edinburgh is naturally a fun place to be around during August with the festival in full blast.
While in Edinburgh, Jimmy went to see his friends, the swing band called the Jive Aces, who were at the festival as well.
He also appeared on the daily Fast Fringe show and capped off his visit by bumping into Big Bird, based on the character from the children’s television show Sesame Street (top right)!
