Ricky Gervais - tool!
« on: July 02, 2007, 09:07:53 AM »
Anyone see the Di concert this muppet is banded about as the greatest comic genius of our time - yet he couldn't improvise for 3 minutes in front of a live audience- to say it was cringing to watch was an understatement.

I've never understood the lionising of this plank. One trick pony and the trick isn't even funny.

FACT

I can understand why people dont like The Office mind, some of it is so cringeworthy but he comes out with some absolute classics.

He was found out big time last night.

I'd expect his star to wane now no matter how many times he's on the Jonathan Ross show.

True Gaels wouldn't have been watching this subliminal British imperialist event masquerading as entertainment.

Anyone with a brain or an ounce of taste would not have been watching that subliminal British imperialist event masquerading as entertainment.

I'm with Gaeltacht on this, wasn't this 'show' on at the same time as the sunday game? Hang your heads in shame lads.

As for Gervais, isn't his 'one trick' the cringing embarassment routine, a great get out clause for being shit in my opinion.

Bring back 'its a royal knockout' I say.

Have to say that rickey has went way down my list of comics.

If that had been billy connelly he would be still talking yet and bringing the house down,

All Rickey could do was sing songs from the office.

Jeez LTD your arse must be sore sitting through that lot. did the Daily Express do a souvenir programme?

BTW

Sunday Game Live 1.30 - 6pm
Sunday Game        9pm -11pm.

Although i'll give you, it's a toss up (sic) between Gervais & Spillane.
