Taxes? Don’t re­light my ire

Jimmy Carr on why Gary Bar­low got an easier ride on avoid­ance

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

Some called for Gary to lose OBE – I’ve still got my job!” Jimmy added: “It was an in­ter­est­ing time that. You re­ally find out who your friends are. I re­mem­ber you (John Bishop) tweet­ing on the day some­thing very sup­port­ive. “You re­mem­ber – the peo­ple who didn’t call, the peo­ple who did. I made a Jimmy re­sponds to tax row on Twit­ter mis­take, clearly, and I paid it all.” In the can­did TV in­ter­view which airs next week, Jimmy also told how he feels the celebrity world is “a dan­ger­ous game”.

He added: “I don’t feel like I’m a celebrity, I’m a co­me­dian. That world doesn’t in­ter­est me. Hello! com­ing in to do pho­tos of your kitchen – it’s not hap­pen­ing.”

And Jimmy re­vealed how he lost his

Catholic faith 18 months be­fore the death of his mum Nora Mary in 2001.

He said: “If she gave me the gift of laugh­ter and what I do with my life, then that’s enough. That will have to do, I don’t think any­one is look­ing down.”
