COMEDIAN Jimmy Carr will be appearing at the National Opera House in Wexford with his Funny Business gig a week earlier than planned.

Jimmy will on stage at the opera house on at 8 p.m. on Monday, December 7. His Wexford visit had been previously planned for Monday, December 14.

The comedian's promoters said all tickets sold for December 14 can instead be used for the December 7 show.

Live comedy is what Jimmy does best. His stand-up achievements to date include a British Comedy Award for 'Best Live Stand-Up Tour' and a Perrier Award nomination. On stage, he's even funnier and even more outrageous and Funny Business is his brand new stand-up show.

Over 1.5 million people have now seen Jimmy perform live and his new tour will see him play over 200 dates up to this December.
