Alan Carr was born 14 June 1976 and is an English stand-up comedian and media personality, known for his deliberately camp demeanour and self-deprecating humour.
Carr was born in Weymouth, Dorset, and grew up in Northampton where he went to Weston Favell School. His father is former Northampton Town F.C. manager Graham Carr.
Carr moved to Manchester after a string of dead-end jobs in his hometown of Northampton seeking a better life and with aspirations of becoming a comedian. He moved into a house full of activity in Chorlton-cum-Hardy after which he moved to Stretford; which he cites as an inspiration for his comedic work. Carr gained a degree in BA (Hons) Drama and Theatre Studies, graduating with a 2:1 from Middlesex University.
Despite being openly gay and famously camp, he doesn't consider his sexuality to be a focal part of his act, once saying that "I just think gay people need to get over themselves. Just because you're gay and on the telly doesn't mean you're a role model. I'm just a comedian. That's all I am. ... What am I meant to do? Do I go down the Julian Clary route and talk about fisting and poppers? I don't talk about being gay and I think what better equality for gays than that?".
On 21 September 2006, Carr and entertainer Lionel Blair helped save a man who was about to fall from a pier in Blackpool. The man was holding on by his fingertips, but the two men managed to pull him to safety.
