Jimmy Carr admits he wouldn't be able to perform to the best of his ability on '10 O'Clock Live' if he was hungover, so he tries not to drink on work nights
Jimmy Carr could never do a show if he was hungover.
The '10 O'Clock Live' comedian admits to enjoying the odd tipple, but says he would never go out on a huge drinking session if he knew he had work the next day as he wouldn't be on top form.
He said: "I don't have any vices really. It's early on in my career - there's time for all that drugs and rehab. I do like proper old lady drinks though, like sherry and mint Baileys. I have no shame!
"But I couldn't do a show while hungover - the whole point of what I do is that you're sharp and quick-witted."
As well as making sure he eats and drinks in moderation, Jimmy also revealed he is a grooming addict, but has vowed to stop self-tanning.
He said: "I moisturise! I have no problem with preening. I have to wear make-up every day for work so I can't pretend to be one of the lads. I'm not one of the lads, I'm a pretty little doll.
"I tried a spray tan years ago - I'd been ill and was looking drawn. I won't do it again though, the bedsheets looked awful, like someone had a dirty protest. And it smelled horrendous!"
