Ricky Gervais

I’ve come to realize Ricky Gervais is like alcohol. His brand of comedy tastes bitter in the mouths of a lot of people. He’s a acquired taste. But if you’re a fan you drink his comedy like you would at a wine tasting. The nuances just make you laugh.


Well, Ricky Gervais is back again with a new offering called, ‘Learn English with Ricky Gervais.’ Though the real star of the show is Karl Pilkington, Ricky’s favorite comedic pet project. Karl Pilkington is a former radio producer, who has really become Gervais’ muse.


Billed as a comedy language lesson that will be subtitled in many languages and offered on an open platform for even more fan subtitling, the series looks like another opportunity for Gervais to wind Pilkington up, and laugh as the conversation spins in all sorts of ridiculous directions.


You can get the first episode of the series for free on iTunes Tuesday, August 14, 2012. And after that, Gervais wrote in a blog post this week, ‘either charge a few dollars per episode, or find a sponsor and stream for free.’


Of Pilkington, Ricky said, ”I’ll say he is [my best friend], but mainly just down to the fact that I don’t have many mates,” he told this reporter last year. “That puts him as the default best mate, I suppose. Yeah, we get on. I suppose he calls me more than I call him, just because he can be pretty annoying. That’s why it’s good that he’s doing well in America, because it means he’s over there more often than he’s here, so I’m happy about that. Not because I want his career to do good, but because it means he leaves me alone for a couple of weeks at a time.”


Well said Ricky, Now check out the first trailer below.
