Announced this morning, Jimmy Carr will now perform a second show at 9:30pm on Sunday, March 5, following the sold-out 7:30pm show.

Tickets for the new show are on sale now via the Geelong Arts Centre here.

The ‘Terribly Funny’ tour contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things. According to the show description, these are “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”.

Catering to “an adult paying audience who’ve got a good idea what’s in store”, audiences can expect that nothing will be off the table here.

“Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo. Now you’ve been warned, enjoy the laughs.”

A comedian that surely needs no introduction, Jimmy Carr has been a comedian for over a decade and a half. He’s performed 10 sell-out tours, playing over 2500 shows to more than 2.5 million people.  He’s won the British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-Up Tour, and been nominated for the Perrier Award.
