Product Description

The master of the offensive put-down and the razor-sharp one-liner, stand-up comedian Jimmy Carr performs live at London's Bloomsbury Theatre in 2008.

From Amazon.co.uk

Britain’s foremost multi-award-winning joke technician Jimmy Carr returns with his fourth live stand-up DVD, Jimmy Carr In Concert.

No-one writes sharper or meaner jokes and no-one delivers them better than Jimmy. He commands his audience with twisted little aphorisms - 'the sort of thing you might find in a fortune cookie baked by Satan' (Sunday Herald) - with no-one escaping his biting, withering sarcasm and take-no-prisoners approach to subject matter.

The release also includes a stack of exclusive DVD extras, including a specially commissioned 36-minute cartoon – a montage of Jimmy Carr’s most brutal audience putdowns – brought to life by Jimmy drawn in various different animated guises. Here we get to see Jimmy, amongst other things, as a life-sized puppet, Jimmy ‘cartoonised’, line-drawn and sketched Monty Python-style as he battles and belittles audience members who have dared to heckle!

Bonus Material
Carrtoons - a specially commissioned animated feature starring Jimmy Carr.
Carrtoons Comic Strip - nine bespoke cartoon comic strips.
Alternative subtitles – Australian, Glaswegian, Polish, Scouse and Welsh.

OK. I admit that I am a HUGE fan of Jimmy Carr so this review was always going to be biased, and it would have been easy to award 5 stars without even seeing the show, but no, I have waited until I have watched the DVD + ALL the extras before writing this and I can safely award it 5 stars without predjuduce!

This is Jimmy's 4th DVD, and like the others his performance is spilt up into sections were he simply stands there and delivers his legendary trademark one liners, then sections were he may sit down at a desk/sofa and branch off into side topics. It is impossible to say if this is better or worse than his previous efforts as humour is subjective but I found myself laughing out loud several times, particularly when he is interacting with the audience. This is fast becoming Jimmy's greatest ( & funniest) area of expertise and he has honed his own brand of audience participation into an art form (watch out for the Henry VIII scene which is just soooo funny when he includes someones MUM into his improvised act!)

The extras are very good but it is a case of quality over quantity and there is really ONE extra feature worth watching - he has recorded some (genuine) audience participation & hecklers and then a team of animaters have made little cartoons of them using many different styles - see Jimmy as a muppet, a 2D drawing, a Monty-Python-esque animation, a 3D claymation model etc etc. These are very funny and can easily stand repeated viewings. It lasts about 36 minutes and is one of the better and most original extras I have ever seen on a DVD.

Format: DVD
Jimmy Carr is the ultimate comedian. Nobody else can pull off so many one-liners, rip into hecklers or shave closer to the funny bone than Jimmy. Anyone with even a vague idea of how comedy works will appreciate just how good he is.

First a word of warning: this is not comedy for the easily offended. This is not family-friendly. As Jimmy himself states on the box: "It's rude, crude and offensive but those aren't the only reasons you'll enjoy it."
He's right, too: beneath the risque jokes and smutty humour is a comedic sensibility and intelligence handled by a professional whose tongue is sharper than he dresses. Jimmy knows what he's doing, knows how far he can push it, and takes great delight in seeing his audience squirm. In the hands of anyone else it would just fall apart.

It's hard to say whether 'In Concert' is better or worse than the rest of his DVDs. It's business as usual: some stand-up one-liners, some sit down read-aloud moments, audience participation: indeed, the only new thing brought to the table here is a spot of jazz midway through. Again, Jimmy admits that on the cover: "This DVD is exactly the same as last year's except every single word." Same format, new set.

And why should he change it? It's a winning formula. Rest assured, if you like Jimmy Carr, you'll be right at home here, and you won't be dissapointed. Brilliant.

Format: DVD
well i am a huge fan of jimy carr. Only recently i went to watch his new tour, "Joke Technician", and i have loved all of his work so far.
This DVD is Jimmy's fourth, and was eagerly anticipated by many. Filmed last year at the Bloomsberry, Jimmy once again entertains the audience with his own unique style.
The show is extremely good, with some moments that will have you in stitches (notably his own take on classic jokes as well as his henry VIII scene). Any jimmy carr fan will love it. There is over 90 minutes of show and you will be entertained throughout.
However, i dont feel this is as strong as his third DVD, which was absolutely amazing. It is still one of his better ones though, so i would highly recommend it to any fan of jimmy carr.
This dvd will definetely be around for a while, and i recommend you watch it. The extras include a hilarious 30 plus minute sketch of all his most brutal audience take-downs, which is superb.
This combined with the show makes for a very entertaining dvd. Buy it, watch it, then watch it again, and again, and again.

Format: DVD
This is the 4th Jimmy Carr stand up DVD and it's just as good, if not better, than his previous titles.

Jimmy's interaction with the audience is more pronounced than previous shows - before it was a succession of one-liners, now there are far more put-downs and audience participation, which greatly adds to Jimmy's appeal.

Not only is the show very good, but the DVD extras are spectacular - the 40 min animated skit of various soundbites from Jimmy's gigs around the country is fantastic, and shows the man in great form. The Tutenkhamun gag towards the end is the best bit on the whole disc!

Another fantastic DVD from Mr Carr - definitely worth a look.

I went to the DVD record and it was brilliant - an hour an a half of belly laughing. His jokes are not for the easily offended, but he delivers them with such confidence and a glint in his eye that you're easily bought in. I hope they included his interaction with the audience on the DVD as the banter was hilarious. A must see!
