Sometimes, I may smirk, but he isn't the genius people make him out to be..

Re: Do you find Ricky Gervais funny?

Nope - over-rated, although Extras is pretty good sometimes (more to do with the guests and the Scottish actress than Mr Gervais himself).

Re: Do you find Ricky Gervais funny?

I find him very difficult to watch. Some of the lines he has are funny but I don't find him anything other than extremely arrogant. If someone is naturally funny, it will tend to shine through without them having to rub it into our faces. If he realised that he might be more acceptable rather than so condescending

Re: Do you find Ricky Gervais funny?

I saw him in London, trying out material for his politics show. I think he is very funny. A bit close to the mark though so not to inevitably as shown in recent threads, not to everyones taste.

Re: Do you find Ricky Gervais funny?

I found 'The Office' excruciatingly bad and he seems only capable of being that one character

Re: Do you find Ricky Gervais funny?

Voted other. The office as a series was funny but his part in it was largely annoying to me. Gareth was the best character IMO. Still credit due for the writing.
I disliked his David Brent that much I've never watched him in anything else, he seems similar to Brent in real life.

Re: Do you find Ricky Gervais funny?

I've voted "other" because I found him reasonably funny in The Office but nothing else.
"One trick pony" springs to mind.

Mildly amusing in a feel sorry for him being embarrasing type of way

Hahahahaha, what he said, I only ever caught one episode of extra's it had Patrick Stewart in it and I don't think it portrayed him in a favourable light.

Re: Do you find Ricky Gervais funny?

What mudhut said..... with bells on

I liked The Office, but I think just because it was well written and acted, I'm sure I'd have liked it just as much if someone else had played David Brent. Everything else he's done that I've seen, I've hated, and switched off within 10 minutes.
