THEN: A briliant British comedian who helped create and starred in The Office and Extras.

NOW: An annoying little atheist who has completely sold out, starring in vanity projects such as Ghost Town and The Invention of Lying. Can't go thirty seconds without mentioning he is an atheist.
I loved Ricky Gervais in The Office and Extras, but he totally sold out to smug American liberal Audiences by making The Invention of Lying. In addition, he has lost weight and is getting a tan to be some kind of sexier fat guy in order to get more 'romantic comedy' roles.

In ten years from now, people will be saying "man Ricky Gervais was hillarious, until he moved to America and started playing the same character over and over again (fat, depressed single guy) in every movie he made."

The best comedian ever. Made and starred in the office (which started in Britain). He was awesome in muppets most wanted and he is hilarious!!! He is an athiest.
Person 1: Have you heard of Ricky Gervais?

Person 2: OF COURSE, HE STARRED IN THE OFFICE AND IS HILARIOUSLY FUNNY AND IS AN ATHIEST! WHO HASNT HEARD OF HIM....

A British man that can't stop reminding people that 'The Office' started in britian every 2 minutes, somehow got famous in the US and now walks around with a sense of entitlement.
Ricky Gervais thinks he's talented because he has awful teeth and thinks hes funny even though hes not and the american "office" is better and doesnt admit that The NBC Steven Carell office is what put him on the "map"..... Michael Scott (stve carrell) RULES!!!
