Quotes

Ricky Gervais: [in the summer drought of 1976 in Reading, where Gervais grew up] There was a government advert at the time that said, "Save water: have a bath with a friend." Which I did. I say "a friend"; he was more a friend of my Granddad's. Ten quid's a lot to a kid in Reading. We used to call him "Granddad Charlie", actually. He wasn't our Granddad, he was just an old bloke who used to live across the road from us and used to always come round to play with us whenever he saw our parents go out.

Great
25 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ricky Gervias once again has done a very very funny live stand up show, sure it has a lot of "sick" jokes, well their not really sick at all its just funny. But if your ignorant and easily offended then stay away,but its funny as hell, better than Animals, one of the best things is on Extras, an interview with Karl Pilkington, he seems to be a very funny yet boring man, his voice was slow and dull but he got wound up easily,. As other reviews state he talked about Hitler, gays, Chinese people etc. he doesn't "mock" them he puts it into a funny context which works well.

Overall 7.5 / 10 Great
