Jimmy, with quite a confused look on his face, responds: "It’s Jimmy Carr. You’re very close."
The pair then shared a fist bump, with the cameraman repeatedly telling him that he looked "sick."
The awkward exchange was shared on TikTok, with the caption: "Man like Jimmy!!! My brother saw him on a train that a dedo got to be him [sic]"
It has since racked up 1.5 million views and nearly 95,000 likes, attracting nearly 1,000 comments.

Along with lots of folks questioning why he has his feet on the seat in front and noting how he's "sat like a baby with an iPad", some wondered whether it was a deliberate mistake from the man filming.
One person wrote: "How can you be a comedian and not recognise a great joke?"
A second agreed: "How can a comedian not see a joke when it slaps him across the face?"
However others were just enjoying the amusing content.
Another person said: "I’m genuinely so jealous would’ve sat down and had a whole conversation with him."
A fourth wrote: "He’s probably had half a million people say this to him.
"I’m sure he’s more than prepared on how to respond."
