Quotes

Ricky Gervais: I think Schindler's List is a fantastic film. And I didn't watch it at the cinema actually. I got it out on video, about a year later - by mistake - 'cause I'd never heard of it and I was in Blockbuster sort of late one night. I was a bit drunk, and I thought it was a porn film. No, 'cause I saw 18 certificate, top shelf. I thought, oh, black and white - dodgy home movie, German sounding - they're the best, and what swung it was that quote on the back from Barry Norman: "Have a box of Kleenex ...

Another hit for Gervais
4 January 2005 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

After massive success with the hit TV show 'The Office', Ricky Gervais decided to turn his hand to stand-up comedy, again to massive success with the hilarious show 'Animals'. Now, Ricky is back! This time tackling the world of politics, and once again; to great success. Although sometimes Ricky goes off the boil a little bit, the show is almost constantly hilarious, and some of Ricky's jokes will no doubt generate belly laughs; unless you're easily offended. Threads involving Humpty Dumpty, the drought in Africa and the holocaust (I told you it's not for everyone!) are particular highlights. Gervais is great because he goes that extra mile that most comedians wouldn't dare tread on. From the moment it starts, with a hilarious sequence involving Ricky and an Egyptian gay man in a wheel chair (he's not gay really), you know you're going to be in for a stand up show that is likely to offend, and offend it does. But when taken in good humour, Gervais' humour is witty and intelligent and I recommend this show to anyone that enjoys this style of comedy. Oh...and just so you know, he doesn't do the dance.
