Comedian Carr adds record FIFTH Dudley stand-up date
Jimmy Carr has added an unprecedented fifth Dudley date to his current UK tour, it has been revealed.
The TV comic has already performed four sold-out dates of his latest show, called Terribly Funny, at Dudley Town Hall this year, with two in May and two in September.
He has now added a fifth date, and will be back at the St James’s Road venue on Friday January 31.
Tickets for the new show go on sale at 10am on Friday and are expected to go quickly.
The hugely popular comedian is one of the world’s most recognisable stand-ups and is the host of programmes such as 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, The Big Fat Quiz of the Year and Comedy Roast.
The 46-year-old, as well as appearing on Live At The Apollo, has also been on countless other comedy panel shows including A League Of Their Own, Have I Got News For You, Celebrity Juice, QI and Room 101.
Rupert Knowlden, manager of Dudley Town Hall, said:
Off the back of four sold out performances with us already, we’re excited to announce an unprecedented fifth show with Jimmy Carr at Dudley Town Hall.
Jimmy is one of the world’s most popular stand-ups and his ‘Terribly Funny’ tour show is certainly proving a massive hit with audiences in the Black Country.
Tickets cost £29.50 and are available online from Friday at www.boroughhalls.co.uk or by calling the box office on (01384) 812812. Doors will open at 6pm, with the show starting at 7pm.
