One of the funniest people in comedy
5 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

Ricky Gervais has a style of humor that is simply unique. While it doesn't always work, I was laughing a majority of the time. The people that are complaining about the things he talks about should realize you are not the target audience. The way I see it, if you offended by jokes about religion, bestiality, etc. then you really aren't a fan of comedy and should stick with Bill Cosby (still very funny though). No, Ricky's humor is for the warped people out there like me that see the humor in everyday life, no matter how sick or disgusting. Not everything in life is all cute and cuddly and neither is it in comedy. I also enjoyed the fact that he did what he wanted on stage and that it was up to you to decide whether it is funny or not. Humor is a very subjective thing, but if you liked him in the Office you will probably like this DVD.
