In this lens I'm going to tell you as much as I can about the British Comedian Jimmy Carr and how he came to be the funniest guy that I have ever seen and heard. Jimmy Carr is the name on everyone in Britains lips for becomming Britains number one comedian for this year 2010...I know that my money is on Jimmy Carr for taking that title as is that of most of my friends and family...yep, we are all Jimmy Carr fans and we are not alone!

The Reasons Why I Love British Comedian Jimmy Carr

Jimmy Carr is My favourite comedian in the world...he may well become your best British comedian.

British comedian Jimmy Carr's humour is hilarious and has me "cracking-up" and laughing out loud. I doubt that the way Jimmy Carr can make me cry with laughter is to everybody's tastes but for me, my friends and my family Jimmy is the funniest guy on British stage and television at the moment. The humour of this guy is a lot like that of my own wherein he is deadpan, witty and satirical, Jimmy Carr tells it how it really is.

Jimmy Carr doesn't tell jokes to raise laughs from his captive audience...what Jimmy does to make them laugh is very clever indeed...he chooses something from everyday life that most people have come across, either it is something embarrasing which a lot of people do, something naughty or something such as a law that a lot of people choose to ignore, whatever his topic, you can rest-assured that it is real and true to his audience and he gets his laughs on that level without the need for ever having to crack a joke as such.

Without a doubt, Jimmy Carr is great value for money as he holds the interest of his audience with his very well thought out opening line. Once you hear his opening line he has you hooked as the opening line he punches you with has something to do with every single member of the audience, something which every single audience member has either done, said, still does or still says, something which is hilariously funny that everyone straight away relates to on a personal level...after that first line he has you, there's not one member of his audience that does not associate with Jimmy Carr's opening line.

It is freakily enthralling for his audience to hear embarassing, secret, even intimate things which seem to be about them and only them, making them wonder how on earth he could know such things. Jimmy Carr knows his audience so well that it takes a while for them to realise that he is referring to the majority rather than the individual...untill his next seemingly knowing revelation of course!

A "people watcher" and a "listener", Jimmy Carr takes notice of what is going on around him, who is saying what about this and who is saying what about that. He has great attention for detail and describes things he talks about "down to a tee" including peoples mannerisms, speech, accents, clothes and habits. He could well be a psychologist because he analyses every little point and misses nothing out whatsoever.

Paying great attention to detail, Jimmy Carr is not afraid to offend anyone because he knows that whatever the topic he chooses to talk about relates in some way to almost every member of his audience's own lives. Often saying things which some people may find extremely embarassing, Jimmy Carr has members of his audience wriggling in their seats with his semmingly knowledgeable comments about something which they themselves often do.

Jimmy Carr takes every member of his audience out of their usual safety zones and puts them right into the thick of things, every single audience member feels it, he leaves no-one out nor any stone unturned.

So there you have it, my own personal reasons for what it is about British comedian Jimmy Carr that makes him way above the rest of the comedians I have ever seen. I think that people should listen out for him because he is going to get really huge World-wide and heard it here first.

        I love Jimmy Carr, he's definitely one of my favourite comedians even though he seems to be everywhere on British TV so you can barely find a stand-up comedy or panel show program without him on it.

        I enjoyed this lens very much. On a technical level, though, I'm going to hold off on rating it until you've had a chance to come back and work it over a bit. You've made an excellent start, and I commend you on the subject matter. I think this is going to become a 5 star lens very soon.
