One of the most original and distinctive stars on television, radio and the stage in the UK, Jimmy Carr is set to tour New Zealand for the first time with his hit solo show, Gagging Order.
Over the past 10 years, Jimmy Carr has deservedly earned his place amongst the very best of British comics. His stand-up achievements to date include a British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand Up Tour, a Loaded LAFTA Award for Best Stand-Up and a Perrier Award nomination.
Having now played to over 1.5 million people on his live tours, Jimmy knows a thing or two about making people laugh. Gagging Order is the chance for New Zealand fans to catch this award-winning comedian at his near-the-knuckle best.
Gagging Order promises to be an hilarious night out. The show will be packed with one-liners, stories and jokes - some clever, some rude and a few totally unacceptable. Everybody’s welcome. Just leave your conscience, sense of common decency and moral compass at home and come on out for a laugh.
On top of his mammoth touring schedule Jimmy has been the host of Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats, for an amazing fifteen series. In April 2013, Jimmy joined forces with David Mitchell, Charlie Brooker and Lauren Laverne once again to host the third series of 10 O’Clock Live for C4. On top of this he has hosted Channel 4’s annual Big Fat Quiz Of the Year since 2004 and also recently completed hosting a series of Big Fat Quiz specials looking back over the 80s, 90s and 00s.
“Jimmy Carr is a world-class comedian…I envy his brilliance with words” Independent

A household name in the UK, Jimmy is also a rising star in the US where his profile continues to grow.
