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.
This was the sixth stand up tour and DVD release for Jimmy Carr once again presenting his smart demeanour and dress sense, observational and still as rude jokes covering many subjects. Routines and discussions in the show include the return of the screen warm up act with text jokes, his views on women, people from a certain place, i.e. the Scottish, Scousers, accents, a near twenty minute guide to his mind with animated pictures, with ideas, problem solving, facts, language, fears, faith & spirituality, dumb things, social issues and love (sex), his views on charity, old people and ageing, talking during sex - the most mundane things to say, weight, writing an autobiography with notes and animated pictures about his looks, his career, his childhood, being catholic, his sexual awakening and the order of Girls Aloud members he would want to have sex with, he takes questions from the audience, he and the audience sing his favourite song "Sweet Caroline" and ending with some unpleasant jokes to offend. Special features on the DVD include Carr's three appearances on Just For Laughs, some extra jokes in the show concerning famous people, including recently dead Michael Jackson, and Carr meeting and greeting members of the audience queueing for his autograph and photograph. Jimmy Carr was number 12 on 100 Greatest Stand-Ups. Very good!
