All of comedian Ricky Gervais' television projects eventually make their way across the Atlantic. The Office came overseas before American television made the full on adaptation. Then his popular podcasts with the "little round headed buffoon that is Karl Pilkington" got picked up and animated before Karl became the Idiot Abroad. Gervais' new project, again with Pilkington, is called Derek and is scheduled to air in the U.K. soon but there's no word on when the one-off dramedy will come to North America. That doesn't mean you can't watch the new clips.
Ricky Gervais has made two big announcements regarding his TV future. HBO's Life's Too Short will be getting a second season, and Gervais is also creating a spin-off of An Idiot Abroad called The Short Way Round.
Fans of Ricky Gervais will get a double-dose of the comedian this Sunday night. Not only is his comedy series Life’s Too Short set to make its U.S. premiere on HBO, and before that, he’s lending his voice to Fox’s animated comedy Family Guy. Check out the preview ahead, which shows Gervais in his role as an annoying dolphin.
For those of us who have been looking forward to Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant new series Life’s Too Short, the wait is nearly over. The comedy premiered last year in the U.K. and will make its debut on this side of the pond on HBO this Sunday night.
While Karl Pilkington may not be celebrating the Bucket List’s worth of daring and uncomfortable tasks he’s set to compete during the second season of An Idiot Abroad, Pilkington, Ricky Gervais, and Stephen Merchant can celebrate the hefty ratings boost the series’ second season premiere earned on the Science channel this weekend.
Ricky Gervais has a number of TV projects set to hit the small screen in America this year, including the U.S. premiere of his new show Life’s Too Short on HBO next month, and further down the line, the return of The Ricky Gervais Show. Meanwhile this Saturday (January 21), An Idiot Abroad 2: The Bucket List airs on the Science channel.
While Ricky Gervais says he “had a blast” hosting the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards this past Sunday night, the comedian is done for good with the job... or so it seems, based on recent comments. Gervais took to his blog this week to weigh in with his thoughts on the Golden Globes and share a picture of himself during what may be a backstage moment at the event.
I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that last night’s Golden Globes didn’t feature quite enough Ricky Gervais. The host took the stage numerous and fired a few comedic shots into the crowd, some of which hit and others not so much, but over all, it sounds like NBC was pleased with his efforts.
The 69th Golden Globe Awards air tonight and Ricky Gervais is back as host. After last year's great performance, resulting 'ban' and then ensuing re-hire it hasn't been the smoothest road back behind the podium but the one thing that hasn't shaken at all is the comedian himself. Throughout the turmoil, Gervais continued to stand behind his performance and state that if he would ever come back, he not only wouldn't change a thing but he would up the ante. So that's what we have to look forward to tonight.
Those of you who have been waiting for the second season of An Idiot Abroad to premiere have only to count down about a week. The series returns to the Science Channel next Saturday as Karl Pilkington tackles a bucket list of ridiculous and dangerous tasks for our entertainment.
The Golden Globe Awards may play second fiddle to the more prestigious Emmys or Academy Awards but the mere fact that they've brought back Ricky Gervais as host almost guarantees that the show itself will be second to none. Even with the big hubbub about his hosting job last year, when all those celebrities got their egos in a knot, NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association decided to give the playful comic another shot and roasting the room.
Ricky Gervais must be one of the busiest people in show business. Perhaps not one of the busiest people in Hollywood, mind you (even if he's hosting the Golden Globes), because, unlike a lot of talented people who find success in America, the majority of his projects are still developed and aired on British television. However, that doesn't mean we don't get to enjoy the funny promos for all of his series, including these new spots for An Idiot Abroad 2: The Bucket List.
With Ricky Gervais confirmed to host the 2012 Golden Globes we’re left to spend the next couple of months wondering what topics he’ll tackle during the ceremony. Here are some videos from this year’s Golden Globes.
Who needs American television when Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant continue to do great work for the BBC? And this side of the pond eventually gets the series too, just a little while after they make their splash in the UK. Here's a clip of Johnny Depp, still a little raw from the Golden Globes, on their newest BBC2 series Life's Too Short.
One new show that has unlimited potential is the upcoming BBC/HBO co-production of Life's Too Short. For those who are unaware, the comedy is created by Ricky Gervais, Steven Merchant, and Warwick Davis, and will follow a variation of the real-life famous little person and his exploits in the world of entertainment. With Gervais and Merchant's flawless TV track record, how could anyone not be excited for this series? And especially so now after our first real look.
