Jimmy CarrJimmy Carr
Cambridge graduate Jimmy Carr hails from Buckinghamshire and seemed destined for a career in marketing until a comparatively early midlife-crisis saw him turn to comedy.

He gained a Perrier nomination in 2002 for his first solo show Bare Faced Ambition, and went on to win Time Out and RTS awards in 2003. He's also presented Your Face or Mine (with June Sarpong) and Distraction, for which he's been nominated for a prestigious Rose D'Or award.

An original and distinctive comedian, Carr has appeared on a variety of shows including Parkinson, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and QI. He's also been a guest presenter on Have I Got News For You.

He continues to be successful in his live work. In 2003 he performed at the Edinburgh Festival with his show Charm Offensive. He's planning a return to the Edinburgh Festival in 2004 and will also play The Bloomsbury Theatre in London where he will be filming his first DVD.
