TEARFUL Jimmy Carr spoke up on his tax avoidance shame, saying he thought he was “going to lose it all”

“You are no longer paid for what you do – you are paid for who you are

“I felt like I was going to lose everything. It felt like I might be canceled

“Maybe it’s that, maybe I can’t work or touring anymore. It was scary

“All you need to focus on is gratitude and say,” Oh what an amazing journey “”

Carr spoke to fellow comic bookmaker Micky Flanagan for his Sky One show Peeping Behind The Curtain when they visited Downstairs comedy venue on King’s Head in Crouch End, north London

He joked about the last time he played there: “I think it was one of the first clubs to pay me

“I think I have 60 pounds left somewhere – and I was paid in cash, so HMRC, you never saw that money””
