Summary

Joining us at Audible Studios is British Irish stand-up comedian and television presenter Jimmy Carr.

Carr, best known for his dark one-liners and signature laugh, didn't begin life as a comedian. After studying social science and political science at Cambridge, he began working for fuel company Shell. While there, he began reading self-help books and, feeling miserable, decided to make a change - he gave up his job and learned how to write jokes, got his first gig as a stand-up and changed his life! He has been hosting comedy shows ever since, such as 8 Out of 10 Cats and its Countdown counterpart and The Big Fat Quiz of the Year. He also regularly appears on panel shows such as QI and A League of Their Own.

Carr has now put his life into words in Before & Laughter, part self-help book and part memoir. We'll be chatting to him about why we’re verbs not nouns, how his 2012 tax scandal still affects him and now that he’s a dad if his jokes have become even darker.

Listen to Before & Laughter here.
