On his new DVD Being Funny, Carr stretches himself with an attempt at some regional accents, before giving the audience a masterclass in the art. To mark the release of the disc, Jimmy's people have stuck together a new animation to illustrate the lesson.
Jimmy Carr: Being Funny is available on DVD now.

Carr recently told Digital Spy that he is trying to expand his comedic style beyond pure joke-telling.
"I think the next thing for me will be bringing a bit more performance into it," he said. "I look at Lee Evans and Michael McIntyre and Peter Kay and the acting they do on stage.
"Jack Dee's a big influence on that for me. He's known as being quite deadpan, but if you look at his stand-up he does all of the voices and the acting and he really makes it come alive."
