Ricky Gervais Brings His Stand-Up Comedy to HBO


Ever since turning up for a funny bit with Steve Carell at the Emmys in September, British comedian Ricky Gervais has been back in the news, big-time. He's been rumored as a host for the Oscars (though he denies that he'd take the job) and even hinted that he might like to appear on NBC's version of The Office, the show he co-created.


This weekend, Gervais will be back on HBO — where his second TV series, Extras, finished its run last year — for the premiere of his stand-up special, Ricky Gervais: Out of England. The special was taped at a live show in New York and features Gervais riffing on a variety of topics, including Nazis, obesity, AIDS, and other things often seen as taboo.
