Jimmy Carr, who'll be playing Palma in August.


Jimmy Carr, one of the most prolific joke-tellers of recent times, will be making a one-off performance at the Auditorium in Palma on 23 August.

With an astonishingly vast repertoire and lightning-sharp delivery honed from fifteen years at the top, 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 nine sell-out tours, playing nearly 2,000 shows to over two million people across four 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. Uou can see all the greatest material from his extraordinary career in one show - this is the very best of Jimmy Carr.

After becoming established as a stand-up comedian, Carr began to appear in a number of Channel 4 television shows, becoming the host of the panel show 8 Out of 10 Cats and also The Big Fat Quiz of the Year, a comedy panel show that airs each December to review the past year.

Carr was a guest presenter for one edition of Have I Got News for You. Later, he joined Ian Hislop’s team in the edition of the show first shown on 30 November 2007, chaired by Ann Widdecombe with whom he "flirted" outrageously. Widdecombe later stated: "I don’t think I shall return to this programme." Carr has appeared on Never Mind the Buzzcocks twice. He has appeared on at least one episode per season of A League of Their Own and QI. During a guest appearance on Top Gear, Carr set a new celebrity test track lap record on the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment. He was described as "the worst driver we’ve ever had" and "the luckiest man alive" by Top Gear’s test driver the Stig.

He has been acclaimed as "a comedy hero for our times’" by The Guardian and "a world-class comedian" by The Independent.
