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, 7pm, 9:15pm; Aug 25, 8pm. King George V School, 2 Tin Kwong Rd., Ho Man Tin.
