Gervais at the Golden Globes
It’s all a bit cringe worthy, and not really that funny.Posted 8 months ago
A good description of Gervais. Not a fan.Posted 8 months ago
Hilarious as usual, though not as cutting as previous years.Posted 8 months ago
Brilliant. I felt no cringe, just lolz 😆Posted 8 months ago
From what I’d read in the news, I was expecting it to be crap, but I thought that was as good as usual!Posted 8 months ago
I can’t believe what happened next!Posted 8 months ago
I’m not a fan, never have been. That didn’t change my opinionPosted 8 months ago
I thought that was very funny, the Huffman number plate gag had me laughing out loud. I was never a fan but like After Life.Posted 8 months ago
not a fan
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.Posted 8 months ago
Brilliant as usual 🙂Posted 8 months ago
I avoid watching as not a fan either.Posted 8 months 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 though
Idiot? Didn’t he have something to do with creating, writing and directing “The Office” which was great at the time.Posted 8 months ago
Probably successful because a lot of people find what he does funny…
I thought he was great back in the 11 oclock show days, went off him for a few years as he seemed a bit too amused at himself for my liking during the Merchant/Pilkington phase but I’ve gone full circle, funny and seems like a good guy.Posted 8 months ago

I like the fact that he stands up against people who hunt lions etc. I think he is really funny too. Much needed in the PC times.Posted 8 months ago
Yep – made me smile too. Seems to be enjoying himself and having a giggle along the way … paying well for him too.
No bad vibes for him from here.Posted 8 months ago

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.

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 8 months ago
I can find him cringey,funny or even not funny but I was laughing at a lot of that.Posted 8 months ago
Never understood why he was so popular, doesn’t do anything for me.Posted 8 months ago
The James Corden line is fantastic 😂Posted 8 months ago
Pretty sure he must have a mandate to be outrageous to raise the profile of Golden Globes. The awards do get more coverage now.Posted 8 months ago
Gervais made me laugh anyway.Posted 8 months ago
I’m a gervais fan the office is absolutely brilliant. I like his openness and like Sascha love putting the boot in 🙂Posted 8 months ago
Meh …. Click bait comedy for me
You know you shouldn’t, because it’s all a bit naff, but you can’t help but be a little amused.Posted 8 months ago
He’s done some good films, the one about a Dentist and a ghost is very amusing..Posted 8 months ago
Clever, dry and ballsy.Posted 8 months ago
I loved/cringed at The Office. Everything else on TV never seems funny but I really do like his stage shows.Posted 8 months ago
The Golden Globes is usually excellent and I’ll find time later to watch it.
After Life was very good.Posted 8 months ago
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 8 months ago
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 8 months ago
“Just because you disagree with me, doesn’t make you right”
I didn’t know that he’s a ventriloquist. He seems very good at it.Posted 8 months ago
Gervais can be a bit hit or miss for me too but I liked his Globes speech.
Jonathan Pie nails the outrage properly (as ever):
