Jimmy Carr to headline Derby Comedy Festival

Jimmy Carr - Funny Business

Mon 22 Dec 2014

We’re pleased to be able to announce that our headline act for the 2015 Derby Comedy Festival will be Jimmy Carr with his hit Funny Business show!

Jimmy’s been described as ‘the hardest working man in comedy’. Which, let’s face facts, is not that impressive. It’s like being the ‘tallest dwarf’ or the ‘healthiest Glaswegian’. Really not that big a deal. Funny Business is Jimmy’s brand new stand up show. Audiences should come for the witty and incisive musings on the human condition and stay for the knob gags.

The announcement of Jimmy as headliner for the festival is really good news as his show in last year’s festival had to be cancelled due to the closure of the Assembly Rooms.

Jimmy will be performing at the Derby Arena on Fri 10 Jul and there will be a 48hour pre-sale for all those who had tickets to see him at last year’s festival. Tickets will go on general sale on Wed 24 Dec at 10am (just in time for Christmas!)
