| A fun way to pass 60 minutes
My early memories of Jimmy Carr are that he was consistently offensive and crude, often uncomfortably so. While his latest stand up is both of these, I don't feel he is as edgy as he used to be. Don't get me wrong, he is much more offensive than your average stand-up comedian I just feel he has curbed it slightly.

He has a knack of dividing audiences; he is very much a love him or hate him kind of comedian. His approach to jokes is to appear very sensitive and then follow it up with a crude punchline. He is consistently good at this, making the build up to each joke tense, as you know he is about to produce something that will make you laugh but at the same time make you cringe!

Jimmy Carr has a history of performing to small audiences, despite being a big enough name to sell out arenas, he chooses to do smaller, intimate gigs to interact with the audience on a more personal level. Funny Business is no different; he often uses the audience, involving them in jokes and embarrassing them. He has a section where he shares jokes with the crowd which the audience have sent in themselves and also invites the crowd to openly heckle him, this is easily one of the funniest parts of the show.

If you like previous Jimmy Carr stand ups, you will enjoy this – there is no question about that. It's shorter than most gigs with a run time of around 60 minutes, I would have liked for it to be a little longer as it really did fly by. Some of his jokes don't quite hit the mark for me, but when they do, they do so really well. He's crude, edgy and offensive, if you're easily offended, don't bother watching this. Thankfully, I'm not, so for me it was a solid show – not his best, yet still comfortably above average.
