Jimmy Carr, Sheffield City Hall
The comedian and acerbic host of TV shows such as 8 Out of 10 Cats and 10 O’Clock Live on Channel 4 is in Sheffield with his new Gagging Order tour.
Carr found himself in the middle of a storm last year when it emerged that he had been using the offshore K2 tax avoidance scheme.
He was even criticised by Prime Minister David Cameron.
Carr had to apologise for “a terrible error of judgement” and has been heckled at live shows, including a headlining appearance at a charity event in London last month.
The blurb for the show says it will be “packed with one-liners, stories and jokes.
“Some clever, some rude and a few totally unacceptable.
“Everybody’s welcome. Just leave your conscience, sense of common decency and moral compass at home and come on out for a laugh.
“Jimmy has sold over a million DVDs and hosted countless TV shows but live comedy is what he does best, come and see for yourself.”
So you can’t say you haven’t been warned.
Jimmy is back in Sheffield for another Gagging Order appearance at the City Hall on Friday, September 13.
Tickets are available online at www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk, in person at the City Hall Box Office or by phone on 0114 2 789 789.
Meanwhile, at the City Hall Memorial Hall on Friday and Saturday nights, it’s business as usual for Last Laugh.
Their regular twice-weekly comedy night features hostToby Foster, Jonathan Mayor, Dom Woodward and Richard Morton. Details: lastlaughcomedy.co.uk.
