JIMMY CARR RETURNS TO DERBY ARENA WITH HIS GREATEST HITS TOUR

Derby LIVE is pleased to announce that comedian Jimmy Carr will be returning to Derby Arena on Saturday 8 July 2017 as part of his Jimmy Carr: The Best Of, Ultimate, Gold, Greatest Hits Tour.

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 Carr has been on the stand-up scene for a decade and a half. In that time he’s performed 9 sell-out tours, playing nearly 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.
 
The Arena’s main space will be transformed into a blacked-out fully-functioning theatre, which was a huge success for last year’s Pantomime.
 
Jimmy Carr: The Best Of, Ultimate, Gold, Greatest Hits Tour will take place at Derby Arena on Saturday 8 July, 2017 at 8pm. Tickets go on sale with Derby LIVE on Friday 7 October at 10am, priced at £28.50. This event is not suitable for under 16s. These can be purchased from the Derby LIVE Box Office on 01332 255800 or online at derbylive.co.uk and also in person from the Sales and Information Centre, Assembly Rooms, Market Place, Derby, DE1 3AH.
