Product Description

Jimmy Carr marks 10 successful years in comedy with the release of his most controversial DVD to date, Telling Jokes. Featuring over 90 minutes of material that’s just too rude for television, the new DVD sees Jimmy Carr at his best; unleashing his delightfully crafted one-liners upon the nation and putting down brave hecklers.

Slick, sick and definitely not for the easily offended, Jimmy offers a masterclass in comedy as he takes his dry and sardonic wit to a whole new level. And it seems that no-one and nothing is safe from Jimmy’s cutting remarks as he delves into a diverse range of subjects including religion, sex, bullying and somewhat ironically political correctness ...

As Jimmy explains: “It’s not for the faint hearted (the faint hearted should also avoid salt).”

The DVD also features a stack of exclusive extras from Britain’s foremost, multi-award-winning joke technician.

Bonus Material

Jimmy’s Twitter Diary – The best of Jimmy’s ‘140 character’ messages, thoughts, ideas and photos sent whilst on tour using the popular social networking site Twitter are brought to life in this 20 minute extra.

Comedy Central Special – His critically acclaimed half-hour stand-up performance filmed live in New York.

Bonus Stand-up Material – Exclusive unseen out-takes and deleted scenes

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy Genius! 31 Oct 2009
I was fortunate enough to see one of his live shows ("Joke Technician") just a few weeks prior to the recording of this DVD in May - it was brilliant. This DVD showcases some of the best jokes from that tour, and new ones also. Only once or twice did I notice jokes that were in his previous DVDs, but this is full with belly-laughing material; including unique visual slide-show humour, and his attempt at creating the shortest jokes possible using just two to four words! On top of that, with a good 40-minutes of bonus features it really makes this product one of his best yet.

Overall, this DVD is a fantastic example of what Jimmy Carr can do with an audience, and if you didn't get the chance to catch his live show - and even if you did - then this is for you.

Absolutely fantastic! *****

Being a true fan of Jimmy for years and probably knowing every single joke he has ever said, I find this DVD the least favorite. I saw this gig live last year and I bought the DVD about 2 weeks ago. It seems that after 4 brilliant tours, Jimmy's jokes are becoming very predictable with his very few subjects that he tends to joke about; pedophilia, homosexuality, and religion. If you are easily offended, this DVD is not for you, if you are a Jimmy carr fan, this DVD is not for you either. The extra footage are a gig in America with the same jokes as the main gig, some deleted scenes, and some tweets he sent on twitter which aren't really jokes, but rather thoughts that aren't really that funny. In other words, this DVD was put together just to sell something this year unlike the previous DVDs which included hilarious clips and showed true dedication.
I am not saying that it's a rubbish gig with no funny jokes, in fact, there are some really hilarious jokes. But even for someone who doesn't get offended easily, I think there is a limit for how much you can push it before you stop being funny and start sounding like you really want to irritate the people you're meant to be offending even when offense is taken and not given. I think his continious theme of sexual jokes gets boring after some time but that's only because he doesn't seem to change his themes that often anymore unlike his first 2 DVDs.
I rated it 2/5 for the 'not so brilliant' material and the obvious lack of dedication in putting this DVD together in comparison to other DVDs. And the way I know I don't like it is simply by not wanting to watch it again unlike his other DVDs which i've seen MANY times.
I saw his new tour live last october and it seems his next DVD would be much better than this one. If you could wait till next November, then do spare your money till then. It might be worth it. Meanwhile, do buy the new Michael Mcintyre DVD titled "Hello Wembley", as it is brilliant.

I'm an avid fan of Jimmy Carr, have bought his previous stand-up DVDs, and absolutely loved them.

Telling Jokes is a similar format. Plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, and he proves he's still king of the heckler put-downs. You know what to expect with this guy, and if you don't like smut then you should avoid.

That said, a lot of the routine seems a little directionless, using abuse without marrying it to humour, to the point where "yeah I f****d your mum" starts to wear a little thin.

However, as a DVD it's worth buying. The good outweighs the bad, and I suspect hardcore Carr fans will find plenty there to love about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still great, but getting a little stale 30 Dec 2009
By Paul Everdark VINE VOICE
Another year, another Jimmy Carr DVD, and once again, I'm not disappointed. Of all the comedy DVDs that seem to flood the shops come November every year, Jimmy Carr is probably the one I look forward to watching the most. Crude humour is probably not my most favourite kind of humour, but there's no doubting that what Jimmy Carr does he does very well, and is a masterclass in comedy.

That said, it's all starting to become a little over-familiar. It's hard to describe Jimmy as playing-it-safe (how can anyone who cracks jokes about paedophilia, rape and sex be safe?) but quite frankly, it seems to be all Jimmy Carr is about and little else. No matter what the set-up, no matter what the heckle, Jimmy always brings it back to the same seedy subject matter. It may have been risque in the beginning, but Jimmy Carr's fanbase has long been desensitised to it. He's balancing a knife-edge that's long been blunt. Like many active comedians at the moment, he needs to branch-out and mix things up a bit or risk becoming stale, which would be a shame, because there's no denying the comedic skill this man possesses.

That all being said, this is still great stuff, VERY funny and with some brilliant audience interaction (those who have seen it will know what I mean when I mention 'soup' - I dare you not to raise a smile at the thought of that heckle!). Jimmy Carr fans won't be let down, that's for sure. However, here's one fan hoping for a bit of a shake-up next time round.

3.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY... BUT SAME OLD, SAME OLD. 22 Dec 2009
If you've seen Jimmy doing live stand up recently, or seen most of his shows on TV, or have his other DVDs.... then you know what to expect. He knows his stuff, he knows the intricacies of joke construction and telling, read his book The Naked Jape. But don't expect to hear anything you haven't heard from him already..... try Rhod Gilberts DVD..... thats a riot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not one for the easily offended!!
Jimmy Carr never fails to amuse me, although he does push his jokes a little over the line. But that's what makes it a brilliant DVD.
