About Jimmy Carr

One of the most original and distinctive stars on television, radio, stage and now the big screen, Jimmy has enjoyed several hugely successful years; this year being no exception.

Jimmy's brand new tour show, Joke Technician will debut at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer before embarking on another epic tour. The DVD of the Repeat Offender show, entitled Jimmy Carr In Concert is due to be released in November.

Jimmy's latest show, Commercial Breakdown with Jimmy Carr, is currently being shown on BBC 1 whilst the sixth series of 8 Out of 10 Cats recently finished with a seventh series set for the Autumn. Other recent television appearances include appearing as a Celebrity Hijacker on this year's Big Brother, presenting The Big Fat Quiz of the Year, and returning as a guest on Have I Got News For You and The Graham Norton Show.

A household name in the UK, Jimmy is also a rising star in the US, where his profile continues to grow. The second series of his game show Distraction aired on Comedy Central last year and is currently being repeated. Jimmy has also appeared four times on NBC's flagship programme TheTonight Show with Jay Leno and five times on NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien and has performed four times at the Montreal 'Just for Laughs' Comedy Festival. Jimmy will return to the States shortly to record his second Comedy Central Special.

With conventional media conquered, Jimmy is also a pioneer of digital comedy, topping the album charts on iTunes and the MySpace comedy rankings, with over 18,000 fans online. He was the first major comedian to perform within the online world of Second Life, gaining a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the first comedian in cyberspace and the results can be seen as an extra on the new Comedian DVD.
