Jimmy Carr spent a lot of his childhood in Berkshire, attending several schools before matriculating from the Royal Grammar School in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, then graduating from Gonville and Caius College Cambridge University, with a political science degree. Carr’s career begins at the age of 26, with loss of faith and criticism directed towards religion. As a result, Carr attended psychotherapy courses and in turn left with a qualification of a therapist. However, soon Carr switched career paths and turned his attention towards television instead. Carr began hosting a game show called “Distraction” that aired on Channel 4 from 2003 to 2004, which only lasted for two seasons, but was picked up by the Comedy Central channel, and Carr was again chosen as the host for two more seasons. Around the same time, Jimmy was co-hosting another game show with June Sarpong called “Your Face or Mine?”. Carr’s early hosting career was fairly successful, as from hosting many television shows, Carr was nominated for the prestigious Rose d’Or award. Over the years, Carr has been a host of “The Big Fat Quiz of the Year”, an annual British broadcast that has been on air since 2003. Carr has also worked on the comedy shows “A Comedy Roast”, “Alternative Election Night” with Lauren Laverne, and he is currently presenting the comedy and news show called “10 O’Clock Live”.

With the rise of his fame, Jimmy Carr began to be included in many more television series, which contributed towards his net worth. Some of the shows that Carr has made appearances in include “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, “A League of Their Own”, as well as “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”.These all contributed to his net worth.

However, Jimmy Carr is not only a television host and personality; Carr has been heard regularly  on several radio broadcasts, including working as an interviewer for “The Fred McAuley Show”, as well as “Loose Ends” which is featured on BBC Radio 4.
