Ricky Gervais Live: Animals (2003)
Well Done Ricky
I have seen Ricky Gervais- Animals about 3 times now, and not once has it discouraged me to not watch it once again. I often see it re played on television, and i do not miss it.
As an office fan, coming from such a successful series in the UK would perhaps -even for the man who played David Brent- be difficult to follow up.
But, Ricky has not disappointed me. Perhaps, looking at other comments, this is due to my bad taste. But, i do not agree with this.
"Animals" really does contain some incredibly excellent humour. Tapping into lots of different subjects. A favourite line for me was (along the lines of) "Pandas, i mean, they've been shagging for what, like millions of years. It;s not like they're suddenly going to go. 'ah, no. Na, that's dirty. Er, no i don't wanna do that' "
I think he had structured comedy throughout the performance.
And i give him kudos for.. almost, risking bad reputations for his UN P.C repertoire. If it didn't have those sort of jokes anyway, it just wouldn't be Ricky Gervais, which is who we all expected to see? even if with a hint of David Brent throughout.
I thought it was an excellent show, and if other reviews are saying to people that if they did enjoy it it's a matter of bad taste- then i must have the worst.
