    Default Jimmy Carr

    I see he has annoyed some short people.

    I donít normally find him amusing, only find myself funny if Iím honest.

    But

    Is the world full of people who canít take a joke, or is what he said offensive?

    What he said was extremely offensive.

    Worse than anything that Scottish ďcomedianĒ has said? Or Ricky Gervais?

    Does it matter which of them might be worse ? Carr's comment was extremely offensive without needing comparison. Boyle and Gervais also say offensive things, but that doesn't dilute Carr's guilt.

    Not a particularly funny joke in this context and I haven't seen his show so don't know how it fits with the rest of his 'act'.

    Also don't think it's the most offensive joke in the world but is certainly good publicity for Warwick's charity.

    I've been to see Jimmy Carr live and that joke is one of his tamer ones...

    Just out of interest, as I was wondering this in relation to the Boris letterbox and bank robber comments. On HIGNFY a number of years ago, in their caption competition there was a picture of Prince Charles next to a lady in a black burkah with a white top. The caption that Paul Merton came up with was "Prince Charles surprised when pint of Guinness looks at him in a funny way."

    Would that be deemed offensive now?

    Yeah, it's on the tamer side, I have to agree. I've only seen him once - don't enjoy the one liner type of comedy TBH.

    And Emily Thornbury who said she wouldnít want her daughter or mum looked after by someone wearing a burka.
