...It really is that simple. Personally I think Jimmy Carr is a genius. I like the variety of his one-liners; a lot of them I have to stop & think, swiftly followed by an episode of laughter and others are your typical irony and sarcasm. What I think makes him PARTICULARLY GOOD COMEDIAN, is the way he interacts with the audience & his ability to reduce a heckler to nothing in a split second, which comes across in the DVDs as well as live. If you have his first two DVDs, heres my particular ranking:
1st - Jimmy Carr Live
2nd - Jimmy Carr Comedian (this one)
3rd - Jimmy Carr Stand-up
...although it is worth noting it's a tough decision, they are all of a great standard of comedy! Hope you laugh as much as I did.
