Jimmy Carr: The Best of Ultimate Gold Greatest Hits

Canned laughter track for a standup?!?!
Classic Jimmy Carr jokes so no problem with the material, it's him giving some of his best material from the past.

The thing I can't get over is the canned laughter track they've put after every joke and the endless camera cuts to different angles.

Every now and then it cuts to one of a few stock wide or rear angles showing the audience (not laughing, incidentally, while the laughter track is at full pelt).

Just really bizarre for a comedy special, I think he must have delivered this act to an empty theatre to get the close ups and rotating camera angles they used, then cut in some from the same named tour and smashed it together with a laugh track as fake as his.

Normally a fan but had to turn this off.
