Date issued: 24 October 2018

Colchester Events Company is thrilled to present one of the most prolific joke-tellers of recent times, award-winning comedian, writer and television host Jimmy Carr, as he makes a welcome return to Charter Hall on Saturday 30 November 2019 with his brand-new tour ‘Terribly Funny’.

Tickets for this are predicted to sell fast, with tickets available online on FRIDAY 26 OCTOBER at 10am from the Colchester Events Company website, with an exclusive ticket presale the day before for subscribers to the Colchester Events Company e-newsletter.

The master of deadpan one-liners tours his latest, all-new stand-up show across the UK in 2019. The tour promises the expected dose of Carr-esque humour, as the tour teaser confirms: “Jimmy’s brand 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. Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo. Now you’ve been warned, buy a ticket.”

Jimmy Carr is a veteran fixture on comedy television shows, hosting 8 Out of 10 Cats since 2005, as well as special episodes of Big Fat Quiz and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

One of the biggest-selling live acts in UK comedy, consistently performing to sell-out crowds across the country, his stand-up achievements include a British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-Up, several LAFTA awards and a Perrier Award nomination. He has performed several times in front of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and has achieved combined sales of over a million copies to date of his nine different live DVD releases.

Councillor Nick Barlow, Portfolio Holder for Commercial Services said: “We’re delighted that Jimmy Carr has once again decided to include Charter Hall on his next UK tour. It is fantastic that Colchester is now a ‘must-go’ destination for so many big-name touring comedians, musicians and theatre acts. In addition to this, the recent improvement works at Charter Hall are a great investment into the future of quality entertainment in our town.”

Tickets available from 10am Friday 26 October 2018:
