Any Ricky Gervais fans on here?

Having said that, I can not wait to see this.

I really enjoyed the original “The Office” and even have the DVDs knocking around somewhere, but I’ve always wondered if Gervais is actually acting or if he’s just found a way to capitalise on his strange personality.

I think both is true, John. His humour is chilling, cruel, knowing and self-deprecating. He is clearly very self-aware, but manages to act the complete opposite. A wonderful and IMO unique talent.

I found him hilarious but utterly cringeworthy. :frowning::scream::joy:

Yes, he’s certainly cringworthy and indeed unique and very clever. I enjoyed The Office but the few bits I’ve seen of him since have had a cruel edge that I’ve been uncomfortable with. Maybe I’m a snowflake after all.

Thank you Mandy,

I like Ricky Gervais a lot. I think he is a very talented man. I’ve only seen clips of Derek and will have to find time to sit down and watch with my wife as they have been so good. It’s nice to see that he is working with David Earl and Kerry Godliman again. Afterlife looks very funny.

Love Ricky Gervais, just re-watched ‘Derek’ and laughed and cried equally. He’s a very good observer of human behaviour. ‘Humanity’ is excellent and, again, well observed particularly when he’s talking about taking offence selectively. Looking forward to AfterLife. Really wish he would present the Oscars and he does a fabulous job of bringing just the right amount of normality to this overblown event.

He is a very talented man, and he knows it.

I’ve watched everything he’s ever done and I find him hilarious and often poignant.

He certainly has a savage sense of humour but I love anyone who is not afraid to do and say exactly what they want.

I also follow him on Twitter and Facebook and really admire his campaigning against animal cruelty and his loyalty to his long-term girlfriend of 35 years. You never hear any scandal about him either.

I think he is a comic genius - Whenever l need cheering up and some laugh out loud moments l watch the Derek Series 2 outtakes on Youtube - He and the ensemble cast are hilarious. Highly recommended.

One of a very few celebrity actors who has not allowed himself to be devoured by his own talent.

Thanks for the warning…
Apart from the “Free Love Freeway” advert, I can’t stand to watch him…find him utterly repulsive in every way…
Takes all sorts, I suppose…

A very talented man who is also a good person with a weird approach to comedy. I like Extras, I also like the way he teases his partner with photos of her alone and puts Jane with all her friends.
