Sexist git that he is. On Jonathon Ross last night, he walked past Barbara Windsor and said 'look at it, I'd give it one'.

BeHoHoHove Sun 21-Dec-14 10:36:29

No, really!.? I didn't like him anyway but that's just pathetic.

JeanSeberg Sun 21-Dec-14 10:38:29

I'd never tire of slapping his smug, self-satisfied face. There's not an ounce of humility to him.

He is not well liked in his circles I believe. BW face was a reflection of how unhappy she was last night. Interestingly, he was the one that came to her aid at the end when she looked very uncomfortable following the pie game.

He'll pass it off as a "joke". I thought his humour would be a tad more sophisticated than Roy Chubby Brown. At least with him, you get what it says on the tin. Jimmy Carr thinks he's classy, but really isn't at all...

Yanbu. Can't stand the bloke, he isn't funny and his laugh makes me want to rip my ears off my head.

I loathe his humour and he gives me the impression that if he was a bar of chocolate he'd eat himself.

Twat!

What he said was "Look at that, you would, wouldn't you". I think it's necessary to note that he didn't refer to Barbara Windsor as "it".

He looks like a mannequin with his over dyed hair and luminous white veneers.

Follyfoot Sun 21-Dec-14 10:56:45

Ah, Ok I thought he said look at it, so apologies. Though actually, 'that' as in an object rather than a person, is no better at all than 'it' ....

In a word....No.

BumWad Sun 21-Dec-14 10:59:52

Yea I can't stand him either!

Whooshtheyweregone Sun 21-Dec-14 11:00:07

He is vile and I thought he was incredibly disrespectful to Barbara Windsor who looked very uncomfortable a lot of the time.

BlueberryWafer Sun 21-Dec-14 11:06:56

His sense of humour is definitely an acquired taste. I quite like it! I must admit I have, on occasion, turned over the channel when cancer jokes have been spewed, however the majority of his stuff I find rather amusing.

Yddraigoldragon Sun 21-Dec-14 11:10:52

His laugh makes me so mad! Grrrrr... I recently realised though that it sounds exactly the same as when the dog next door barks.

HellKitty Sun 21-Dec-14 11:17:47

I'll second the post about him wanting to eat himself BUT a friend of mine absolutely loves him. Apparently JC spends ages backstage chatting with members of the audience and is a really nice bloke. Still can't my head around that though.

LaurieFairyCake Sun 21-Dec-14 11:21:40

When we went to 10 o clock live recording he was very friendly and nice to the audience, genuinely chatty and kind

BeHoHoHove Sun 21-Dec-14 11:23:00

Chatty and kind don't spring to mind, too many incidents like this one. I suppose there is no such thing as bad publicity.

I hate his face. He was the one that said that about children on variety buses all looking the same wasn't he? Massive prick he is.

Nancy66 Sun 21-Dec-14 11:25:47

didn't see the Ross show but I find him funny, including the Pistorius joke.

Sidge Sun 21-Dec-14 11:41:44

He's a bit of an arse and he looks like a Playmobil man.

carrielou2007 Sun 21-Dec-14 11:45:24

I love him, his humour, just love him I must be the only one (looks like it) until I realised I'm thinking of Alan Carr, not Jimmy Carr - can't stand him!!

limitedperiodonly Sun 21-Dec-14 11:48:05

I like Jimmy Carr. He's so quick-witted. YouTube clips of his put-downs to hecklers are devastating. I would not dare open my mouth at one of his gigs.

His comment a few years ago that Britain would have a hell of a Paralympic squad, what with all our disabled service personnel, was hysterically misinterpreted as an insult to Our Boys and Girls.

I thought it was a sarcastic acknowledgement of the fact that lots of fit young people have been injured in the service of their country and also a compliment to people that he has actually visited and entertained.

And the tax wheeze? If I could get away with avoiding tax, I'd do it too. Anyway, he didn't get away with it and I admire the way he owned his behaviour without a fake apology.

Many of his jokes are off-colour and I've sat stony-faced through some of his routines, but I'll still forgive him.

<off to check out the Pistorius joke>

GraysAnalogy Sun 21-Dec-14 11:49:57

I like him. And it's important to quote correctly when you're slamming someone down for said quote.

RobotRuthy Sun 21-Dec-14 11:50:44

His laugh is so robotic and false. I can't stand it! He's one of the few 'popular' comedians I wouldn't go to see if they paid me.
