Jimmy’s play, No more Fiffing and Faffing, had its debut last September at the Blackburn Empire Theatre and he will be back at the Chorley Little Theatre on 19 May to perform it there as part of a North of England tour.
All-round entertainer Jimmy, who wrote the play, also appears in it, along with Jonathan Young from The Bachelors, and actor Colin Meredith, who has made several appearances in ITV’s Coronation Streetover the years.
Looking ahead to Saturday’s event, he posted on social media: “Hi everyone excited to be part of “What’s Your story Chorley” festival at 11am on Sat 30th March @ChorleyTheatre when I will talk about the books and Comedy Play I’ve written followed by my pal @Philwalkercomic who has a great children’s book out at the moment currently on sale.”
Jimmy Cricket expressed his thanks to all after thoroughly enjoying his Christmas show at the Square Chapel Arts Centre in Halifax, West Yorkshire.
Friday’s event also featured pianist Roger Stevenson, songwriters Cath Binns and Angus MacGregor, festive songs from the Halifax-based Sing for Fun ladies group and Christmas cheer from the local talented performers of the Stage Door Studio Theatre Workshop.
Afterwards, Jimmy posted a message on social media channel Twitter saying it had been a “wonderful evening”.

Jimmy Cricket met up with an old friend while appearing in his summer show on the south coast.
The famous comedian is currently starring in Sentimental Journey, the family extravaganza running at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre in Eastbourne, East Sussex, every Tuesday and Wednesday evening until 26 September.
And it was there he caught up with Jacqui Ridler (formerly Jacqui Munroe) whom Jimmy has known since the 1970s.
They first met when Jimmy worked the holiday park circuit in Torbay where Jacqui was a Bluecoat.
Jacqui herself is from Torquay and her mum ran a hotel in the resort for a long time. In fact, Jimmy stayed at the hotel in 1994 when he was appearing at the Festival Theatre in Paignton.
She now lives in Eastbourne with her husband and thought she should pop along and catch up with Jimmy.
