Publisher's Summary

This is a free excerpt of The Ricky Gervais Show: The Complete Fifth Season.

Ricky Gervais, of course, is the award-winning co-creator and star of The Office (upon which the current NBC hit series is based) and HBO's Extras. Steve Merchant, who also stars in Extras, is his long-time creative partner. Karl is a pile of protoplasm that mimics the functions of a human being.

What the critics say

"If Mr. Gervais made only podcasts for the rest of his career, I'd keep downloading." (The New York Times)

If you hate wearing a tie to work, listen to this.

If you hate wearing a neck tie to work, you'll love what Ricky and the gang has to say about it.

Do NOT listen with a beverage in your mouth!

Monty Python of the New Millenium? Not really. Instead of doing sketches, these guys ramble and discuss random facts and events in an effort to draw out the complete moronic genius of Karl Pilkington. I love Monty, but I also love Gervais, Pilkington, and Merchant. I gave it 3 stars for story since there's not really a story. But that is of no consequence.

Was it funny?

This was only 3 minutes long. I didn't laugh once. It might be because I'm American not English. But I didn't just didn't get it.

Shorty

I started the audiobook. I went to the kitchen to get something. When I came back, it's done.

Hilarious

What made the experience of listening to Ricky Gervais Show the most enjoyable?

I've been a fan of the "Idiot Abroad" tv show and this was a great preview to the show.

Not their best work

What would have made Ricky Gervais Show better?

Show has been much better, this is just a really weak effort.

Has Ricky Gervais Show turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

no changes-just better writing/topic

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ricky Gervais Show?

would have chosen another excerpt-this one is just plain bad.

Any additional comments?

yep-excerpt pretty much sucks

Gervais - Shmervias

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. I am glad it was only a sample and only three minutes or so as already I was bored!

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure yet, but it surely wont be anything from Ricky Bervais!

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Nothing. They tried to be funny and didn't succeed!

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No.

Any additional comments?

Boring and a total waste of time!
