Jimmy Carr in Hong Kong

One of the biggest com­edy names to come out of the UK, Jimmy Carr makes his Hong Kong de­but in Au­gust. The host of TV panel show “8 Out of 10 Cats” and fre­quent guest on “QI,” he’s legendary for his brash, cheeky hu­mor. Guar­an­teed in the show: of­fen­sive one-lin­ers, rude anec­dotes, and way too many jokes about his knob (but that’s why you’re go­ing, isn’t it?). Aug 24-25, 8pm. King Ge­orge V School, 2 Tin Kwong Rd., Ho Man Tin. $488-888 from hk­tick­et­ing.com/events/ HMJIMMY0816. In this aus­pi­cious Year of the Mon­key, two dif­fer­ent groups of per­form­ers rep­re­sent­ing the unique south­ern and north­ern styles of Chi­nese opera are com­ing to Hong Kong to per­form the sto­ries of the legendary Mon­key King. From late June and late July, Chi­nese opera afi­ciona­dos and those who are just cu­ri­ous can come check out the finest mar­tial artists and vir­tu­osic per­form­ers from the Shao Opera Art Re­search in­sti­tute of Zhe­jiang and Youth Troupe of the Pek­ing Opera Theatre of Bei­jing, as they bring some of the most beloved tales of the Mon­key King to the big stage.
