This is a hero of comedy?
14 July 2008 | by graham_525See all my reviews

I think that the fact a programme was made hailing Ricky Gervais as a hero of comedy is indicative of the poor state of British comedy in general. Don't get me wrong, I liked the office but beyond that I don't see what people are talking about. I felt like I had slipped into a parallel universe when I was watching this show. Clips of Gervais doing third rate stand up comedy were inter cut with comedy heavy weights like Billy Connelly and Chris Rock talking about amazing he is. Billy Connelly needs to get out and see more comedy if he thinks Gervais was good. He seemed to think it was incredibly clever that Gervais started his act by pretending to answer questions that the audience weren't asking him. That's a bog standard comedy device. I've seen guys trying out stand up in comedy clubs doing five minute slots come up with better material than Gervais. Sorry, I don't get it. It's like the whole world has conspired to pretend that this guy is funny. Like I said, the office was good, but I think that Gervais in his heart of hearts is David Brent. It wasn't creative it was just him being himself. An irritating little man, Oh, and another thing. Why do people ask David Baddiel what he thinks of comedy? He's about as funny as a road accident. Overrated mediocre fool.
