One of the most original and distinctive stars on television, Jimmy Carr is the host of Channel 4's prime time panel show 8 out of 10 Cats. He also has many other successful shows behind him, including The Friday Night Project, two series of Distraction and Your Face or Mine and many appearances on shows such as Parkinson, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Top Gear and The Royal Variety Show.

In the corporate market, Jimmy is a popular either as an after dinner speaker or awards host. Recent clients have included Haymarket, Abbey National and Centaur Publishing.

Most recently Jimmy has broken into US TV with appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O'Brien and his own 12 part series of Distraction on the US cable network Comedy Central. At the moment Jimmy can be heard on 104.9 XFM every Sunday morning where he presents the breakfast show.

As would be expected of a comedian with a soaring international profile, Jimmy has performed at all the international comedy festivals, and was one of very few top British comedians to be selected to appear at the world's two top Comedy Festivals; in Montreal.

A truly versatile presenter, Jimmy is engaging, amusing and incredibly funny making him a firm favourite at events across the country.

'I am pleased to report that we have received a great deal of positive feedback from guests at the Awards, congratulating us for what was indeed a spectacular all-round success, and especially for the calibre of presenter! One of our sponsors commented "Jimmy Carr was the best presenter I have ever seen"!'
Jenny Lowe, Centaur Events on Jimmy Carr who hosted their Mortgage Strategy Awards

'The brightest British comic hope for a long, long while...The most deliciously transgressive comic...He is not so much pushing out the boundaries as sailing in uncharted waters...Superb.' Irish Times

'A masterclass in comedy...devastating, tasteless two-liners that are bliss to listen to...Carr's persona is irresistible, and his wisecracks have you quivering with satisfaction' Guardian
