Fans of comedian Ricky Gervais will find his stand-up comedy special worth watching
20 December 2008 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Ricky Gervais is the creator, writer, director, star and producer of the original BBC British Office and Extras TV series. He's featured in his own HBO stand-up comedy special called Ricky Gervais: Out of England.

I found him to be funny, even hilarious at times. Some of his jokes tend to go on too long when he should really move on to the next topic. I didn't laugh at everything he said. A lot of it was amusing though. I did laugh out loud several times. On stage Ricky Gervais presents himself in a self-effacing manner using a wide range of political, social and personal subjects in his routine. He comes across as being very sharp,intelligent and witty.

It's entertaining to watch him crack jokes in front of a crowd. The HBO stand-up comedy special Ricky Gervais: Out of England will appeal most to people who appreciate Ricky Gervais's dry British sense of humour. Fans of the talented comedian will likely find it worth watching.
