- Gervais at the Golden Globes
I avoid watching as not a fan either.Posted 1 month ago
My brother was at UCL at the same time as him, lived in the same hall in the first year. Apparently everyone but his clique thought he was an idiot and he believed a new sun was dawning from his behind (that’s the bowdlerised version) Clearly a successful idiot thoughhooliMember
Why would you bother listening to it? Listening to a comedian you know you don’t like just to say you don’t like them.. most bizarre.
Happy to give him another chance, there have been plenty of people who I wasn’t too keen on but on listening a bit more I decided I was hasty in not liking them.

Idiot? Didn’t he have something to do with creating, writing and directing “The Office” which was great at the time.
Probably successful because a lot of people find what he does funny
I watched about half of one episode of the Office. Never have bothered to try again. I thought it was dreadful. But many others disagree. It just shows that different people find different things funny. If you like it I’m happy for you.Posted 1 month agosurroundedbyhillsSubscriber
I am hot and cold on Gervais, he seems to enjoy his jokes too much at times, that said I think he’s on the money at this kind of stuff. What is a full basket of ironing is the reaction by some critics on Twitter saying that his “humour” deflated the importance of the speeches by actors, which is a bit like saying the sun is bright in daytime. They are just **** pretending!Posted 1 month agobigdeanSubscriber
I’ll admit i struggle to like Gervais, didn’t like the office or the pilkington phase. Actually the parody of him in upstart crow is spot on for me.
However i’ve seen stage shows and interviews that are very good, thought the golden globes intro funny but the reactions of the stars made it more funny. Why so serious?.
Afterlife was very good and (i think) on twitter yesterday he posted.Posted 1 month ago
