Jimmy Carr discusses meeting 'really scrawny' Hells Angels accountant in Hamilton

Comedian Jimmy Carr has told US podcast host Joe Rogan about meeting an accountant for the Hell's Angels while at a gig in Hamilton. 

Carr was discussing the Hell's Angels with the host in a three-hour podcast that was recorded earlier this month. 

The 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown host spent over a month touring New Zealand in January this year and performed at Hamilton's Globox Arena Claudelands. 

"I met a guy in Hamilton in New Zealand where they have biker gangs... I met him on stage. I'm chatting to a guy in the front row. 

"The guy looked kind of scrawny. I said, 'What do you do?' And he said, 'Accounts'. 

"He's the accounts guy! But he was wearing the biker jacket, and he had the biker tats, but he was a really scrawny guy. 

"I just love the idea that someone joined a biker gang and gone, 'Right, what am I doing? Am I getting the crystal meth? Am I running the hookers? Am I transportation? Am I protection?' 

"'No, we need someone to do double-entry bookkeeping because this is getting out of hand'. There's no toilet paper, someone's doing the admin, someone's doing that for the Hells Angels." 

Carr also used the podcast to rave about Aotearoa, telling Rogan it was a "phenomenal place" with "the best audiences" and most "wonderful people". 

In October, comedian Sir Billy Connolly revealed he felt "vulnerable" during a confrontation with the "pretty aggressive" Mongrel Mob after they "surrounded him" and pulled him into a side street in Wellington in 2004.  

Connolly made the never-been-told-before admission in his new book, Rambling Man: My Life On The Road.   

The comedian, who is 80 and now suffers from Parkinson's Disease, confessed he hadn't told people about it at the time as he "wanted to get out of town in one piece."
