Jimmy Carr: Being Funny
1 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was the seventh stand up tour and DVD release for the fantastically funny, witty and debonair comedian Jimmy Carr, who presents once again his cool dress code, and his brilliant observational and even ruder jokes covering various subjects. Jokes in the show include those about hotels, sex, schools and teachers, dating and relationships, and trying to improve his regional accents in comedy, using key phrases, including with Scouse, Belfast, Geordie, Welsh, Manchester, Scottish, West Country, Birmingham, Essex, Yorkshire, Australian and Jamaican. There are more jokes with animated pictures for visualisation, based on Ideas, Thoughts, Social, Health, Religion, Sport, Technology, Pornography, Sex (phrase "adult supervision"), Relationships (phrases "partner" and "housewife", and his favourite joke with the word "custardy"). After asking from audience members if they have an interesting job or claim to fame, he interviews a Funeral Director named John, and on the screen behind him the audience are part of a secret to freak him out when Jimmy makes up a joke. Other jokes in the show include about audience members tea-bagging, the 69, how rude jokes go, his impression of a lesbian breakup, and he has an audience member having to turn off their phone. There is a bit where he asks for Heckling, which he loves, and you have audience members shout about not being able to see Peter Kay, hating his Walkers Jimmy Con Carne flavour, wanting comedy, and being a posh prick, and two of the audience members he uses his paper fortune teller to give him a good rude insult. The encore, just like the last one, sees if he can offend the audience to the point where they don't laugh, and he tells a really vulgar Australian joke that sticks with you after, so all in all, a terrific show. Jimmy Carr was number 12 on 100 Greatest Stand-Ups. Very good!
