ADVANCE warning for comedy fans here in 1066 Country - the king of one-line put downs and eyebrow-raising in-your-face-ness is returning to Hastings in the new year.
Jimmy Carr, who has become a firm favourite in this corner of East Sussex, is bringing his latest show to the White Rock Theatre on March 6.
And, if demand is anything like that of his recent jaunts to the Sussex coast, it is a date almost guaranteed to sell out way in advance.
The straight-faced deadpan gagmeister is one of Britain’s most-loved and laughed at comics and a darling of the comedy quiz show - whether as a presenter or a bad taste bar-raising panellist.
Tickets are a fairly pricey £26 (with an annoying £2.50 booking fee) available from the venue’s box office (01424 462288) or online at www..whiterocktheatre.org.uk.
With such a thriving comedy scene here in Hastings and with money tight, it might be a case of weighing up the outlay against two or three smaller but equally demanding of your attention nights.
However, for anyone who has never seen Carr in the flesh, it is a night well worth shelling out for.
It isn’t until March - the best part of 12 weeks away. Start storing the pennies now and look forward to a night of non-stop laughter.
