AS the king of the one-liners, Jimmy Carr really knows how to put on a show while insulting his audience at the same time.
He is a true entertainer and had visitors to the Buxton Opera House in stitches with his unique style and even more unique laugh.
In fact, all he has to do is laugh to have the audience giggling. After a night watching Carr do stand-up I can see why it was so difficult to get the tickets in the first place.
He was absolutely hysterical and I actually came away with mascara down my face and a sore side from laughing so much.
I think he managed to insult half the audience, including a man who brought his mother along and a woman who said she was a Christian – and the more he got heckled, the funnier he got.
The part where he showed some of his pictures and shared some of the audience's messages was brilliant and proved he can do off-the-cuff comedy.
He was crude, rude, controversial and insulting – what more could you really want from Carr? It would have been a disappointing night otherwise.
After the show he stayed behind and met with the audience, which was a really nice touch. I have to say, as one of the people who got to meet him, he was a really nice man. Not words I would expect to put in the same sentence – Jimmy Carr and nice.
If you get the chance to see him and are not easily offended (or prudish for that matter), it is definitely worth it.
Buxton Opera House is a beautiful venue, but a little air conditioning would not go amiss.
