About Jimmy Carr


James Anthony Patrick "Jimmy" Carr was born in Isleworth, West London, to parents hailing form Limerick, Ireland. Carr studied in High Wycombe before graduating with a degree in Political Sciences from Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge. He first started with hosting game shows on Channel 4, & his wisecracks & unparalleled originality caught the imagination of the public. Your Face or Mine? & Distraction ran till 2004. Distraction in particular raked up the plaudits as the whacky innovative format was complemented by his spontaneous outrageous comedy. In 2005, Carr signed for 8 Out of 10 Cats, a project he still works with, & The Big Fat Quiz of the Year. Carr was also active on BBC Radio 4 with Loose Ends during this period, teaming up with Iain Morris as an interviewer & frequent guest. His stand-up comedy tours fill up an already hectic itinerary as he has performed every five weeks. The spell began with 2005's Charm Offensive that sold out his shows at the Edinburgh Festival. Performing at the Galway & Glasgow Festivals as well, his show at The Bloomsbury Theater was his first live DVD recording. Ever since Live was released in November 2004, Carr has made it a habit to produce a DVD each November, & mostly the results have been predictably good. Carr's observational comedy & satire are well-appreciated, though he has really made a mark (& courted some controversy) with his black comedy routines touching on taboo topics like chauvinism, violent crime, racism & morbid humor.

Carr burst onto the scene with the phenomenal success of his standup routines. A second-day sellout of the whole month's shows of his Edinburgh Festival presentation, Charmed Offensive, set the tone. 2005's A Public Display of Affection garnered rave reviews, & there was no letting up when he returned to the Edinburgh Festival with Off the Telly. 2006's universally acclaimed Gag Reflex brought the house down as Carr won the British Comedy Award for Best Stand Up. By this time, he had also released three DVDs, Live, Stand Up & Live Collection; all recorded in London's Bloomsbury Theater. Carr performed Repeat Offender at the 2007 Edinburgh Festival, also doing the show Joke Technician the following year. For each of the previous three Novembers, DVDs entitled Comedian, In Concert & Telling Jokes have been released, with Making People Laugh slated for this November. Carr's thrilling, side-splitting quips also made him the architect of the great success of the show Distraction, where he hosted contestants who were asked simple questions but were often distracted by bizarre & offensive situations from answering correctly. The show earned him a Rose D'Or nomination, while he won LAFTAs in 2005, 2007 & 2008.

Carr's style is unique which has led to drastically mixed reaction for some of his works. His honest, no holds barred opinion about matters is often well-received. Fans with Jimmy Carr tickets have been thoroughly entertained by his previous tours in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Galway & Leicester, & hope for more of the same unabashed daring from their talisman.

With a rapid-fire deadpan delivery & content that is sure to keep you glued to the edges of your seats, Jimmy Carr talent's is unquestionable. The fan brigade will be out in full force with their Jimmy Carr tickets for his Rapier Wit Tour.
