Jimmy Carr's future as a satirist...

... is probably over.  Channel 4 carries the story and reaction.  Top marks to Frankie Boyle for his comment, "It's ok to avoid tax providing every time you do a joke about a town being shit you add "Partly down to me I'm afraid" under your breath"


  1. Well, to be honest that comes as quite a relief, never having found Carr amusing. One of the staggering things about this affair is the manner in which he has been completely unrepentant.

  2. Was Jimmy Carr ever a satirist in the first place? He tells topical gags, which is not necessarily the same thing.

  3. That's a fair point Simon - but he also presents C4's 'Ten o'clock show' which is meant to be satirical - I wonder if they'll renew his contract for that?
