I have been watching some of Jimmy Carr’s material recently. Very funny stuff, I hadn’t seen much of him before, only on those Channel 4 adverts and making guest appearances on shows like Have I Got News For You. Then last Friday Channel 4 aired one of his stand up shows, thought it was so funny I ordered his new DVD (Jimmy Carr Stand Up) which I have watched twice already, once last night and again with a friend this evening.


It’s easy to do an impression of Jimmy.
Just talk in a posh, fast and quite voice.

In a similar manner to Peter Kay or Dave Spikey (other favourites of mine), Carr’s humour focuses on issues his audience can all relate to. That however is the only similarity to the Phoenix Nights duo. Carr is a lot more crude, blunt and to the point.

His interaction with the crowd, especially those (un)fortunate enough to be sitting on the front row is quality making up some of the best moments of this show. I would really like to see him live when he tours again although personally would make a good attempt to hide away from him and the bunt of his jokes, hopefully get a seat behind a long tall pillar, or a big fat person.

I highly recommend you see this DVD, it is just so funny. If you are given it for Christmas you are in for a treat.

Here is just a few of the jokes featured on the DVD. I will say, unlike a lot of acts Jimmy Carr isn’t just about jokes and gags. There is so much more to his performances, so even if these don’t make you laugh you should still check out his disc.

What’s worse than finding a worm in your apple?
Being raped

I was asked to judge Mr. Gay UK.
He’s against nature, he’s against God and he’s going to Hell.

I broke up with a girl once because she lied about her weight.
She died in a bungee jumping accident.

On Remembrance Sunday do spare a thought for the German ex-servicemen.
At least our old soldiers are remembering winning.

Two things you should always leave on overnight – fridges and life support machines.
If not you’ll lose an awful lot of vegetables.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
