Ricky Gervais (born 1961) became famous with his television series “The Office” and “Extras”, both of which he co-wrote and co-directed with Stephen Merchant. Gervais also played the leading roles in both of the television series. He is an English comedian, director, actor, producer, radio presenter, musician, and writer. The Invention of Lying is Gervais’ directorial debut in 2009.

Gervais’ first major stand-up show took place at the Cafe Royal, as part of the 2001 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Gerveis’ humor mostly covers subjects like British culture, celebrities, relationships, sex, self-deprecation, obesity, body image, current events, and religion. He has received numerous awards throughout his career. He was named as the 100 world’s most influential people on the Time in 2010. In 2010, Gervais hosted the Golden Globe Awards, and although his humor was highly criticized, he returned to host in 2011 and is signed on to host in 2012 as well.

“Out of England – The Stand-Up Special” was a sell-out. It was recorded live at the WaMu Theater at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Out of England is an hour of daring
observational, insulting humor. Gervais holds on to his cheeky, ironical style. Gervais’ unique views on issues such as Hitler, fund-raising, obesity, autism, fame, nursery rhymes, AIDS, and his penis size are all dealt with. Also included on the DVD is an engaging interview with Gervais.
