When we heard that we could see Ricky Gervais at the Madison Square Garden Theater, we were all over it. Like most people, we found out about Ricky Gervais years ago when we watched BBC's The Office (the only good Office!!) The series continues to be one of our favorite shows.
Here's a snapshot from his set in NYC, of Mr. Gervais pointing out two (apparently) gay dolphins mating:
We had already seen this bit in the Animals special he did. It's kind of lame that he reused some material, but there was a lot of new stuff and we laughed again at the old jokes, so, no harm done. If you're curious about what he was talking about in the above photo, you can watch the bit here (if you're sensitive to vulgar comedy, or at work, you should probably skip clicking the link).
We know we've mentioned his podcasts before, but if you haven't listened to them you should. If you have, then you're familiar with his buddy, Karl Pilkington. We're pretty excited about seeing their upcoming project, where Karl goes to see the 7 wonders of the world:
...AND the book, An Idiot Abroad: The Travel Diaries of Karl Pilkington, comes out today! We're sure it will be an amusing read.
Oh yeah, and we sat near Zach Galifianakis at the show, no big deal.
