Excellent
19 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this comedy special from Ricky Gervais. He's a truly funny man, and certainly one of the best in England right now.

He seemed pretty at ease with himself during the performance, and as with other such stand up routines I've seen him do, he sipped a beer (or at least something from a Foster's can throughout the show.

His material was very funny in a lot of parts, but some of the material will be highly offensive to some, especially some of the sexual references.

My only real criticism is that one part of his act was clearly lifted out of his recent HBO TV show, and another part I'd seen somewhere else before. Somehow that takes the edge off it a little.

All in all though, if you like fairly British humor, and are not easily offended, this is something you should enjoy.
