Jimmy Carr

Comedian, Writer & Entertainer

Jimmy Carr is an award-winning comedian, writer and television host, famous for his dark humour and one-line jokes. You'll think of him as either a politically incorrect equal opportunities offender or a fake-toothed donkey-laugh plastic-haired comedy mannequin. Either way he was scientifically proven to be the funniest comedian in the UK.

Publican Dinner and Awards

Jimmy Carr was brilliant! He was great and very easy to deal with. He is very funny but knows where to draw the line. There was laughter throughout the evening.
