Comedy double act as you’ve never seen them before

Posted onPosted on 21st Jan

There’s more to ‘mammy’s favourite Irish comedian’, Jimmy Cricket, than his R & L Wellies.

After 50-plus years in the spotlight, the comedian has drawn on his experience to pen a new stage comedy.

Appearing at the Mansfield Palace Theatre on Thursday 20th, February, Jimmy also stars in the new show, No More Fiffing and Faffing, which is a mixture of drama and variety.

You’ve heard of the great double acts in history, Morecambe and Wise, Cannon and Ball, Holland and Barrett. Now Meet Fiffin and Faffen!

The show is also written by and co-stars Jonathan Young and Colin Meredith.

Comedy double act Joe Fiffen and Jerry Faffen are on their last night of the summer season at an end of pier show in Clusters-on-Sea. Things haven’t gone well so they decide to jack it all in and make it their last night in showbusiness after 36 years. They perform their favourite sketches to their loyal fans and strut their stuff on stage.

We then follow them to the dressing room, where they settle old scores. The boys are offered a reality TV show if they change their minds about retiring, which Jerry wants to do, but Joe has his heart set on a new career as an entertainments manager in a seaside holiday hotel.

Luckily stage manager Archie Gibbons is on hand to sort things out, enabling the boys to perform all their best routines for their loyal fans at their Swan Song Show!
