Global comedy superstar Jimmy Carr has announced that he will be returning to Sydney for a performance at the iconic State Theatre in February 2023.
Carr’s new show, entitled 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 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, other than 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 sold-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.
His television credits include over 20 series as host of panel show 8 Out Of 10 Cats, 18 series of spin-off 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown and 10 years presenting Channel 4’s Big Fat Quiz Of The Year. He has also hosted three series of Roast Battle on Comedy Central UK and recorded his own Netflix panel show, The Fix, in 2019, with all episodes available to stream now.
