Golden Globes Ratings: How Ricky Gervais Did Compared To Tina And Amy
Ricky Gervais’ stint at the 73rd Annual Golden Globes Awards was a whole lot tamer this time around. A good chunk of people tuned in for the event. Here's how he did compared to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who hosted last year.

Should Ricky Gervais Have Gone Even Edgier At The Golden Globes?
Ricky Gervais is a familiar face when it comes to the Golden Globes. While most viewers could agree that Gervais never failed to bring the laughs, he was known the push the envelope pretty far. One of the biggest questions of his 2016 return was of just how far he'd be going this time around.

What Did Ricky Gervais Ask Mel Gibson At The Golden Globes? Now We Know
Ricky Gervais was back to host the 2016 Golden Globes, and he certainly did not take the easy way out. The raunchy comedian went right after numerous people in the room, and even took it to presenters immediately before they came out on stage. Just ask Mel Gibson.

2016 Golden Globes: TV Winners Updated Live
Tonight, Ricky Gervais is going to return to the stage as the host of the 2016 Golden Globes. While a lot of the audience may be glued to the screen wondering what the sometimes-controversial host will say or do next, the Golden Globes is ultimately still about the game changers on television over the past year.

What Ricky Gervais Really Thought About The Golden Globes Backlash
When Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes for three years in a row from 2010-2012, some viewed his hosting stints as mean-spirited and over-the-top. In a recent interview, Ricky Gervais explained what he thinks about the Golden Globes backlash.

Ricky Gervais Will Host The 2016 Golden Globes
If you’re looking for someone to host an entertainment awards ceremony that doesn’t have quite the prestige as the Oscars or the Eimmys, then it helps to have someone known for a sharp wit and a lack of Hollywood pretentiousness. Re-enter Ricky Gervais.

How Ricky Gervais Will Handle Being Made Fun Of At The Golden Globes
On the lighter end of the Ricky Gervais' roasting spectrum are Golden Globe co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who have poked fun at the Brit for his own hosting stint. But rather than sit back and take it with a smile and a high-pitched chortle, Gervais will possibly use this year’s ceremony to take it right back to them.

 Rick Gervais' David Brent Is Back And Singing This Ridiculous Song
Even though we’d never want to actually deal with Ricky Gervais’ brilliantly aggravating David Brent on a daily basis, it certainly is a discomforting pleasure to have him back in our lives every so often. This may be our first peek into Brent’s upcoming transition to the silver screen, and there’s arguably no better way to experience this self-inflated buffoon than in song.

Watch Ricky Gervais Play Word Sneak With Jimmy Fallon On The Tonight Show
Ricky Gervais paid a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Naturally, words were exchanged. And not just the usual funny words one might expect from comedic-minded people like Ricky Gervais and Jimmy Fallon. The two engaged in an actual word game during Gervais' interview.

The Office's David Brent Drops More Wisdom And Spaceman Lyrics In Ricky Gervais' Latest Video
So, unless I'm misinterpreting David Brent's words, he thinks he's like Winston Churchill or Mahatma Gandhi, but he's doing it with music. That's very wise. Also wise? Not being easily baited. Brent will talk about whether or not he's single, but he refuses to answer the "A-minor" question. Some cheeky fan though that was a good question to ask, but you can't get one past Brent, can you?

The Office's David Brent Gives Guitar Lessons In New Video
David Brent is back! Again! Ricky Gervais' beloved Office character is now offering guitar lessons to his fans. The video above popped up on Ricky Gervais' YouTube channel. Like Michael Scott, Brent is actually musically talented. But also like Michael Scott, he often doesn't know what he's talking about. What Brent lacks in actual wisdom, he makes up for in unintentional humor, and that's always what's worked so well for Gervais' character.

Ricky Gervais' Derek Hitting Netflix In September
We’ve known for a while that Derek would head to Netflix after airing in the U.K.; however, we didn’t know when the move to Netflix would be happening. On Tuesday it was announced that all seven episodes of Derek are set to hit Netflix on September 12. The date and time is extremely precise. Derek will hit the subscription streaming service at 12:01 a.m. PST on that date.

The Office U.S. Vs. The Office U.K.: Which Comedy Wins Out?
Some might argue that comparing art is a fruitless exercise. They'd probably be right. Pitting one work against the other in some kind of quality competition certainly goes against the spirit of any true artistic endeavour but sitcoms aren't really art and nobody likes fruit. Obviously, I'm kidding. Fruit is healthy as well as delicious. And sitcoms can occasionally be Art with a capital 'A.' Now, with that pretentious bit of rationalizing out of the way, what version of The Office is better? U.K. or U.S.?

Watch Ricky Gervais Bring The Office's David Brent Back For A 10-Minute Video
Fans of the original U.K. comedy The Office didn't need to raise money via Kickstarter to see Ricky Gervais returned to the role of David Brent. The comedian did that for charity with The Return of Brent, a 10-minute segment that returns us to the bizarre world of former Wernham Hogg Paper Company (Slough branch) regional manager David Brent to show us what he's been getting up to in recent years. As it happens, he's working on his music. Or someone else's.

Ricky Gervais To Bring David Brent Back For The Office Revisited Mini Episode
Once upon a time, just before he became mega-famous on this side of the pond, Ricky Gervais starred in a little show called The Office. The U.K. series spawned the NBC comedy that's wrapping up this year, so the timing seems about right for David Brent to surface (again). And Ricky Gervais plans to make that happen for Comic Relief with a mini episode, which will air on BBC One next month.

Life's Too Short: The Complete First Season [DVD Review]
If “self-deprecating comedy” were a brand, the face of Ricky Gervais would be pasted all over it. Despite his fairly dismal ventures into filmmaking, Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s The Office and Extras are easily two of the funniest sitcoms to ever exist, and I’m fine with my favoritism showing. But when it comes to Life’s Too Short, the comedy just doesn’t measure up, because we’ve seen this already.

Ricky Gervais Debuts First Trailer For Derek
Last spring, the pilot episode for Ricky Gervais’ somewhat controversial new comedy series, Derek, aired in the UK on Channel 4. Subsequently, the series was picked up to air in 2013 and now, Gervais himself has kindly tweeted out the first trailer for the series.

Ricky Gervais Says He'll Host SNL Next Year
Maybe seeing comedian pal Louis CK hosting Saturday Night Live has finally inspired Ricky Gervais to give the gig a shot. Or perhaps we're just lucky that another great comedian could be hosting SNL this season. Nothing has been announced by NBC yet, but from what Gervais says, we may just see the actor/comedian hosting an episode of the long-running sketch comedy series sometime next year.

Learn English With Ricky Gervais Video Has Karl Pilkington Teaching The Language
In his usual open style, Ricky Gervais turned to his website to provide fans with updates on Derek’s development as well as share news about a new internet project called Learn English with Ricky Gervais. He recently finished the pilot of the series that features him and Pilkington trying to teach English to those who aren’t familiar with the language. That’s right, Karl Pilkington spreading his knowledge to the world, can you imagine what he’d be like as a teacher? You don’t have to, take a look.
