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. $488-888 from hk­tick­et­ing.com. The Hong Kong Dance Com­pany’s new ex­per­i­men­tal dance per­for­mance is based on the Chi­nese lit­er­ary folk­tale “Dream of the

Red Cham­ber.” In this tale, a god­dess who cre­ated mankind casts out a stone, which is then in­car­nated into a mor­tal boy, who leads a life of drama and fam­ily feuds. In “Rev­er­ies of the Red Cham­ber,” the dance com­pany takes on three dif­fer­ent in­ter­pre­ta­tions of the story, bring­ing it to life and to the con­tem­po­rary mind through po­etry and move­ment. Aug 5-7, 7:45pm; Aug 6-7, 3pm. Stu­dio Theatre, Cul­tural Cen­tre, 10 Sal­is­bury Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui. $250 (free seat­ing) from hk­dance.com.
