Plot Twist

From 8 Out of 10 Cats, to world tours and comedy roasts – Jimmy Carr's brutal sense of humour (and that unique laugh) has earned him a position in the very top tier of the industry. Talking to Tom and Fran on the release of his new book Before & Laughter (an autobiography meets self-help guide to life) Jimmy reveals the plot twists from a 30 year career which started, perhaps surprisingly, as an oil trader. Behind the jokes, Jimmy shares insight into his method and what keeps his demons at bay. Plus moving words on his friend Sean Lock. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Changes with Annie Macmanus

When Jimmy Carr was 25 years old, his life looked very different. He was a marketing exec at an oil company, a practicing Catholic, a virgin. And he was sad. In order to change that. He asked himself one question: "What do I want?" He soon discovered that knowing the answer to that question was half the battle. In this conversation, you'll hear exactly how Jimmy Carr turned a quarter-life crisis into an astonishingly successful career in comedy – and why he'd recommend a similar degree of upheaval to anyone stuck in a rut.You can purchase Jimmy Carr's new book, Before & Laughter, here: https://www.quercusbooks.co.uk/titles/jimmy-carr/before-laughter/9781529413076/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
