brilliant
13 April 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Good comedy makes you laugh. Great comedy makes you cry. Brilliantly done once again, Mr Gervais. Ricky has always been more than a funny man; he's been an observer of funny, a discoverer of funny, a philosopher of funny. Beneath all the ridiculous and the offensive, there has always been a very kind soul and Ricky's work has matured over time from the wacky Brent dance into the tears of a not clever, not handsome, but kind young man. Ricky's work covers the entire emotional spectrum and he gets each color spot on. This unexpectedly touching work is a natural progression of his brilliant career, a fitting link in a chain of works that he can one day look back on and be proud of. Thanks for sharing yourself with the world, Ricky. You should be the president of the world.
