ricky-gervais-out-of-england-2-hboRicky Gervais: Out of England 2 airs tonight on HBO. One of the U.K’s greatest comics will be doing a stand up gig at the Chicago Theater in Chicago. Ricky will be dropping his comical insight on drugs, fat people, acts of God, and bible stories. If you are asking yourself who is Ricky Gervais, shame on you, but read on.

Rickey Gervais might be one of those guys whose name sounds familiar. When you hear his name you know you have heard it before. You know you know the guy, you just can’t quiet place him. That is, of course, unless you live in the U.K. where he is a superhero, a legend and one of the best known comics in the country. Here is the U.S he is still breaking in. He made some serious ground when he hosted the Emmys a few years ago and was very funny doing so. What a lot of people don’t know about him is that he was one of the original creators and cast members of The Office. The Office here in the US is a spin-off of the original which was started in the U.K. It helped shoot Gervais to stardom there and made him very wealthy when they brought it to the U.S., cast Steve Carell in Gervais’s role and found themselves with a bonefide hit. The Office now has versions of the show running in nearly 100 different countries. Gervais was even named one of Time Magazines most influential people.

Not too bad for a guy you might have heard of who’s name sounds familiar.

Something else a lot of people may not know about Gervais is that he is a very funny stand-up comic. His newest special Ricky Gervais: Out of England 2 airs tonight at 10pm on HBO. Gervais is known for his often off color humor and his willingness to tackle just about any subject matter in his shows. He says that he asks himself if he thinks it is funny and if he thinks it is, he will go ahead and talk about it. Expect his takes on the current TSA security checks, the recession, flying first class, obesity and many other current topics. Gervais has a very straight forward release and his humor is very observational. It is almost like he can’t believe we all have had these same thoughts. What he seems to know is that many of us have, he just has the balls to say it out loud.

It should be a great show by a guy who is a brilliant comic.
