He's got a decanter there, beneath his awards.

He'll just have to delete "(First Draft)" and it's good to go. Can't wait.

Wait, has Ricky Gervais won any awards? He never mentions it, or strategically points his camera at them.

It should be said that while Fighting With My Family was a generic and cliche riddled sports/coming of age dramedy, it was a really, really good example of how to make cliches work. It had the right amount of laughs and air punching moments! While it's no classic, it is head and shoulders above After Life.

One thing my partner and I liked about Fighting with My Family was the juxtaposition of flashy Florida and tarmaccy Norwich. Enjoyed it. And an unexpected subject matter from Stephen Merchant. A slightly time-slipped wrestling biopic.

Gervais, meanwhile, continues to stun me. Whenever I see him pontificate for few seconds in an autoplaying Facebook video, positioned as a self-appointed Bertrand Russell of comedy, he reminds me of some of the amateur comics I know. Just the shallowest takes on offense and satire. Hours of drivel delivered with a philosophical air. Desperate to be one of the Incisive, Clever Comics - but one who also wrote Derek. Now there's a juxtaposition.

Gervais is The Darkness of comedy. In that they were rock music for people who don't really like rock music. Or still are in a desolate fashion.

That's one of the ways he reminds me of people I know. One person in particular likes to write inane 'edgy' posts, and then comments underneath 'wonder how many people I'll offend/annoy with this one'.

Invariably it is none.

Got to say I thought Fighting with my Family was pretty rubbish, Hello Ladies was more enjoyable than Gervais has ever done on his own tho tbf.

(First Draft). Yeah, Rick, as if you're going to put any more work into it than that.

He should be celebrating the end of the final draft, but he's so excited he can't wait the extra day.

Gervais referred to The Darkness as the best band going in one of the XFM shows.

Did nobody send that un-Godliman video to Captain D for further analysis, then?

(First Draft). Yeah, Rick, as if you're going to put any more work into it than that.

Actually, he needs his top-notch Script Supervisor to look over it and give him those all-important notes before he can hand over the final draft:

All this is evidence of is that he's managed to type up and print a title page for a script all by himself.

EDIT: actually he might have had help with it for all we know.
