yes he is.
there's so much heart in his sitcoms and what he does that gets completely overlooked
I assume this post travelled in time from when he was on the 11 o'clock show...
was watching the extras extras yesterday with nigel. incredible.
Most successful British sitcom of all time, Baftas and Emmys coming out of his arse, most downloaded podcast ever, huge stand-up shows that sell out instantly, hollywood career in film....poor fella, won't someone recognise his talent?
...might be to do with his personality. He comes across as very arrogant in his interviews and stand-up, and being British, we don't like that kind of arrogance. In the Karl Pilkington podcasts, he comes across as a generally nice guy and clever chap, but he really needs to tone down the over-exaggerated arrogant Gervais to become loved by the General British Public.
I'm a big fan, but I don't think he's underrated. How could he be more loved by the public...?
Not indie enough.
The only thing he's done that I didn't like was that Extras 2 part special that involved that horribly soppy song that's on NSPCC adverts.
given his comedy show,the fact that it's been remade in the US, various books, stand up, that interview he did on the Daily Show, his full length hollywood films... NO ONE HAS RECOGNISED HIS GENIUS
There is absolutely no mention of Steven Merchant anywhere near this thread. That I find odd..
In conclusion, stevie merchant and i like food.
If you keep acting like this, you wont get you hands on my lovely chicken
