The special promises to showcase a collection of Carr’s best jokes and will feature the type of raunchy jokes and deadpan one-liners that audiences know and love from the British comedian. The special was filmed at The Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Ireland.
Jimmy Carr pulls double duties at Netflix
Carr currently hosts Netflix’s The Fix, which premiered last year. In The Fix, he is joined by comedians D. L. 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.
