THE RICKY GERVAIS SHOW
From the creators of the smash-hits The Office and Extras, The Ricky Gervais Show is an animated comedy based on a series of highly popular audio podcasts voiced by Gervais, collaborator Stephen Merchant, and colleague/friend Karl Pilkington that have been set to clever, eye-catching animation. The podcasts’ storylines, which were inspired by Pilkington’s offbeat musings about life, built a tremendous following amongst fans, earning a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most downloads. Among the topics discussed in season one are Pilkington’s view on population control, monkeys in space, lion mutilation, public nudity, reversing the aging process, "Monkey News" segments and much more.
The Ricky Gervais Show premiered on HBO in February 2010 and won an Emmy for Outstanding Achievement in Animation Character Design. Gervais earned a spot on Time Magazine’s 2010 list of Most Influential People and has been selected to host the Golden Globe Awards for the second time in 2011. He has earned multiple awards for his work in television, including Emmy and Golden Globe Awards.
