A limited number of tickets are still available for Jimmy Carr’s stop in Regina for the Terribly Funny world tour.

The show is scheduled for Monday night at the Conexus Arts Centre.

One of the world’s best-selling comedy acts, Carr was the first British comedian to sign a stand-up deal with Netflix, releasing three specials: Funny Business (2016), Best of Ultimate Gold Greatest Hits (2017), and His Dark Material (2021). The latter was the most-watched comedy special by Netflix in the UK.

Carr was a host and executive producer on the Netflix panel show The Fix. He has also been a guest on U.S. late-night talk programs like The Tonight Show, The Late Late Show, and Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

Carr’s memoir, Before & Laughter, made the Sunday Times Bestsellers list.
