Carr was criticised in February for seeming to make light of the murders of hundreds of thousands of people from Europe's traveller communities during World War Two.

The description for Terribly Funny 2.0 reads:

“Jimmy’s show contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things.

“Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love.

“But they’re just jokes – they are not the terrible things.

“Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo.

“Now you’ve been warned, buy a ticket.”

Fraser Ward, at the White Rock Theatre, said: “Jimmy Carr has been scrutinised for his outrageous jokes, including a joke made during his Netflix special, His Dark Material. That became the most streamed UK stand-up special of 2021.

“The comedian is well known for his dark humour and unique laugh. Jimmy appears regularly on TV, having hosted Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats and The Big Fat Quiz shows for over 15 years.

“He’s visited Hastings on all of his previous six UK stand-up tours and become one of the most popular comedians amongst White Rock audiences.”
