I have never heard this Carr fellow, but I can tell you Jay is NOT funny. He is also not nearly as smart as he thinks he is. He is boring, pompous, arrogant and stuck up. He is also a supporter of legalizing drugs which is something that all intelligent people know would destroy this country. So In other words, he sucks.
I would have to agree that Severin is mostly boring, more than a little arrogant and too much into sex and drugs. Aside from having a good command of the language, he's not often funny, either.
That is one of the least intelligent statements I have ever read on FR, for a number of reasons.
