Jimmy Carr--Live Stand Up 2
is yet another demonstration of just why its star is becoming one of Britains most popular live comics. Filmed at Londons Bloomsbury Theatre, its an act thats not for the easily offended, but is bursting with laughs and some rapid-fire comeback lines.
Along the way, he delivers his sharp one-liners with admirable consistency, in his trademark deadpan style. Continuing to joke around subject matters that others would choose to leave well alone, he undoubtedly sails close to the wind, but succeeds through a combination of well-written material and superb delivery. His act holds the attention right from the off too, with an opening that sees him communicating with his audience via a giant screen. Trust us, it works.
And theres an unexpected highlight on the DVD too, which almost eclipses the main event. The Comedy Idol programme sees Carr judging a stand-up talent content, which throws up genuine hilarity along with some of the strangest comedic acts youre likely to have seen.
Mix in that, with the main act and generous dose of further bonus material, and Jimmy Carr--Live Stand Up 2 not only offers tremendous entertainment, its excellent value too. Heed that 18 certificate, though.--Jon Foster

Recorded live at London's Bloomsbury theatre, Jimmy unleashes brand new material upon his audience that is just too rude for TV, taking his dry and sardonic wit and delightfully crafted jokes to a whole new level.
