Hughley and Katherine Ryan, as well as journalist Mona Chalabi. Guest comedians join the group every episode as they try to offer a solution to an important world issue. Jimmy Carr: The Best of Ultimate Gold Greatest Hits is his second Netflix special after  2016’s Jimmy Carr: Funny Business.

    In the U.K., Carr also hosts 8 Out of 10 Cats, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and also The Big Fat Quiz of the Year.

    While Carr has made a name for himself as a TV host, he works just as hard as a stand-up. He’s toured as a stand-up since 2003 when he premiered his show Charm Offensive to sold-out crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He also wrote three books including The Naked Jape: Uncovering the Hidden World of Jokes a book on the history of making jokes.

    Carr announced the new special via social media. Watch his announcement below.
