Jimmy Carr to headline Derby Comedy Festival | Derby LIVE

Mon 22 Dec 2014 We’re pleased to be able to announce that our headline act for the 2015 Derby Comedy Festival will be Jimmy Carr with his hit Funny Business show!Jimmy’s been described as ‘the hardest working man in comedy’. Which, let’s face facts, is not that impressive. It’s like being the ‘tallest dwarf’ or the ‘healthiest Glaswegian’. Really not that big a deal. Funny Business is Jimmy’s brand new stand up show. Audiences should come for the witty and incisive musings on the human condition and stay for the knob gags.The announcement of Jimmy as headliner for the festival is really good news as his show in last year’s festival had to be cancelled due to the closure of the Assembly Rooms.Jimmy will be performing at the Derby Arena on Fri 10 Jul and there will be a 48 hour pre-sale for all those who had tickets to see him at last year’s festival. Tickets are on general sale from 24 Dec 2014

FLOWN

Derby Theatre and Déda in association with Crying Out Loud on behalf of Circus Evolution present

12–13 September

FLOWN

By Pirates of the Carabina

Get ready for a captivating night at the circus packed with thrills, extraordinary feats, laughs and fantastic live music.

Our stunning troupe of acrobats, aerialists, daredevil stuntmen and musicians are going to put on a jaw-dropping spectacle for you.

But there’s a problem; no one is prepared and mishaps, disasters and disagreements threaten to wreck the show. A flying aerialist is still ironing her dress, a cranky diva gets tangled in the rigging, and is that one of the stuntmen dangling from the lighting bar?

Flown is confidently choreographed chaos. It’s big, beautiful and bonkers; an experience for everyone to treasure.

Flown is presented by Derby Theatre and Déda in association with Crying Out Loud on behalf of Circus Evolution.

The Friday evening performance of Flown will launch Derby Festé, learn more about this fantastic city-wide event here.
