Ricky has got a wild imagination in that very narrow brain of his

An absolute Irony Lord

Quote from: Pimhole on May 25, 2022, 06:13:28 PMNo he didn't, actually. It just got widely reported like that.

Didn't he apologize over Monggate on Alan Carr?

Sure I saw some amusing posts on here about him being Asexual. He could join the LGBTQIA alliance. Go on all the marches and such. Be the poster boy for the cause. His way in. Redemption.

I've often wondered:where do the TBEU people get their characters' photos from? Are they just some random stock images they've found of the same models doing various poses/faces?

it's easy to make a fake face with machine learning these days, like Titania McGrath. Craig's face there is comped in with this Matt Forde poster for his Brexit Through the Gift Shop show

I've wondered that myself but I have absolutely no idea, if it was just a single photo I'd assume it was one of those ai-generated ones (I believe that's what non-comedian Andrew Doyle used for his 'characters') but they seem to have a few in the pile of each character.

Yet nowhere near as good as Slade, which is all that matters really.

Always found it weird how Ricky, former musician and massive David Bowie obsessive became a huge fan of Coldplay and raved about them endlessly on the XFM show and also had Chris Martin appear and perform with him on Extras. Bit basic isn't it? Coldplay?

That pretty much sums him up.

Reincarnation: 'I saw a show where people came as who they were in a past live. Two Napoleons'

He's done that before. XFM? Also I doubt he saw any such show.

Wow, the 'why does everyone who believes in incarnation believe they were Napoleon' is so hacky it could almost get used in a parody of Seinfeld-style stand up. 'Hey what's the deal with people who believe in reincarnation? They can't all have been Napoleon!'

Saw that on the Mary Whitehouse Experience, c. 1991

Looking forward to his blistering Dalek takedown in the next one.

Just watched it and I agreed with him so hard that my eyes bled. Bravo.

I mean the way I worded that wasn't great but he meant things like chicken legs, roasts, chops and that kind of thing. He was ok with curries and bolognese and things where its origin was less identifiable. Which seems odd to me, like it's ok if he can kid himself that he doesn't know what it is.

idunnosomename

so obviously i dont have netflix and also would never watch this unfunny cunt just like I used to ignore his ad bumpers on the 11 o'clock show when I was staying up to watch the Ali G bits, but this is from the end of it

Quote from: JaDanketies on May 25, 2022, 07:44:49 PMVeganism hints towards an empathetic mindset, surely, but nowadays there's some crossover with the Quartz-loving vegans and Qanon bullshit, that Qanon Shaman was a hippie dippie vegan. Not to say Gervais is a Quartz-loving Quanoner but it ain't so simple, especially nowadays. Very easy to be in one vegan rabbithole and another fash rabbithole and to merely suffer some occasional downvotes. You'll just think, "I am a fresh mindset in this group."

Veganism is very compatible with capitalism - while that means we have quite a lot more consumer choice, it also means stuff like this continues to happen.

From Twitter -

QuoteWas just reminded of this vegan, socialist, Latin American branded meat company, See No Evil, backed by private equity & founded by these guys. Their products were all named after Latin American revolutionaries, and when their employees tried to unionize they fired them.

Yeah that Brian lad makes all the arguments I feel a typical vegan would make, it is confusing to be vegan but also not care about humans. Vegans should by definition care more about sentient life, not less.

As for shitty businesses being shitty, yeah that's just capitalism innit. Any ideology you hold is going to be at the mercy of human greed and profit.

Dr Rock

I guess he comes close to saying trans women are women, possibly too close for some terfs. Would it have killed him to have an equal go at terfs, surely there's some actually original jokes to be made there... wait maybe that was the problem. (He'd mentioned if it's part of nature, it's natural, so could have spun it off from there).

The worst bit though was when he wisely explained that if you say a band is shit NO! - they are only shit to you. Because things are subjective. Mindblown etc.

pigamus

It's similar in tone to what Rowling said - live your best life, sleep with anybody who'll have you etc. I think what they try to do is come up with a form of words which sort of says "I support everybody!" without having to say that trans women are women.

The 'funny as a fart at a baby's funeral' text was no doubt made up also.

I enjoyed the group watch we did of Nature (?) - honestly can't remember and lost interest googling it 10 seconds in - but like @bluejam says - not going to bother with this as it's just too tiresome and a chore (hope I got the gist of your posts right).

Apart from this winding me up throughout - but not for the reasons that truth-telling philosopher and prophet Ricky Gervais might think (those reasons being it's a pastiche of delivery of people I actually respect and enjoy plus the audience's horrible attitude to the world if they think this is progressive and constructive - that ending would be the icing on the cake. He has to row back from being "brave" - i.e. horrible in a hackneyed way to minority groups - by explaining (as ever) that it's a joke. I'm being ironic. Kindness if magic. Even tubby Ricky Gervais isn't thick enough to think his audience lean back at that point and say "yeeees. We've also been enjoying this take on how the manufactured culture wars are detracting from trans rights". He has spent 90 minutes (is it?) reinforcing a whole load of stuff to make the world actively worse.

Plus - the punchline probably gets a massive laugh from the fuckwits who enjoy this edgy comedy from about 1998. I would have more respect if he just came on and did the "black man's cock" joke over and over punctuated by that dance.

I know he hates one particular clip of that being posted. Is it Live 8? Where he thinks that's what people have come to see. Can someone help me write a bot that just follows him round the internet and posts that? (it's clear I don't really know what a bot is).
