Netflix, IMHO, has done a great thing by sinking a load of money into developing standup specials – providing increased access to them for all, and removing the need to litter the landscape with single-watch DVD copies that haven’t made it off the shelves of charity shops around the land. In Jimmy Carr’s show you get an hour of textbook Jimmy Carr. He’s great at what he does, while at the same time doing merely exactly what he does – the problem with this is me, not Carr. I really hope to get more out of a standup show now than just a load of jokes, and Carr’s mainstreamin’ it all the way. The guy knows how to fit a routine together that’s for sure. Pity he’s not challenging anyone here – us or himself.
