Oh, he really is avoiding any mention of Merchant there.


Oh yes, he totally is.

I liked Gervais' description of The 11 o'Clock Show as "sort of like a cutting-edge no-holds-barred sort of Saturday Night Live". Ha.

Does he retweeted that same tweet from "Ricky Gervais Trivia" every few days?

Why? It's weird.

Oh good, always thought Sam Harris was a good debater with some shite opinions, now I realise he is completely morally bankrupt. It's hard to decide who comes off worse here, Harris for being so aggressive about "good faith arguments" and then allowing a cynical sell-out comedian on his show, or Gervais for trying to gain credibility by appearing on this wank fest.

It's Harris that comes across worse.

I’d say there’s a decent chance that Gervais will be declared Hitchens’s replacement as one of the so-called Four Horsemen of New Atheism (that “so-called” modifier is there as my personal cringe buffer). For sure if Jane Fallon helps him shit out a book on the subject.

I keep forgetting his partner is a bestselling novellist- ie, someone who presumably understands a thing or two about writing believable plots and relatable characters. Does she ever help him out, I wonder? I suspect not...

I've also just realised that whole thing about how Ricky has never finished reading a book must mean he has also never finished one of Jane Fallon's...
