Jimmy Carr: Terribly Funny – NZ Tour – 26 January 2023

Contentious comedian Jimmy Carr is returning to New Zealand with brand new material for 2023 with his Terribly Funny tour.

The British comedian is known for his humour that verges on the side of awkward and inappropriate. 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 2,500 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. The Terribly Funny tour kicked off in May 2019 and will visit every corner of the UK and Ireland before heading off to Australia and New Zealand.
