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 Stuff. A Pleasure to watch.
5 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

By far the funniest man i've seen. After watching Animals, i thought it would be difficult to do better, and he would if Politics was longer. The holocaust joke was absolutely hilarious. Its about time someone used subjects that are original and funny. If someone cant see the funny side of that, then there's just no hope. The Stephen Hawking skit had me in stitches, crying with laughter. "From Kent and speaks with an American accent". And the impresson tops it off to perfection.

Would recommend and have recommended it to anyone, who isn't afraid of actually laughing at something rather than laughing at what everyone else is laughing at.
