Dublin’s Vicar Street, & the Leicester Comedy Festival, can also soon be
seen at the Glasgow Festival, Kilkenny Festival and the Galway Festival

his first live DVD (now available to buy).
‘The brightest British comic hope for a
long, long while…The most deliciously transgressive comic…He is not so
much pushing out the boundaries as sailing in uncharted waters…Superb.’
‘A masterclass in comedy…devastating,
tasteless two-liners that are bliss to listen to…Carr’s persona is
irresistible, and his wisecracks have you quivering with satisfaction’
‘Witty, surprising, different, and
clearly a new onscreen presenter for the future.’
Kirsty Young, Presenter, RTS Awards 2003.
