Comedian Jimmy Carr’s next jab at New Zealand – this time it’s Whanganui

British-Irish comedian Jimmy Carr landed another jab against NZ, cracking a joke about the size of Whanganui, the most recent stop on his Terribly Funny comedy tour.

After already teasing New Plymouth’s “sight (singular)” this week, The comic posted a new photo of a knitted doll version of himself next to the opera house where he will perform in Whanganui.

The population of Whanganui is 45,309 according to Stats NZ.
