New live Jimmy Carr tour, plus ‘Your Face or Mine?’ TV show, comes to South Africa from 21 and 22 September 2018 at the Teatro at Montecasino, Johannesburg and 29 September at Grand Arena, GrandWest, Cape Town – also ‘Your Face or Mine?’ TV show hits SA.
One of the most prolific joke-tellers there is, Jimmy Carr announces his return to South Africa with his ‘The Best Of, Ultimate, Gold, Greatest Hits World Tour’ and also brings hit TV show ‘Your Face Or Mine?’ to South African screens for the first time.
A true comedy legend with an astonishingly vast repertoire and lightning-sharp delivery honed from fifteen years at the top, Jimmy is gathering a selection of his very best jokes along with brand new material for the ultimate comedy show. A man who has devoted his life to crafting perfect jokes and has left a trail of laughter in his wake, Jimmy Carr’s new tour will distil everything we love to laugh at and be shocked by into one incredible, unparalleled night of entertainment.
Jimmy has been on the stand-up scene for a decade and a half. In that time he’s performed 9 sell-out tours, playing more than 2 000 shows to over 2 million people across 4 continents. He’s won the British Comedy Award for ‘Best Live Stand-Up Tour’ and been nominated for the Perrier Award. Now all that experience is being put to good use – you can see all the greatest material from his extraordinary career in one show – this is the very best of Jimmy Carr.
“Real Concerts are proud to be bringing Jimmy Carr back to South Africa again. His shows are always very entertaining, and he has a large fan base in SA, so we know these shows will be a sell-out!” adds promoter Roddy Quin from Real Concerts.
And as if the ultimate live show wasn’t enough, Jimmy’s latest television smash-hit ‘Your Face Or Mine’ will also be coming to these shores for the first time. The Comedy Central show sees couples challenged to rate each other on their hotness for the chance to win cash. A perfect gameshow for the Tinder generation or as Jimmy puts it: ‘In an age when people are forever judging individuals on how they look, placing attractiveness on a pedestal above intelligence, and forcing others to fit societal norms of beauty, why not make them do all of those things, to their loved ones, on television and for money?’ Watch the premiere on 24 November at 21:00 CAT on Comedy Central (DStv channel 122).
Commented Dillon Khan, Vice President for Comedy Central and Creative Services for Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa), “Jimmy Carr is no stranger to Comedy Central Africa having been the Roast Master for the “The Roast of Kenny Kunene” in 2014 and is now back on our screens with his new show “Your Face or Mine” which airs this month. Comedy Central is excited to partner with Jimmy once more and bring his universally appealing yet edgy comedy to South Africa.”
