Jimmy Carr was one of my top Just for Laughs picks last year. And even though I gave the chap a bit of hard time over recycling sperm gags
, Jimmy Carr is still one of my top Just for Laughs picks. His ability to go from rehearsed brilliance to off-the-cuff interplay to the point of heckling audience members into heckling him
sets the U.K. television star in a unique, multi-talented league. The eloquent, dirty Cambridge grad will be taking the lead at the Britcom Gala, serving as host and, given the chance, spewer of all things revolting and completely, utterly unacceptable.
June 5 UPDATE: Carr will be joined by none other than Danny Bhoy, who was brilliant at the 2011 Just for Laughs edition.
The Britcom Gala is held not once, but twice on July 26, 2012 at Place des Arts' Théâtre Maisonneuve. Admission $51.06 plus service charge. Buy tickets.
