is totally unfunny. fact.
really dry and sarcastic and pissed off.
i loved him on his xfm saturday afternoon days about five years ago.. comedy gold...........
fair enough. but of late his ego has grown so big and the comedy hasn't got better to match it really. i use the term 'comedy' very loosely of course...
he used to be suede's manager.
pre debut album. true fact.
The re-run of Extras made me think otherwise. Hilarious.
overrated but great.
He's just.. funny in a dodgy way. I lot of people don't like him cause he's offensive but I think people who hate him for that reason need to take a good, deep look at themselves and get a bit of a life, really..
your ironic use of 'fact' but you're wrong
His stand up is immensely amusing
but the office was amazing and parts of extras are really funny
The Office - 9/10
Stand-up - 7/10
Extras - 8/10
please don't call your opinion a fact, ok? ok.
I would rate Extras higher than the Office. Partially because the writing and character development are, in my opinion, of vastly higher quality - but also partly because a good few of the gags are lifted and/or modified from Curb/Seinfeld, which I don't mind a bit.
thing has already been done by seinfeld.
just fuck of Gervais. Go on, please do one. Now.
Totally irrelevant but whilst 'on' Highbury Fields this afternoon I saw a 'regular' Chris Morris, Big Train comedian listening to his Ipod - I can't remember his name? He was also the racist in the lift in Partridge
I was annoyed he could afford a flat 'on' Highbury Fields but then he is quite funny and therefore deserves it, even though I bet, I BET, he was listening to Big Country on his Ipod
He is a brilliant writer and his characterisation is exceptionally strong. People judged Extras too quickly - aside from annoying over-use of the "cringe factor" the first series was fantastic. Watch episode 4 again and tell me it's not great drama.
I love Peep Show:(
ricky gervais > peep show
Though i do like mr mitchell, DREAMY
gervais less so.
