Jimmy Carr hosts another comedy masterclass, discussing his passion for all aspects of comedy and playing some of his favourite comedy clips.

In the fourth episode, Jimmy takes a look at how to tell jokes and he plays clips from the likes of Jack Dee on getting sunburnt; Bob Newhart on introducing tobacco to America; Sarah Millican on her weight issues; and Dara O'Briain on how he copes with pain. All these clips and more are supplemented by Jimmy's witty and anarchic take on the world of comedy.
