Gervais Cracks Us Up And Leaves Us Smiling
18 November 2008 | by (Somewhere Near Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

There's something...different about the listening experience when a comedian projects with a British accent; somehow, it makes the story, joke or discussion seem more humorous to me. I discovered this oddity when I first heard John Cleese, but I really noticed it with Eddy Izzard. Gervais gets this added bonus to his already hilarious routine and when it's added to his physical delivery, it seems to elevate what would ordinarily be a chuckle into fullblown laughter. If there is any downside, it is that Gervais, like most modern comics, liberally uses curse words. That's a shame, since while they don't bother me at all, they do annoy some, thereby limiting the number of viewers. And frankly he doesn't need them in his show to be hilarious. Give Ricky a shot; you won't regret it.
