Jimmy Carr's Biography

Jimmy Carr is one of the most popular comedians in the UK, and DVDs of his live shows now sell more than 150,000 copies each. His first full-length show, Bare-Faced Ambition, was nominated for the Perrier in 2002; and he was named best stand-up at the Time Out Awards in 2003, and at the Laftas in 2004. At the same awards he was named ‘funniest man’ in 2005.

Jimmy won the Royal Television Society Award for best on-screen newcomer in 2003, and soon established himself one of the main faces of Channel 4, hosting game show Distraction, the first series of The Friday Night Project, three series of panel show 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and several specials such as The Big Fat End of Year Quiz and The Comedians’ Comedian.

In 2006 Jimmy was named “Best Live Stand up”, receiving the British Comedy Award for his tour “Gag Reflex”. In 2007, a poll on the Channel 4 website for 100 Greatest Stand Ups, Jimmy Carr was placed 12th.

Jimmy has also made headway in the US, performing four times on NBC’s TonightWith Jay Leno and three times on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien. He made a half-hour stand-up special for Comedy Central, and hosted two series of Distraction USA for the same network.
