Jimmy Carr - Making People Laugh
I like Jimmy Carr a lot. His Comedy Central specials have always been solid and his appearances on the UK version of Top Gear are some of the best TV I've seen since Norm MacDonald's reign of terror on Conan's Tonight Show run. That said, I really didn't figure on almost two hours of Carr being an engaging proposition. Boy was I wrong. Carr kills it for the duration. Taped in front of a rabid Glasgow audience, he alternately skewers the crowd and drops some new material that the average stateside comedian would shank Seinfeld in the neck for. I'm not sure when/if this will ever make it stateside, but Making People Laugh is some must-see comedy.
