A great video from the East Anglian Daily Times at this link. Its video journalist’s equipment just wasn’t big enough for Jimmy Carr’s approval last week. Photographers tried to grab shots of the comedian outside the court hearing in Suffolk on May 13 that saw Jimmy Carr’s speeding trial adjourned.
Carr told the VJ: “It’s not a proper camera. You’re not a proper journalist: look at that! That’s from home.”
“Do you want to grab a shot and then leave it?”
“Can I get you both together?”
Carr, walking off:
“No, you definitely can’t now!”
Lawyer, to camera:
“No, we can’t make any comment at all at the moment. The case has been adjourned so it would be inappropriate to make any comment, ok.”
Carr, walking past cameras:
“(…)Thanks for coming, I feel very important. Very nice of you.
“If you’ve got shots… ‘cos I’m going to drive away – I don’t want people taking shots when I’m driving. It’s very dangerous.
“It’s not a proper camera. You’re not a proper journalist: look at that! That’s from home.”
Muffled muttering off-camera, not clear who says it:
“… Mickey Mouse camera”
