Jimmy Carr's New Netflix Special Includes 'Career Ending' Jokes

Jimmy Carr is set to make his return to Netflix with a new Christmas special with jokes he refers to as 'career enders'.

His new show will be titled His Dark Material, which begins with a message that warns viewers on the 'terrible things' he is about to poke fun at.

In front of a live crowd in Southend-on-sea, the 49-year-old says: "Before we start, a quick trigger warning.

"This show contains jokes about terrible things.

"Terrible things that may have affected you and the people that you love."

He adds: "But these are just jokes. They’re not the terrible things.

"There’s a huge difference between doing a joke about a rape, and doing a rape. I f****** hope."

During the show, the comedian, who clearly doesn't give a flying fluff what people think, takes aim at an Anti-Vaxxer.

Carr asks the audience: "Let’s talk about the controversial thing, the vaccine.

"Who’s not going to take the vaccine because they think it might be dangerous? Raise your hands."

While most hands stay down, the odd one of two do pop up, prompting Carr to single one out before saying: "Now take that hand and slap yourself in the f***ing face. 

"Hear that? It was the voice of f***ing reason, wasn’t it?"

Carr went on: "The spread of Covid was directly linked to how dense the population is.

He then pointed towards the anti-vaxxer adding: "And some of the population are really quite f**king dense."

Ouch. 

But I think it's safe to assume Carr won't spend too much time worrying if he’s offended the audience member, as the comedian recently revealed that he’s fairly confident he’s already told a career-ending joke.

Speaking to LADbible back in September, he said: "It's a weird thought to think everything I've ever done is being watched today, by someone.

"It's all out there, people are clicking on it, and watching it, and enjoying it. And it's all perfectly acceptable, until one day, it isn't.

"But I suppose that's a reason to relax and sit back and enjoy, because you kind of go, 'Well, it's already out there. The line that ends my career, I've already said it, nothing I can do about it now. Relax'.

"And it's OK, because it was a joke, and jokes are these very special things where you take a very serious thing lightly, and you try and process it and get through it through humour."

Carr's Netflix special His Dark Material will be available to watch on December 25.
