Chambers Touring Ltd, Comedy Central & Real Concerts presents:
JIMMY CARR ‘THE BEST OF, ULTIMATE, GOLD, GREATEST HITS WORLD TOUR’ NEW LIVE TOUR FOR 2018
plus ‘YOUR FACE OR MINE?’ comes to South Africa

21 & 22 September 2018 – Teatro @ Montecasino, Johannesburg
29 September 2018 – Grand Arena, GrandWest, Cape Town

One of the most prolific joke-tellers there is, Jimmy Carr announces his return to South Africa with his ‘The Best Of, Ultimate, Gold, Greatest Hits World Tour’ and also brings hit TV show ‘Your Face Or Mine?’ to South African screens for the first time.

A true comedy legend with an astonishingly vast repertoire and lightning-sharp delivery honed from fifteen years at the top, Jimmy is gathering a selection of his very best jokes along with brand new material for the ultimate comedy show. A man who has devoted his life to crafting perfect jokes and has left a trail of laughter in his wake, Jimmy Carr’s new tour will distil everything we love to laugh at and be shocked by into one incredible, unparalleled night of entertainment.

Jimmy has been on the stand-up scene for a decade and a half. In that time he’s performed 9 sell-out tours, playing more than 2,000 shows to over 2 million people across 4 continents. He’s won the British Comedy Award for ‘Best Live Stand-Up Tour’ and been nominated for the Perrier Award. Now all that experience is being put to good use – you can see all the greatest material from his extraordinary career in one show - this is the very best of Jimmy Carr.

“Real Concerts are proud to be bringing Jimmy Carr back to South Africa again. His shows are always very entertaining and he has a large fan base in SA so we know these shows will be a sell-out!” adds promoter Roddy Quin from Real Concerts.

And as if the ultimate live show wasn’t enough, Jimmy’s latest television smash-hit ‘Your Face Or Mine’ will also be coming to these shores for the first time. The Comedy Central show sees couples challenged to rate each other on their hotness for the chance to win cash. A perfect gameshow for the Tinder generation or as Jimmy puts it: ‘In an age when people are forever judging individuals on how they look, placing attractiveness on a pedestal above intelligence, and forcing others to fit societal norms of beauty, why not make them do all of those things, to their loved ones, on television and for money?’ Watch the premiere on the 24th November at 21:00 CAT on Comedy Central (DStv channel 122).

Commented Dillon Khan, Vice President for Comedy Central and Creative Services for Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa), “Jimmy Carr is no stranger to Comedy Central Africa having been the Roast Master for the "The Roast of Kenny Kunene" in 2014 and is now back on our screens with his new show “Your Face or Mine” which airs this month. Comedy Central is excited to partner with Jimmy once more and bring his universally appealing yet edgy comedy to South Africa.”

Tickets are available from R425 per person. Bookings at Computicket (Age restriction: PGL - Not suitable for under 16s)

Archstone Pictures currently produces and co-produces 3-5 films per year and has completed production on two films so far this year including the action/thriller “Awaken” and the action/adventure “Out of the Burning Blue” both currently selling at the Cannes market.

The deal was concluded on Tuesday May 19th at the SA Pavillion with Scott Martin and Michael Slifkin Founders and Partners of the Archstone Companies.

Sekwankwetla, which tells a story of a South African township superhero who's super powers are that he can fly but only 10cm high, will be directed by South Africa's award-winning director Teboho Mahlatsi. Popularly known for producing and directing some of the most watched television shows including television series Yizo Yizo, Mahlatsi's short film Portrait of a young man drowning won a Silver Lion in 1999. Mahlatsi was also selected as jury president of the Corto Cortissimo (short film section) of the Venice film Festival.

Archstone Pictures will Co-produce the film along with David Kau's Disadvantaged Background Productions and Mahlatsi's The Bomb Shelter. "We plan to shoot the film on location in South Africa Kwa-Zulu Natal and have already started negotiations with the newly established Kwa-Zulu Natal Film Commission representatives who are also attending the festival to market the province as a best location," says Kau.

South Africa's participation at the Cannes International Film Festival is facilitated by the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF), in partnership with the Kwa-Zulu Natal Film Commission, Durban Film Office and WESGRO. Kau is part of the Association for Transformation in Film and Television sponsored by the department of Trade and Industry ( DTI).
