JFL review – Jimmy Carr ‘Terribly Funny 2.0’

Jimmy Carr

If you’re a stand-up comedian and want a long career in comedy, there is this one important maxim to keep in mind: stay fresh, stay current, keep on writing new material and never constantly rely on your old material, or else you will go stale rather quickly. This is one comedy dilemma that veteran British comedian Jimmy Carr never had to be concerned with. Over the past 20 years that I have seen Jimmy Carr perform at the festival, I never heard the same joke twice from him; and that’s because Jimmy steadfastly sticks to that maxim, and is a comedian that is truly dedicated to his craft 

And that was clearly evident with his latest solo show “Terribly Funny 2.0”, which played to a full house at Salle Wilfrid Pelletier of Place des Arts.

Jimmy Carr

Carr was certainly in his element, as he presented a structured show that started with a number of jokes on screen that tested the audience’s comedy aptitude. After the thunderous applause that greeted him, he continued with a stream rapid fire inappropriate jokes, that covered topics such as guns, violence, sex, sexual assault and his relationship with his girlfriend. And they were all presented with his pointed, sarcasm-laced delivery and punctuated with his signature laugh.

As well, Carr did a great job interacting with the audience, especially parents who brought their teenage kids to his show that was filled with risque material, and. 24-year-old male who was a “student” to his sexual education seminar for young men.

The third part dealt with his entry into the world of fatherhood, and poked holes in such institutions as the gender reveal party and the real role of dads (which he stated was for “babysitting the children until mom gets back”). Finally, the show was topped off with a selection of texts that were sent by the audience prior to the show. The texts were just as risque as Carr’s material and proved they could be just as funny without trying to outdo the comic. And his responses were a testament to his ad-lib skills. 

And I have to close this review with a touche reply (Jimmy Carr style) he gave to a heckler who just didn’t know when to shut up: “In a world where you can be anything, be quiet.”

Touche, Jimmy!
