Meet Ricky Gervais

Meet Rickey Gervais was a interview and sketch comedy show created by Rickey Gervais and written by Gervais, Jimmy Carr, Robin Ince, Stephen Merchant. The concept of the show was that Gervais, a verifiable British comedian, would be playing an alternative version of himself who was snobbish and ridiculous, going so far as to affirm that famine was a "Good thing."
