For proof that no topic is sacred to Ricky Gervais, no subject or moment too sensitive, see Exhibit A: his own mother's funeral. Gervais described the scene on 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).
As relatives wept around him, he kindly passed around tissues. But these weren't regular tissues. "I'd written something on each tissue, things like 'sniveling [beep],' things like 'you snotty pig,'" explained the comedian. "[The vicar's] thinking, 'I've never got laughs before.'"
