Ricky Gervais

Why is it the norm (with uk people mostly) to have a go at
him?
He’s a treasure. Watched life on the road again the other
night and the drugs might have helped but I laughed and
cried. Not many comedians can do that to me. Same with
Extras, Derek, and Afterlife (thought at times he pushes it
with that one).

With uk stars once they get too big it seems inevitable.
Especially if they start doing stuff in the US.

Don’t anyone dare compare him to James Corden. But hey,
I’d have a pint with him.

I do like him. I haven't watched After Life but I've liked
him since the 11 o'clock Show. As Morrissey' said (another
trashed treasure), We hate it when our friends become
successful.

his characters are facets of himself, so there is the
annoying "boss" in there.
He is a Gemini, like Donald Trump... always thought he was a

they don't have a go at him over Extras. the context:
LAZY_TITLE

do you think it's a good idea to punch down at trans people,
while they're extremely marginalized already, to the point
that they face extreme dangers in our society already? trans
people, mostly trans women, are many more times likely to be
killed or otherwise bodily harmed, just for trying to be
themselves.
disallowing trans women a public bathroom is a direct
attempt to erase trans people from society.
it's disgusting and harmful to joke about trans women going
around raping people, while they face violence themselves
already. Gervais' comedy special appears to be full of these
transphobic dog whistles, for instance also 'i don't hate
trans people, just trans 'ideology''.

giving equal rights to marginalized groups feels like an
attack to themselves, to people like Gervais. it confronts
them with their own freely received privileges. privilege
itself made it so they never had to look into it before.
it's good this is now changing

What gets me is how people think he's brave and
groundbreaking for repeating the politically incorrect
schtick that every comedian on earth has been doing since
the 90s. Bill Maher started it FFS! It's the most fucked-out
hole in comedy and Ricky doesn't even touch the sides. Also
he looks like an unshaven haemorrhoid.

i appreciate that this is going to sound conceited but most
ppl don't understand how comedy works. a joke is a
proposition and not a fact.

gervais and the more obvious frankie boyle have talked about
this ad nauseum.

it seems overly obvious both comedians are deliberately
dragging you into their comedic vice and i love them all the
more for doing that. but gervais is a great writer but not a
good standup.

he can be pretty funny and i quite like his delivery and
all, but he's got some regrettable tendencies to the
saccharine and the facile [picture of ricky gervais holding
a microphone stand in a crucifixion pose, the word ATHEIST
written in fake blood on his bare chest]

stop confusing sighs of lassitude with offense, but then
that wouldn't make for good marketing copy would it

The fact that the majority of murders of trans people occurs
to black sex workers in Latin America, particularly Brazil,
doesn't really mean you and your Twitter friends are greatly
at risk in "our society". You're picking a statistic from an
incredibly risky environment and making out it's happening
in "our society". I don't know how many trans-prostitute
clients in Honduras watch Gervais. Or fucking Kazakhstan.

Latin men aren't known for treating women particularly well
so at least in that regard by murdering trans women they're
all for equality.

i do get annoyed at the white nonprostitute western transes
who go on about how they risk getting murdered everytime
they go to the shops yes. still there is some very ugly
rhetoric going around and i don't think it's too strange to
worry about where it's going. and it's such a tired subject
to make jokes about, no one gave a toss only a few years ago
so why join this stupid bandwagon now. it just looks sad.

I mean... OBVIOUSLY I don't know enough about it, and I have
said ignorant, unkind things in the past. Recently I got in
touch with a very old friend from college, and her Terry
(not Thier real name) born a boy, has, and you'll have to
forgive my clumsy language, displayed feminine "leanings"
since about 3. My friend is incredibly supportive but does
also struggle with it all. But I did have a conversation
with her (my friend) for about 7 hours and I do have a
better understanding. My partner's daughter is quite
militant about it and you can't remotely discuss anything
without it going Nuclear and someone not "feeling safe". I
dont know why it's become a thing, it's been around since
the beginning of time. All that jars with me is the
aggression aimed at, and this is the only time I will say
this, cis women.

Btw I love you, big. I appreciate that you are trying to be
a good person, you fight for causes and want the world to be
a better place. It’s apparent you have your heart in the
right place. My mild frustration with you is that you may
have lost your way a little as to why you’re doing all
this in the first place: this crusade of yours. I feel you
have forgotten about love, true empathy and forgiveness.
Your world has become very black and white and you are very
quick to judge others. You’ve become a bit of an arsehole.

russell is a really angry guy who gets really upset when
people don't like Ricky Gervais. He's actually secretly in
love with another user on the forum, whose name is big. But
he'll never admit it to anyone. respects russell for his
passion for Ricky Gervais, but thinks that he needs to calm
down a bit. He thinks that russell should try to be more
understanding of people's opinions, even if he doesn't agree
with them.

You could have just directly replied to me.

Im sad it’s anger you and fleetmouse get. I’m quite ok
for Gervais to not be liked. I’m sure he can take it.
I’ve been replying because this is all on another level
for me.

I stopped reading at « Russell is angry people don’t
like Ricky Gervais ». I might be missing something
enlightening and for that I feel a bit silly. To think this
is really about Ricky Gervais makes me realise you and a few
others really take me for a fool, and just simplify me. It
hurts as I see you guys as friends but it also comforts me
as it more or less underlines why I get so emotionally
distressed by you at times. I’m not angry. Go stigmatise
someone else!
