Ricky Gervais isn’t leaving Netflix anytime soon. Following the Office star and comedian’s standup special, Gervais has announced he’ll follow the streaming Derek with a new After Life comedy; executive producing, directing and starring as a widower looking to punish the world.
Hopefully Special Correspondents is funnier than this trailer for the new Netflix movie suggests — though to be fair, some great comedies have had some pretty lame trailers. Ricky Gervais returns to the home of his series Derek for a new original film that teams the famed British comedian with Eric Bana, resulting an unlikely but seemingly delightful pairing.
After three straight years of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting, the Golden Globes invited previous three-time host Ricky Gervais (2010-2012) to return for the 2016 awards show. Said Gervais back on January 1, “Because I can see the future, I’d like to apologise [sic] now for the things I said at next week’s Golden Globes. I was drunk & didn’t give a f---.” So, did Gervais wind up having anything to apologize for this year? If you missed it, you can watch his 2016 Golden Globes monologue above and decide for yourself.
It all seems very simple, right? Take a random word and try to use is in a sentence. Jimmy Fallon and guest Ricky Gervais take that concept and turn it into the funniest three minutes you've seen in awhile! Even they can't keep it together while doing this segment...
Disney joined in on the game day fun by premiering a 'Muppets Most Wanted' Super Bowl trailer, which takes a note from its previous trailers by debuting a sampling of Twitter reviews for similar comedic effect. So, ready to hear what @KevKoast315 has to say about the new movie?
The Muppets are back -- and they're not alone -- in the new 'Muppets 2' poster. Funnyman Ricky Gervais of Golden Globes-hosting fame, Ty Burrell of 'Modern Family' and Tina Fey herself make up the non-Muppet cast for the 'Most Wanted' sequel of the coming year.
Shocker, Ricky Gervais was not on his best behavior as the Golden Globes host. Fortunately for the other stars in the audience, he wasn’t as bad as he could have been. That didn’t seem to matter to Madonna when it came time for her to take the stage.
Clearly, the good people behind the Golden Globes just couldn’t get enough of Ricky Gervais‘ antics and mud-slinging comedy since they’ve asked him back for more. ‘Saturday Night Live‘ seems assured of his impending success on Sunday that it’s booked him up solid with similar hosting gigs… well, not really similar.
