Award-winning actor/comedian Ricky Gervais' first-ever HBO stand-up special features his unique takes on such disparate issues as fund-raising, autism, fame, nursery rhymes, Nazis, moronic friends, obesity and more.
Jon Death....that sums you up as far as your humour is concerned. If you don't know funny my friend (which you clearly don't), why bother writing a review. Please ignore this void.
Anyway.....the show is dangerously funny to the point where i was sure i was going to soil myself or cough up a lung!! Its filmed in a studio setting which is then animated over the top (excellently i might add) with sketches of the topics punctuating the set up. The discussions between the three consists of the thoughts and opinions on various topics by Ricky, Stephen and the irresistibly stupid Karl Pilkington. As a concept it doesn't seem that this would work anywhere nearly as well as it does and just underlines the exceptional and original talent of Ricky for coming up with something so new and fresh. This man is truly a history making talent and deserves the monocle of true genius in my book. You only have to look at the past work of this chubby funster to see that this man only operates in the entertaining and unique.
I cannot recommend this show more. Its funny funny funny. Anybody who thinks otherwise really needs to take a long hard look at themselves in the mirror and go back to watching there 'Friends' box set and leave the real comedy to the people that appreciate it.
