Gervais - Funny?!

Last night I had the misfortune to see a couple of minutes of the end of a Ricky Gervais gig on the television.  In the seconds that I saw the  ghastly, talentless man told a 'joke' about paedophilia.  To be honest, I'm still in shock now.. It was truly disgusting and I was utterly appalled, still am.

I have never liked the man, nor found him remotely amusing, but this 'joke' was really beyond the pale.  To be honest, I would think it was a punishable offence, but maybe that's wishful thinking.

Like a number of other talentless 'personalities', this man 's fame appears to me to be part of Emperor's New Clothes Syndrome.  No-one is willing to stand up and point out exactly how talentless Gervais, Jonathan Ross (currently attempting to redeem his reputation yet again), Russell Brand, Charlie Brooker, and many, many more pointless 'celebrities' are.

If only our society recognised and acknowledged genuine talent, instead of those in the right place at the right time, or with the right celebrity mates.  What a shame.


  1. I applaud you, Leta! I wish I had guts to do a blog post about the pointless celebs and disgusting comedians. Can't stand Gervais, and someone would have to hold a gun to my head to make him watch him.

  2. I have never liked Gervais - I agree that everyone goes on like he is the next best thing but I do not find him funny at all :( x

  3. As much as you might not like them, the ones you have mentioned do do a lot for charity with their 'celeb' status. I did quite like Ricky Gervais a few years ago particularly The Office, Extras etc but he is probably past his best now I must admit! Each to their own and all but I am personally glad Jonathan Ross is back on the TV, I really enjoy his chat show on a Saturday night! x

  4. I cannot stand the idiot now....I liked him in The Office too but that is it...Well apart from the Idiot Abroad show but he's only on a couple of minutes each show...

    I saw a bit of the Jonathan Ross show the other night and Russell Brand was on there....I wanted to throw something at the TV! He annoys me too...But mummyoftwo is right they do a lot for charity...Russell Brand was on there promoting what he's up to for comic relief....I almost liked him for a second but then came to my

  5. That's way out of order how can these things be funny... You're right it's punishable absoultly awful that's not even anything to joke about

  6. I can take your point about Gervais but I love Charlie Brooker and think he's a genius! Each to their own but I agree entrirely that some things aren't a joke. What joke was it that offended you so much - I haven't seen it on the news x

  7. I cannot stand any of those 'people' you have named! Charlie Brooker took the mick out of my mum once as she was on a tv programme but it was actually quite funny & that's the only time any of them have made me laugh! I wouldn't even enter a competition to meet any of them & I DO like my competitions!!!
