Jimmy Carr Can Joke About ANYTHING!

Jimmy Carr spares absolutely nothing and no one when it comes to his comedy special, Jimmy Carr: Naturally Born Killer. He starts off with a joke about transgenderism, moves on to pedophilia, and oftentimes mentions his girlfriend and cracks far too many jokes at her expense. But, it’s all funny. Carr hits the punchline over and over again, and it’s funny every single time.

Despite having an incredibly large audience in this special, Carr also manages to interact with the crowd and doesn’t hold back. He talks to his audience about porn, veganism, and everything in between, and also conducts a social experiment.

Jimmy Carr: Naturally Born Killer is just under an hour and doesn’t have a single dull moment. Joke after joke, Carr proves to his live audience and fans at home that there’s absolutely nothing too sensitive that can’t be joked about.

This special was almost like a challenge where Carr joked about everything under the sun, whilst possibly offending some people, which is why we mentioned earlier that this comedy special might not be for everyone, but we have to admit, it was funny as hell.

There are almost far too many comedy specials on Netflix, and while some manage to stand out, the others – not so much. Dark humor has become increasingly popular, especially since time and people are more careful and sensitive than ever, and Carr plays into that as well.
