Jimmy Carr--Live Stand Up 2 is yet another demonstration of just why its star is becoming one of Britain’s most popular live comics. Filmed at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre, it’s an act that’s 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 there’s 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 you’re 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, it’s excellent value too. Heed that 18 certificate, though.--Jon Foster

Product Description

Following the huge success of Jimmy Carr Live, the multi award-winning and critically acclaimed comedian Jimmy Carr returns with a brand new live stand-up DVD.

As the face of Channel 4, Jimmy has risen to become one of the most original and distinctive stars of British Comedy, developing the unique brand of perfectly timed one-liners and deadpan delivery for which he has become so well known.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure genius 7 Nov 2005
Jimmy carr both on and off the telly is a complete deadpan genius. This second stand up, following from last years sensational 'Jimmy carr live' dvd offers more of the same in deadpan and politically incorrect jokes. absolute gem. I cannoect recommend this enough, Jimm carr is the present and future King of comedy

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, a superb second attempt. 19 July 2006
Bottom line is if you liked Jimmy Carr's first stand up dvd then you will like this too. Pure genius. If you are easily offended then this isn't for you, but you would probably already have realised that. One thing that disapointed me slightly was when Jimmy tried to pass off a Ricky Gervais joke as his own, one about Carol Vorderman that Ricky used at one of the TV Awards ceremonies a couple of years ago. That's the only downside! BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy Genius 1 May 2006
Carr is not only a hilarious comedian, but a fantastic actor. He manipulates the audience and his style of not understanding is brilliant. The best comedian I have ever seen, but, be warned - this is not for the easily offended.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first. 7 Nov 2005
I was there for the recording and it is hilarious. Same level of humour as the first, many new jokes with some previously seen re worked and re-introduced. If you want more this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Definite Improvement 5 Jan 2006
While this Stand Up is far from the best stand up comedy show I've ever seen, it still had me in stitches at times.
Contrary to what many people appear to think, the jokes on this DVD are entirely new and different from those on its counterpart - Jimmy Carr Live - while there are similarities, for example, he sticks to the, in my opinion, highly successful formula of picking out differences in class in society. However, the jokes are fresh.
This DVD shows great progress on the part of Jimmy Carr. While the first DVD was packed with hilarious one-liners and used small-ads and letters to offer a bit of variety, this time Carr opts for the much more widely accepted approach of banter around a joke. Instead of short, snappy and entirely unrelated one-liners Carr works his way around the joke before hitting the audience with the punchline.
A sure fire hit for any fan - new or old.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Funny Funny Man 24 April 2006
Jimmy carr is probably one of the best Comidians around. He is one of my favourites alongside Chubby Brown and Bill Baily.

This dvd is realy good value. i laughed all the way through it. It is realy funny the way he mocks and interacts with the audience. i Laughed alot when a girl went to the toilet and he timed her.

This is Great fun You'll enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying for any comedy fan 19 April 2009
Jimmy Carr is typically clever, deadpan and enjoyable with his material in this performance. In my opinion it is not his best live performance although if you enjoy his other material and indeed stnad up comedy in general, you are likely to enjoy this. Unlike this first DVD, 'Jimmy Carr Live' this performance is purely stand up and does not involve other parts, such as letters, adverts and audience interviews. I happened to enjoy his first DVD more although that is personal preference and I would suggest this is still a worthwhile purchase.

This DVD is worth buying just for the moment when Jimmy picks out a girl in the audience and asks her if she's with the bloke she's sitting next to. She just waves her hand and says "Move on." What follows is the best interaction with the audience I've seen by any comedian. The rest of the show is great too.

Best laughs in ages.
If you are easily offended,don't buy as he has the 'old type' non-pc jokes, without being as nasty.
