We all know comedy gets away with a lot, terrible things. 2020 Jimmy Carr is getting away with jokes about terrible things but to hell with political correctness, it has no place on the stage of comedy.
London born and bred Jimmy Carr was your straight A student from Cambridge. Carr never imagined he would end up on the stage, presenting comedy. After spending years of being a brainiac, Carr accepted a marketing position with an international oil company but soon after he realised he just wasn’t cut out for a desk job. He took the plunge into the world of comedy and is now a prominent comedian.
His career in stand-up comedy really kicked off then he received recognition at the Royal Variety Performance in 2003 and won the Royal Television Society Award for best on-screen newcomer. He sold out the entire month’s performances of his Edinburgh Festival show Charm Offensive by the second day of the festival. The same year, he was listed in The Observer as one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy!
In 2004 he had released his first stand-up DVD called Jimmy Carr Live and followed up the tradition the year after with another stand-up DVD called Jimmy Carr Stand Up. Both have sold over 150,000 copies. He went on to host game shows such as Your Face or Mine and released his first critically acclaimed comedy DVD. He soon became the face of Britain’s famous TV hit shows, 8 out of 10 cats and The Friday Night Project. Carr made headway in the US when he performed four times on NBC’s Tonight with Jay Leno and three times on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’ Brian!
Today we all know him as one of Channel 4’s most recognisable faces and funniest television personalities. Famous for his deadpan delivery, dark humour, and heckler interaction, Carr has always taken the unapologetic approach for his humour of very serious and terrible things! It may have got him into trouble in the past but he’s not stopping there. Making his way to Symphony Hall this March 2020, you can catch him in all things terrible!
