Jimmy Carr – The Birth of a Comedy Legend
Posted on 26 August 2011 by Prime Performers
Jimmy Carr is one of the most successful comedians currently working on the British comedy circuit and has sold out theatres and arenas up and down the country. He is famed for his razor-sharp wit and often brutal two-liners which also makes him an excellent choice as a celebrity speaker.
Jimmy Carr has gone from strength to strength since his explosion onto the comedy scene in the early 2000s. His show Charm Offensive at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2003 sold out within an extraordinary two days and received glowing praise from both the public and critics.
Jimmy Carr definitely strikes a chord with the British public and in 2003 he was voted as one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy by the Observer and won the prestigious British Comedy Award in 2006 following his hilarious Gag Reflex tour. A poll on Channel 4 in 2007 ranked Carr as 12th in a list of The 100 Greatest Stand Ups. Carr is currently touring the country with Laughter Therapy, his latest comedy set and tour de force.
Carr has also appeared on various TV shows including Top Gear, Have I Got News For You, 10 O Clock Live and Never Mind The Buzzcocks. He is also the host of the hugely successful poll based panel show 8 Out Of Ten Cats that remains one of the most popular programs on British television.
Jimmy Carr has spent most of his working life in front of an audience and so is ideal for public speaking like conferences and or after dinner events. His jokes and wit will have everyone in stitches but his sense of humour is not for the faint hearted or easily offended!
