Special show remembers Liverpool comic Mickey
Jimmy Cricket has taken part in a fundraiser for a well-respected Liverpool comedian who died recently at the age of 69.
Mickey Finn was a regular joke-teller on the North West club scene for many decades and also had a reputation for helping local charities.
He passed away a couple of months ago after a short battle with a terminal illness.
After Mickey’s funeral, a Liverpool-based entertainment agent called Les Bather decided to organise a benefit night for his family.
It was held at the Victoria Memorial Hall Club in Garston, Liverpool on 24 May and Jimmy headlined the show, alongside the cream of local Liverpool-based talent.
Jimmy said: “The night was a big success with a great turnout of entertainers, proving Mickey was a popular figure. The event raised a magnificent £2,000 for his widow and family.”
