The Ricky Gervais Show

Some of the most interesting and edgy comedy on television has come from the minds of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, who created and wrote the amazing "The Office" and "Extras". They began working together on radio and now they return to the audio world along with Karl Plikington for a series of 12 Ricky Gervais podcasts that the Guardian Unlimited are hosting. The episodes start on Monday, December 5.
