Our Jimmy returns 2021 James Young William Caulfield Comedy
Thu 23 Sep

Comedy Arts FestivalOur Jimmy - Past and Present

Back by popular demand! David Hull Promotions presents Comedian William Caulfield's return to the stage with the latest of his ‘OUR JIMMY’ shows featuring the beloved Ulster characters first created by the late James Young.

Past AND present!

Far from being outdated, William has cleverly transported these fabulous characters bang up to date and we meet them in newly written sketches and songs in the present day. 
All the usual characters are there, Derek, Lily O’Condriac, Emily Beattie, Willie Simpson, Billy Hulk, the wee Schoolboy, the shipyard worker and Orange Lil. But what they are up to in the present day? Come and find out!
As well as new sketches, you'll recognise some old favourites too, so it really delivers what it says it will: Our Jimmy - Past and Present!

William is joined by two talented actors from Northern Ireland, Orla Mullan and Keith Lynch.

Part of our Comedy Arts Festival

Our Comedy Arts Festival, supported by Ards and North Down Borough Council, runs from 17-25 September.

We've got delightful operetta in the shape of The Pirates Of Penzance from Opera Anywhere, stand up comedy from Neil Delamere and Paddy Raff, sketches from William Caulfield as Our Jimmy and a fantastic Motown tribute show from The Iconettes.
