Jimmy Carr Live

Jimmy Carr was in the news during the week for cracking a gag about Oscar Pistorius. It apparently offended some of the crowd at the awards event he was at. Modern media means that everyone gets the chance to hear the gag now though - not just the few hundred in the room, so the chance for offence to be taken is magnified. Everyone has a different level, if your's is higher, you'll enjoy Jimmy Carr: Making People Laugh. More4, 10:45pm.

New today: Russell Brand is on The Jonathan Ross Show; and there's QI XL. Repeats include Dad's Army. Schedule
