Moontower Comedy Festival is thrilled to have landed the international superstar Jimmy Carr who is touring the U.S. for the first time! His show sold in a flash (no surprise) but Jimmy will be popping up in clubs around the fest, so buy a fan badge and you can catch one of the hottest international acts of the weekend.

Jimmy Carr is never off the telly (this year saw him host the third series of 10 O’Clock Live, the fifteenth series of 8 Out of 10 Cats and special episodes of Big Fat Quiz and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown). In fact, he’s been described as ‘the hardest working man in comedy’ but, let’s face facts, that’s not that impressive. It’s like being ‘the tallest dwarf’ or ‘the healthiest Scotsman’.

Live comedy is what Jimmy does best. His stand-up achievements to date include a British Comedy Award for ‘Best Live Stand-Up Tour’ and a Perrier Award nomination. On stage, he’s even funnier and even more outrageous and Funny Business is his brand new stand-up show.

Over 1.5 million people have now seen Jimmy perform live and his new tour has seen him play over 200 dates around the United Kingdom between April 2014 and November 2015. Now it’s the rest of the world’s turn.

Funny Business is a chance to see Jimmy doing what he does best.

Come for the witty and incisive musings on the human condition; stay for the knob gags.
