Gervais is Hilarious
19 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ricky Gervais to me really has a great sense of humor for a Englishman. He consistently kept the laughs coming and coming in this stand-up special. I caught this on HBO last night and it had me laughing from start to finish. Gervais really does fall into fantastic everyday topics that can be made fun of. This stand-up special really proves to people that he can be a good writer and a good comic as well. I haven't seen much of his comedy, but now this makes me feel obligated to check it out because I was pleasantly surprised with this overall because the humor was sharp and quick. Gervais is really at the top of his game during this stage in his career.
