Jimmy Cricket returned to the stage for the first time in 2022 with shows at two excellent venues.
The popular Northern Irish comic performed at Lytham Hall in Lancashire on Friday 28 January (see photo above).
Jimmy posted on social media about his visit to Lytham Hall: “Hi folks, back on the road in 2022, and what a wonderful venue.
“My thanks to Peter Anthony and Paul @LythamHall.
“My thanks also go to @Philwalkercomic and compère who did a great job holding the show together for the evening!”
Sean Lester commented: “We loved it Jimmy, you’ve not changed a bit over all the years!
“Thanks for a lot of laughs!”
The Lytham Hall official website says it is “the finest Georgian house in Lancashire”.
It adds: “It was once the ancestral home of the colourful Clifton Family, spanning over four centuries.
“It is a Grade I listed building, so is therefore of significant local and national interest.
“The site and its 80 acres of parkland are of great archaeological interest dating back to the 12th century when it was home to a priory of Benedictine monks.
“Sir Cuthbert Clifton built a Jacobean Manor House on this site in 1606.
“Much of the Jacobean building still exists.
‘Topped off my birthday weekend perfectly!’
“In 1752 Thomas Clifton commissioned John Carr of York to build the fine palladian house which we see today.”
Jimmy was in action again at Lake View in Cumbria the following night (see pictures below).
He said afterwards: “Hi folks what another stunning venue tonight, The Lake View, Glebe Road, Bowness-on-Windermere.
“I’m pictured here with the owner Tom Nash who hosts comedy nights and also with his banner which features my fellow entertainers shows!”
Jayne Boothman was among those who saw Jimmy’s show in Cumbria.
She said: “This was a brilliant night of comedy & music!
“Topped off my birthday weekend perfectly!
“Thanks @jimmy__cricket!! we will be back to see you in March!”
