Sounds well good!!!

Although to be fair, only twenty quid. Not a bad price for a colossal megasuperstar hollywood a-lister.

It's amazing to consider that Gervais is childfree when so much of his material seems to have come from school playgrounds.

Ricky Gervais doing AIDS jokes is probably an indication of the last time he was sexually active when his wife wanted to fuck him

He isn't married. Gervais doesn't go in for social conformities, yeah. Get with the programme, guy.

His Caitlyn Jenner material was about two years out of date so perhaps it's not surprising that he's now doing AIDS material that's 30 years out of date.

Netflix special #3 will probably feature Sweden's high suicide rate and white dog poo. He could be the edgelord Peter Kay.

Gervais does an impersonation of AIDS.

The natural endpoint of his shtick

I've not read the thread yet but there's a review up on the Guardian site: https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2019/may/30/ricky-gervais-review-liam-neeson-louis-ck-netflix-supernature

The comments are astonishing. My favourite so far:

From the review:

Quote
One routine after another is designed to flout PC propriety and startle us with rudeness. There’s the one about the “Chinaman” who mixes his L’s and R’s. (Yes, really).

I believe the only logical response is "Fucking hell".

Hmmm, I'm not so sure but I'll test it out when I'm teaching my Chinese kids tomorrow and get back to you.

A few days ago a co-worker was saying how much she loved Ricky Gervais, especially his newer stuff. The same colleague was getting nostalgic for Little Britain a few days earlier, and in particular she was doing a gleeful impression of Ting-Tong, their Thai bride character, and saying how you're not even allowed to have fun anymore without the PC brigade coming along, etc. So I suppose she'll be happy.

I’m getting Afterlife deja vu, the content of that review seems to add up to less than the 3 stars given.

Remember in the David Brent film when David Brent and Del Boy were standing up in the office going HERRO I'M HO LEE FUK at the top of their voices, and the Finchy bully-type character, the one we're meant to think is the unreasonable prick, the alpha-male lad type, told them to shut the fuck up and get on with their work? What an incisive comment on office life.

The Guardian review suggests he's still nicking things from what Karl Pilkington said nearly 20 years ago.

Yeah I seem to recall the 2 episodes of After Life I watched had numerous little bits he’d ripped from Pilkers.

I still listen to the old radio stuff and Gervais could be so funny sometimes. At least Merchant isn’t a wanker.

Unless it was material written by Gervais in the first place anyway ahhh.

Seriously though, I think every stand-up show Gervais has done has had large chunks of material directly lifted from things Karl Pilkington has said on the xfm radio shows.
