Comedian Jimmy Carr is coming to Dubai in August
The British comedian and star of TV show 8 Out of 10 Cats will perform his first gig in Dubai on 13 and 14 August at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Part of DXBLaughs, produced by Done Events, the gigs will see Carr bring his Terribly Funny tour to the UAE as part of the 2020 edition of Dubai Summer Surprises – the citywide shopping and entertainment festival now in its 23rd year.
Renowned for his dark humour as much as his distinctive laugh, the comic has promised “three laughs a minute, minimum” and last week told Time Out he was hugely excited to perform in the city.
Both shows will follow the authorities' latest guidelines on social distancing and precautionary safety measures, which will be explained in further detail next week. Tickets start from AED195 per person.
Look forward to taking my tour to Dubai next month. I’ll be telling terribly funny jokes in the Terribly Funny show as part of Dubai Summer Surprises – not sure if 2020 needs more surprises but we’re doing it. @DSSSocial @Dubai_Calendar #MyDSS pic.twitter.com/za2a5mW0rQ— Jimmy Carr (@jimmycarr) July 23, 2020
