Britain's most acerbic and satirical comedian, Jimmy Carr, launches marks 10 successful years in comedy with the release of his fifth live stand-up DVD, Jimmy Carr Telling Jokes, available to own from 2nd November 2009, courtesy of 4DVD.
Featuring 90 minutes of fresh material that's just too rude for television, the new title will see Jimmy Carr at his best; creasing up the nation with relentless one liners and putting down brave hecklers with equal panache. Filmed earlier this year at the Bloomsbury Theatre during his latest tour, the DVD will also feature never-been-seen-before DVD extras including Jimmy's Twitter Diary, a Comedy Central Special and bonus stand up material.
Still holding the crown for the hardest working man in comedy after performing to 300,000 people this year during his Joke Technician tour, Jimmy will celebrate his millionth tour ticket sold this autumn. As well as marking the 10th anniversary since his first paid gig, 2009 is set to be his biggest year to date, as his new Rapier Wit tour continues to sell out and his total DVD sales are predicted to reach one million copies by Christmas.
Jimmy continues to entertain households across the UK each week as the host of the 8th series of 8 out of 10 Cats, one of the UK's longest running comedy series and the most successful comedy panel show in Channel 4 history.
He is a big hit in America, making more appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno than any other British comedian and has been a guest on Late Night with Conan O'Brien ten times. He also hosted two series of Distraction on Comedy Central in the last few years and two half hour Comedy Central Specials. His Canadian following also continues to grow and he received critical acclaim for this year's performance at the Montreal 'Just for Laughs' Comedy Festival.
