Jimmy's Gagging Order promises Carr-crash comedy - new 2012/13 Jimmy Carr tour on sale Friday 4th Nov
Before we start, here is some news courtesy of comedian Jimmy Carr (taken from his Twitterings):
It was officially the end of British Summertime yesterday, as opposed to the unofficial end which was in June.
The Eurozone leaders are looking for a stimulus package. Silvio Burlosconi suggests two Viagra and a Red Bull.
The host of Jim'll Fix It has died. I guess he finally got round to reading my letter.
Dozens have answered a job advert to have flaming knives thrown at them. I didn't know Gordon Ramsey was hiring.
...and that's kind of the beauty with Carr - he can tell a straight-laced gag about changing our clocks one minute, then upset dead celebrities the next (and to be fair to Jimmy, he did post an RIP footnote about the legendary Jimmy Saville on his page straight afterwards).
The thing is, if you don't like edgy, sharp-tongued comedy, this man really isn't for you - if you are NOT of that typical British mickey-taking mentality, or of an 'if-you-can't-laugh-at-life-and-death-what-can-you-laugh-at?' mindset, it's probably best to save your money and go see Keith Harris and Orville. Or eat a jar of diet mayonnaise for an evening, the after-effects are similar. See, even I'm being nasty (just kidding comedy-duck fans). Whatever, his trickery with language and observation is second to none.
Jimmy Carr's last show was entitled "Laughter Therapy" and billed with the legend, "if you have a sick sense of humour maybe laughter is the best medicine", so heaven only knows what he's got planned for "Gagging Order", his 2012/13 tour's title! The first dates have been trickling through this morning, with the first shows confirmed for far-reaching towns including Aberystwyth (16th Feb), then Salford, Salisbury, Felixstowe, Basingstoke, Bradford, Plymouth and many more.
Tickets are due to go on sale this Friday at 9am and demand is bound to be high for the hilarious offender - some of the venues are in smaller venues and will sell out quickly! We will keep you informed of any warm-up shows announced before hand.
