5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny, 30 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Jimmy Carr: Live Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Jimmy Carr is very much a love/hate comedian - you either love his brand of comedy or can't stand the guy. Well I'm in the corner that enjoys his style of humour. Basically he throws out a series of one-liners at a rather impressive rate. Some are genuinely clever lines where he plays on words to give them another meaning, with hilarious if often politically incorrect results. Other jokes you simply have to hold your head in your hands and shake your head in disbelief that someone could actually make the lamest one-liners imaginable sound funny. Yet he somehow does it with almost perfect comic timing.

This 2 disc set features both of his critically acclaimed stand up shows - Jimmy Carr Live and Stand Up. Both are equally funny and contain some reasonable extras. Live includes his breakthrough 10 minute Royal Variety performance, Small Ads (where he recalls genuine adverts he placed in newspapers and magazines with somewhat dubious content) and a few other extras to take up some 20+ minutes of your time on top of the 8o minute live stand up show. Stand Up feautures extras such as Comedy Idol (a comedy version of Pop Idol where Jimmy is one of the judges) and his splendid 20 minute Comedy Central performance from America - in total about 90 minutes of extras as well as the main 80 minute attraction.

All in all this collection represents good value for money and is very enjoyable as long as you are not easily offended. Recommended.
