Jimmy Carr Terribly Funny
"A comedy hero for our times – GUARDIAN"
Published: 21 June 2022

One of the best loved comedians in the world, Jimmy Carr is returning to New Zealand for a national tour in January 2023.  Tickets go on sale Monday 27 June at 9am
Terribly Funny contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things.  Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love.  But they’re just jokes - they are not the terrible things.  Jokes are little lies.  Nothing more than wonderful, funny, joyful tricks, constructed from language.  
"Jimmy Carr slays... – ROLLING STONE"
Jimmy will be telling jokes to an adult paying audience who’ve got a good idea what’s in store.  And there’s no point to the show, save for to make the audience laugh. Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo.  Now you’ve been warned, enjoy the laughs. 
Jimmy Carr has been a comedian for over a decade and a half.  He’s performed 10 sell-out tours, playing over 2500 shows to more than 2.5 million people. He’s won the British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-Up Tour and been nominated for the Perrier Award.  His most recent stand-up comedy special was the most streamed on Netflix in the UK in 2021.
