Because of the volatile nature of the entertainment industry, it's not uncommon for comedians to take second jobs or gigs to supplement their income.
Therefore, seeing a comedian working behind a bar or as a barista isn't all that common - but someone with the likes of Jimmy Carr's stature seems a bit odd. Or at least that's what CNN thinks. This image, posted out by Twitter account @youhadonejob, was taken from CNN discussing the recent issues surrounding Starbucks and racism in the workplace.

Naturally, when we saw this and clocked who it was, we went and did a cursory search and found that - yes, it is in fact Jimmy Carr and not some ridiculously well-groomed barista who just uncannily looks like Jimmy Carr. As it turns out, Carr did actually spend time behind the counter as a barista in Starbucks in 2012 for a photocall for a Stronger British Latte.
So the image is correct, except for the fact that Jimmy Carr likely no longer works for Starbucks and he probably never did. Honest mistake, right?
