COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS
“JIMMY CARR - FUNNY BUSINESS”
COMEDY TOUR HITS MZANSI SHORES IN APRIL
Be prepared for some Funny Business as Comedy Central and Real Concerts teams up with British comedy ace Jimmy Carr for his latest tour of SA.
Stand-up comedian, television host and actor Carr, known for his signature laugh, deadpan delivery, edgy one-liners and near-the-knuckle humour, has been permitted back in SA for his latest tour - just 2 years after he made audiences gasp as the Roastmaster of The Comedy Central Roast of Kenny Kunene.
The dark-humoured comedian and “8 Out of 10 Cats” host is one of the biggest selling live acts in the world. His gag-tastic tour, Funny Business, will see him perform to over 200,000 people and will form part of an international tour that includes Serbia, Sweden and South Africa. Carr is currently shocking and insulting audiences in Australia.
To celebrate Carr’s latest visit to Mzansi shores, Comedy Central will be airing its funniest Jimmy Carr specials, kicking off with Comedy Central Presents Jimmy Carr (21:25 CAT, Friday 15 April) followed by The Comedy Central Roast of Kenny Kunene(featuring Jimmy Carr) at 21:50 CAT.
Commented Evert van der Veer, Head of Comedy Central, “8 out of 10 South Africans will find “Funny Business” hilarious; the other 2 out of 10 better stay at home… We are delighted to welcome back our Roastmaster, with a fresh new tour and brilliant repertoire designed to break more comedy boundaries in South Africa.”
Funny Business will be staged on 8 April 2016 at the CTICC, Cape Town and on 9 April 2016 at Emperors Palace, Johannesburg. Tickets are available at Computicket priced R425 to R725.
