But what about his personal life? Let’s take a look at Jimmy Carr, from how old he is to whether he’s in a relationship:

How old is Jimmy Carr?

Carr is 50 years old. He was born on September 15, 1972, in Hounslow, London, in the UK.

His star sign is Virgo.

Is Jimmy Carr married?

Carr is in a relationship with Canadian-born Karoline Copping. She’s a commissioning editor for Channel 5 and the pair are believed to have met during a TV interview in 2001.

The couple are not married – and Carr has admitted that when he first met Copping he didn’t make a good first impression.

But after their first encounter, she ended up attending one of his gigs and the rest is history.

How many children does Jimmy Carr have?

The successful comedian shares a son with his partner Copping. The couple is believed to have secretly welcomed their child in 2019.

Carr told the Radio Times that his son had been named Rockefeller – inspired by the American billionaire business magnate John D. Rockefeller.

Fans were left surprised when The Big Fat Quiz of the Year presenter included material about fatherhood in his 2021 stand-up at the O2 Academy in Brixton.

Carr reportedly joked: “I had to tell my little boy he’s adopted.

“I mean, he isn’t, but the look on his face. I said, ‘No, no, no, you were adopted, the new family is picking you up tomorrow’.”

He went on to add ‘we’re having a gender reveal party for our kid but we’re going to wait until he’s 21 just to be sure’.

How much is Jimmy Carr worth?

Carr’s reported net worth amounts to £25 million.

He and Copping live in the posh London area Primrose Hill – their mansion is reportedly worth around £8.5 million.

Thanks to Carr’s star-studded journey in stand-up comedy, his presence on Netflix with comedic specials, and his frequent hosting engagements on television, it’s hardly surprising that he boasts such an impressive net worth.
