James Anthony Patrick Carr is an English comedian, known for his deadpan, satirical, and often dark humour.

Carr was born in Isleworth, London, England to Irish parents who were originally from Limerick. They then moved to Slough where Carr was educated. He holds dual citizenship with Ireland and the United Kingdom. He was educated at Burnham Grammar School in south Buckinghamshire and later at the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe where he achieved 4 A grades at A-level, before going on to receive a 2:1 in Social and Political Sciences from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. After leaving Cambridge, Carr was hired by the oil company Shell as a marketing executive, a job which he described as "technically the easiest job on the planet". Less than two years afterwards, he took redundancy and joined JC Productions Ltd in order to begin a career in stand-up comedy. Whilst working at JC Productions with his father, Carr made his first film at Pinewood starring Craig Charles and Roy Dotrice. The film, The Colour of Funny, was a flop and this failure motivated him to try his hand at comic writing and stand-up. Carr eventually gained recognition at the Royal Variety Performance, and was chosen by Channel 4 to host game shows such as Distraction and Your Face or Mine? In 2004 he released his first stand up DVD titled simply Jimmy Carr Live, and the following year his second was released, Jimmy Carr Stand Up. A third DVD Jimmy Carr - Comedian was released late 2007. He currently presents 8 Out of 10 Cats on Channel 4. He was one of the hijackers on Big Brother Celebrity Hijack, the latest edition of the franchise.
