Collection of Carr's one liners - if you enjoy him much recommended
on 22 February 2011
If Jimmy Carr is your cup of tea, the DVD is unlikely to disappoint - it features a show from his recent tour (recorded in Glasgow), together with some earlier appearances in Montreal (2003, 2006, 2007) and the after show signing session in Glasgow as extras. The extras are similar in style and are a good complement to the main show.
It mostly consists of one liners, not unlike his other work. He interacts pretty well with the audience and manages to both pay them back in kind, as well as be fairly acceptable and friendly at the same time. He certainly goes a bit further than on '8 out of 10 cats', as this is a DVD and not subject to the same 'propriety' criteria but compared to the recent Frankie Boyle he is pretty palatable - maybe still not something one would want to watch with ones parents (cannot really think of stand up comedy one would) but certainly something you can give as a gift without worrying about negative consequences.
With the exception of someone like Stephen Fry, I guess Jimmy Carr is still one of the more cerebral comedy acts out there and he's no different on this DVD.
