St Patrick’s Day, also known as the Feast of St Patrick, is a religious and cultural celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of St Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
Famous funnyman Jimmy Cricket is performing again at the Lancashire theatre where he recorded his DVD.
Jimmy Cricket Live – Pull Your Seats Forward was created by the popular comedian’s family company, Wellie Boot Productions, in 2010 at the Royal Court Theatrein Bacup, Lancashire, near Jimmy’s adopted home of Rochdale in Greater Manchester.
And the Northern Irish entertainer returns to the venue on Sunday – St Patrick’s Day – for one of his Great Value for a Tenner comedy shows.
Belfast-born Jimmy produced the DVD in response to the overwhelming public clamour that suggested there was a real demand for a recording of his stand-up entertainment.
The DVD is an hour and 10 minutes long and includes Jimmy’s favourite routines, a phone call and letter from his mammy, his famous Leaving Home poem, his sentimental ballad called I’m Dreaming of a Far off Land and 20 minutes of extras.
Around 8,000 copies of the DVD have been sold, which is particularly impressive as it is not available in retail outlets; it can only be bought via the Go Shopping page on this website or at one of his live shows.
Jimmy posted on social media this week: “Looking forward to my return to the Theatre were I recorded my DVD nine years ago @BRCTheatreGroup for the St Patrick’s Day celebrations this coming Sunday with Dansworks Dance Academy and a few Irish songs from Mrs C. ”
