Ricky Gervais (The Office, Extras) is one of the most influential comedians of the 21st Century, and arguably the funniest period. He starred in, produced, and wrote two of the best sitcoms of all time and is now on his way to becoming a movie star.
It is great to see that his style of humor translates well into stand up too. And the best thing is that nothing is off limits with Gervais. If you thought Chris Rock's special was edgy last month this is just as politically incorrect. Ricky Gervais has no problem poking fun at AIDS, cancer patients, fat people all while drinking a beer throughout his performance. Too many quotes and too many memorable bits to recall, but this was just incredibly funny. When news broke a few weeks back that there might be a second Extras Christmas Special everyone got excited but it looks like Gervais will have no problem being hilarious post-Extras anyway.
