Jimmy Carr performing standup - Joburg Events

Jimmy Carr: Terribly Funny

British comedian, Jimmy Carr, brings his dry humour to South Africa. Jimmy is a household name in UK television, well known for hosting shows including ‘Big Fat Quiz of The Year’, presenting ‘Comedy Central’s Roast Battle UK’, and ‘Your Face or Mine’.

Carr has toured to over 40 different countries. His last tour, ‘Best of Ultimate Gold Greatest Hits’, sold over 480 000 tickets globally with current show, ‘Terribly Funny’, exceeding that figure by the end of 2022.

The tour continues into 2024 with some new shows in South Africa. As Jimmy’s PR takes pains to point out, the show contains jokes about all kinds of “terrible things”. Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love. But – as Jimmy says – they’re just jokes, they are not the terrible things. The show is not suitable for under 16s.

Cost: R915 – R1 565pp, book online via Ticketmaster
