Jimmy Carr returns with a brand new live stand-up DVD. Recorded live at London's Bloomsbury theatre, Jimmy unleashes brand new material upon his audience that is just too rude for TV, ... See full summary »
Award-winning actor/comedian Ricky Gervais' first-ever HBO stand-up special features his unique takes on such disparate issues as fund-raising, autism, fame, nursery rhymes, Nazis, moronic friends, obesity and more.
Jimmy Carr on his fourth tour and DVD shows no signs of slowing down, in fact, he gets better with jokes and delivery, ruder and more offensive, and just more enjoyable to watch. In the show he does his usual observational and close to the mark jokes about many subjects, and he also has routines of re-written kids' jokes; observing his show's reviews, the Para-Olympics and graffiti, a poem, moral dilemmas, attempted improvisation with audience participation, and a five minute break comedy (yeah, right!) for ideas and thought with a jazz trio playing and atmosphere (smoke). The DVD special feature is recorded sound from many of his tour shows of Carr interacting with members of his audience, with nine types of animation added to fit his image, i.e. Carrtoons, including traditional cell animation, puppetry and stop-motion. Jimmy Carr was number 12 on 100 Greatest Stand-Ups. Very good!
