Ricky before the office

i remember it was repeated 18 months or so ago and so i watched it

it was one of the funniest things ive ever seen

the interviews with celebrities were priceless and he made no bones about telling them they werent first choice and degraded them on a regular basis

there were little sketches he did with steve merchant before and after the breaks that were on a par with chris morris for dark humour (one involved ricky masturbating while steve hid in a cupboard and watched!)

the way he treated tony green (darts commentator) was funny

on one scene tony dressed in fishnet stockings while they did a game show called "ricky gervais's play your cards right" in the scene ricky turned over a playing card to reveal a homosexual pornographic image. ricky went mad but tony said "you like looking at them when its just me and you backstage"

its safe to say there was a whiff of homosexuality across the entire series

priceless
