Terribly Funny In AUS & NZ
VuePix Infiled screens for Jimmy Carr shows.
As the star of the UK’s most streamed Netflix comedy special of 2021, Jimmy Carr is back on the road in Australia and New Zealand with his brand new ‘Terribly Funny’ tour. From intimate theatres and smaller venues — where you can be drawn into the show — to large arenas, 32 shows will be performed across the two countries.
Elite Event Technology were appointed to provide a full AV production for the two arena shows in Wollongong. As usual, they used VuePix Infiled ER series screens as their main digital platforms for these shows.
A large VuePix Digital Wall, 7m wide and 4m tall, was set up as a centrepiece on the stage, running eye catching visuals throughout the entire show. Two additional 5.5x3m LED screens were set up as iMAG screens, one on each side to make sure all Jimmy’s fans get most of the show in these large arenas. The show and lighting design was led by Alex Saad, who was also a production manager for the show.
“We have owned the VuePix ER4 panels for almost 6 years now, and they just keep delivering a rock-solid performance with every gig we deploy, indoors or outdoors,” comments Darren Russell, MD of Elite Event Technology. “Our crew also thoroughly enjoyed working on Jimmy’s gig. He is just brilliant, and made us laugh through the entire show. After selling out the first show in an arena this size, we now understand why a second show was slotted into the tour a month later.”
