Serviced Apartments in Portsmouth for events at Portsmouth Guildhall

On January 12th, one of Britain’s funniest comedians, Jimmy Carr, will be performing his new tour, ‘Gagging Order’ at Portsmouth Guildhall. Jimmy has established a career as a writer, actor and presenter of radio and television, as well as rocketing to stardom as one of the UK’s most successful comedians. He’s well known for his deadpan sense of humour and sarcastic wit. His shows are often crude and his official website urges ticket holders to “just leave your conscience, sense of common decency & moral compass at home & come on out for a laugh”.

Although his stand up is enormously popular, Carr is perhaps best known for his appearances on TV shows, both as a host and a guest. One of the most successful shows hosted by Carr is ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’ which is a quiz show based on statistics and opinion polls. The show has two teams which have been captained for stints by Jason Manford, Dave Spikey, Sean Lock and Jon Richardson. Another popular show of Carr’s is the ‘Big Fat Quiz of the Year’ which is an annual quiz programme in the style of a pub quiz. There are two panels which have starred celebrities such as Alan Carr, David Walliams, Jack Dee and Davina McCall. Jimmy has also made guest appearances on programmes such as ‘Have I Got News For You’, ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ and ‘Top Gear’.

Jimmy’s show is sure to be hilarious so if you’re planning on heading to Portsmouth to see him in action, you’ll need to think about accommodation.
