Jimmy Carr: Telling Jokes
11 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jimmy Carr here plays his fifth live stand up tour on another DVD, every show seems to get better and better with his fast delivery, rude and offensive jokes, and still overly enjoyable watching. He plays to the audience with his usual observational and true to life subjects, including his routines about boobs, the Welsh, going through some jokes with visual photos on screen (including a photo of young Carr himself), short jokes with as few words as possible, responding to a lawyer wannabe heckler, he talks to a few audience members, his opinions and insights into religion, frequently asked questions answered and some from the audience, relationship advice, moral dilemmas and chat up lines, sex tips and myths, and seeing the audience react to the offensive jokes, growing and growing, including about the death of Princess Diana, the Twin Towers, retarded children, felching, abortion, and the Holocaust, he also describes what is the most offensive joke ever about a cartoon depicting Mohammed with a bomb as a hat, causing riots and deaths. The DVD special features include Carr's past twitter comments narrated by him and accompanied by his photos, an appearance on Comedy Central, and extra deleted scenes and outtakes from the show. Jimmy Carr was number 12 on 100 Greatest Stand-Ups. Very good!
