Jimmy Carr’s Terribly Funny Tour returns to the UK and Ireland, with 2020 and 2021 show dates all over the country. Find out where and when he'll be performing near you.

We’ve gathered all the info you’ll need here so you can be there when the controversial comedian comes to your town or city. 

Having begun in May 2019 and suspended from March 2020, the remainder of the “8 Out of 10 Cats” host’s tour is now planning to come back around the country amid social distancing measures. In total, the tour consisted in over 170 shows across the UK and Ireland. Known for joking about religion, politics, sex and other taboo topics, is there any question as to what Terribly Funny will be about?

A press statement about the show says, ‘The new show 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.” 

It continues, “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.”

Naturally, the comedian has already managed to incite massive backlash over a joke about dwarfism — but it wouldn’t be a Jimmy Carr show without a little controversy, now would it? Somehow, between fanning the flames of political correctness, touring the UK and Ireland, and his television obligations, he has also managed to launch a fairly massive Netflix career. 

Carr joined Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan and African-American actor D.L. Hughley on Netflix’s panel show “The Fix” last December, as well as his own special this past March: “Jimmy Carr: The Best of, Ultimate, Gold, Greatest Hits”. In 2015, his stand-up set “Funny Business” was the streamer’s first from a British funnyman.

While it may be difficult to mimic a laugh as unique as Jimmy Carr’s, you can certainly try at his Terribly Funny Tour. Keep reading for everything you need to know before you go, and click the link below for tickets.
