Reviews

Having performed live to over 1.2m people, the UK’s hardest working comedian Jimmy Carr, is back with his brand new stand-up DVD.

Star of hit TV shows 8 Out of 10 Cats and 10 O’clock Live, Jimmy is well known for his slick one liners and non-stop gags, but his acerbic wit and fast-paced comedy style are at their brilliant best when he has the stage to himself.

Packed with over 100 minutes of brand new material, including too-rude-for-TV jokes, hilarious heckling, and even better put-downs, Jimmy pushes the boundaries of comedy and delivers a spectacular show.

Produced by Sam Pinnell
Directed by Paul Wheeler
Executive Producers Iain Morris and Damon Beesley

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny, but not as good as the rest. 26 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
Jimmy Carr is by far my favourite comedian, and I continue to laugh as his previous DVD despite multiple viewings.

This one however did not have many great moments.

As said in another review, some of the material is repetitive, some of it is just not funny.

The whole dragged out accent sequence was quite boring, as was the 'interview' on stage, (however that was very funny when done in a past DVD with the Irish lady).

The 'come back' joke was brilliant though.

One thing I noticed about this DVD was Jimmy explained the jokes on occasion, the subtle jokes that some may get and others not were some of his greatest moments, the dryness of the delivery.

To then continue just to clarify for those who may not have got it, made the joke less funny.

I was disappointed as I was looking forward to this release for a while.

I adore Jimmy Carr. I have seem him live several times and own all his previous DVD's. And as much as it pains me to say it, I feel this is the weakest entry so far.

For the first time ever I noticed several gags have already been used before, and I personally feel there is an over reliance on the visual cartoons that we have seen Jimmy make increasing use of on the overhead projection screens. They even use the autocue as a warm up act....AGAIN! It's just beginning to feel a bit tired and there weren't any great stand out moments for me. Perhaps because this is his 7th DVD then maybe I am simply getting used to his style of delivery and his deadpan one liners, but it just feels a bit lacking.

Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad DVD; just not as good as some of his previous ones. There is enjoyment to be had here and an average Jimmy Carr DVD is better than most tripe other comics churn out at Christmas, but some of his earlier stuff felt more edgy and daring.
