I dont know why people are complaining about his style. His delivery is dry, yes, but that is his brand of humout. This isn't Ricky Gervais, much the same as Ricky isn't the Krankies!
So he may offend people, but that's the nature of humour. Derek & Clive (Cook & Moore) are far far more offensive, but came about in a time where political correctness had absolutely no bearing.
Yes, this DVD is full of 1-line gags, but it isn't supposed to be a sketch show, if that's what you want, you're looking for "The Fast Show: Live".
Make your own mind up about what you find funny, but this isn't like his annaesthetised TV shows, he is allowed to let his dry annoyance of the world run free, and it's all the better for it.
Summary: Not for those who are easily offended, much like any other comedy rated 18 or above. Use your common
Also the DVD has an extensive amount of extras which is an extra bonus.
Definitely worth a look.
Thank goodness Carr's performances have improved since this effort. While this show is a good buy for a Carr fan, general comedy fans shouldn't bother. The show is basically two hours of one-liners, delivered with such regularity and lack of innovation that he might as well be reading from an autocue. The show is obviously completely scripted and well-rehearsed beforehand. Some of the jokes are funny, yes, but in 2004 Carr didn't quite have the experience and spontaneity that stand-up needs.

Seen Jimmy Carr live a couple of times recently and he really is a genius. This DVD however does not match up to his more recent performances. Read morePublished on 30 May 2009 by Mr. C. Ryder
Carr makes use a long display of clever one-liners in a style delivery style, although he is witty and original in his own style, his act does seem to grow tiresome about half way... Read morePublished on 28 Dec. 2006 by Jonny Smith
While this guy is obviously very quick at quirky responses, it doesn't do him justice to have a stand up DVD. Read morePublished on 16 Jan. 2006 by Matt
Jimmy Carr is someone who thinks he is very claver when actually he's as intelligent as a bowl of dead sparrows. If you like your jokes unfunny then Carr is your man. Read morePublished on 13 April 2005 by Hob
