British funny man Jimmy Carr is heading to Dubai Opera


It’ll be the second time this year that the comedienne has headed to the stage in the UAE

And there goes the Eid break just like that, but fret not! There’s still lots of fun and laughter afoot, with The Dubai Comedy Festival on the horizon.

And for those of you who are partial to British satire (who isn’t?), you’ll be glad to hear that British funny man, Jimmy Carr is heading back to the UAE as part of the Dubai Comedy Festival.

It’ll be the second time this year that he’ll be heading to the stage in the UAE, after, back in January, he caused a barrel of laughs at Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi, which was part of his Terribly Funny 2.0 tour.

Pushing all political correctness aside, this intelligent comic is bound to be just terrible – terrible jokes about terrible things that happen to you and me! Before you star getting host under the collar, just remember that there are just jokes!

You’ve been warned!
