Got to admit I haven't seen much of Mr Carr beyond offerings on the Channel Dave, and mostly on QI.

However I had tears down my eyes watching this clip.

In reply to The Lemming: QI is a big pile of sh1t. Jimmy Carr's very funny though.

Carr is the type of comedian that tells lots of jokes, some of these jokes are very funny in my opinion. QI probably isn't the best format for his type of humour.

Who do you find funny?

I know what you mean about comedians sometimes not suiting a shows format. Roy walker was on Just a Minute last week and all he wanted to do was tell jokes and anecdotes. He was not very good at the game but it was quite entertaining.

I think jimmy Carr is funny. I think some of his humour and the repetitive forced laugh on 8 out of 10 cats a little tedious but his stand up is good. I had a live DVD a few years ago which was genius.

Big fan of his most offensive jokes and his support for comedians like Frankie Boyle.

I can't stand him, either.

Comedians are like singers, being good isn't enough - you need to want to listen. I'm not a fan of Carr but he does seem quick witted, but his style doesn't involve getting the audience to like him.

Yes, in total agreement mate. As shit, if not shitter, than the first one.

In reply to The Lemming: I'm not a fan of him, but enjoyed the way he dealt with the hecklers.

Which are worse, hecklers, or those who spend whole comedy gigs on their mobile phones telling people; "I'm seeing Jimmy Carr, he just said..." via facebook and twitter....

Dylan Moran playing Canberra really, REALLY, REALLY ripped into some tit in the front row of the gig who was tapping away on his mobile. (A loud Welsh voice from the second row also addressed that young manís personality and parentage in the vernacular.)
