Ricky Gervais is the GOD of comedy! This particular stand up is one of the best I've seen in a long time. He is absolutely irreverent, politically incorrect and says things everyone thinks but obviously don't have the guts to say out loud.

Whats best about Gervais' style is the little under the breath one-liners that pop in from time to time.

IMO, the one of the funniest moments is when he walks casually to the lectern, picks up his beer while saying "I could solve the world's problems....(takes a swig from the beer)... If I cared". FANTASTIC!

OK, so not everyone will like the Anne Frank jokes, but his comic genius is simply undeniable. Fact.
