Arguably one of the UK’s biggest comedians, Jimmy Carr will be bringing his unique brand of comedy to Wrexham this autumn.
The 8 Out Of 10 Cats host will perform this September 26 at Glyndwr University’s William Aston Hall for his latest UK tour – Funny Business - described as witty and incisive musings on the human condition.
He told Digital Spy: “On the new tour Funny Business, I’ll try and tell 250 jokes over two hours. But in order to get 250 jokes that work, I’ve got to write about a thousand.
“I test them out, if a joke doesn’t get a laugh then I’ll never say it again. The audience is a genius – they know what’s funny and what isn’t. They ultimately decide the fate of a joke.
“If they don’t work properly, they’ll end up on Twitter. It’s my version of recycling.”
Having already taken Wrexham by storm last October with two consecutive sell out shows, the reluctantly dubbed ‘hardest working man in comedy’ is back with more quick wit, shocking one-liners and his ruthless deadpan delivery. Also, expect that signature laugh.
If you’re a heckler (which he implores you to be), beware of Carr’s brutally hilarious put-downs.
Renowned for his decade as Cats host, Jimmy is also the host of the Channel 4’s annual comedy panel show Big Fat Quiz of the Year, a regular guest on QI and also appears on Sky’s A League of Their Own.
His stand-up tours have seen him play to a staggering 1.5 million people, as well as impressively selling out shows from across the pond in the likes of Ireland, Canada, Australia, South Africa and now, Wrexham!
Tickets for Jimmy’s 10pm show at Glyndwr University’s William Aston Hall on Friday, September 26th are onsale for £25.
