David Brent's long lost cousin
4 September 2002 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Obsessive fans of 'The Office' should seek out the 'Dearth of a Salesman' episode and meet the monstrously cringe-inducing Gareth Cheeseman. Like David Brent, anyone who has worked in an office and attended sales conferences will recognise Coogan's salesman from hell. As with Alan Partridge, he is rude, sexist and bigoted... and absolutely hilarious. And, as always with Coogan, we are left with some excellently quotable catch phrases.

'Is that just for Junior, or can we all have some?'
