What to expect from Jimmy Carr in Harrogate (that we can share...!)

Published at 8:46am 10th October 2017. (Updated at 8:49am 10th October 2017)

The Harrogate Comedy Festival is well underway and tonight the spa town is graced by comedy royalty. Host of Channel 4's 8 out of 10 Cats, regular guest on panel shows such as QI and all round funny man, Jimmy Carr.

Of course, the show is all sold out, but if you've been lucky enough to get a ticket what can you expect? And, if you haven't what will you be missing?

We've scoured the internet to see what we can find, and, truthfully, there isn't that much that suits our family audience...

Nevertheless we've gathered a couple of clips that might just get you in the mood for a laugh.
