Could have been great only for Gervais...
3 June 2011 | by gooner316-1See all my reviews

Talking funny, is a unscripted get together of three of the funniest stand up comedians of all time & Ricky gervais.

They talk openly and fondly of bits they came up with in the past witch is a good insight into careers of these pros. the problem lies in when any of the three start to get into their story gervais butts in with a not so funny joke an finishes off with his trademark cackle...

Jerry seinfeld asks what bit (joke) they remember a audience laughing at early in their careers? Chris rock to gervais you should remember you wrote it last week!!!

So whereas this could have been great unfortunately turns out average.. Just because your company produced it does't mean you have to be in it!!
