The special is unique in that it doesn’t have a host or moderator. It’s just four comedy legends matching wits, talking shop and making each other laugh in a purely conversational manner. Check out the exclusive preview below and find it on HBO when it airs on April 22.

HBO “The Ricky Gervais Show” – BOYZ sneeky peeky

Posted by ImaJustSaying on March 26, 2011


Do any of you folks appreciate Ricky Gervais or watched his HBO Show?    For those of you who don’t, let me catch you up to speed.

The Ricky Gervais Show is a comedy audio show in the UK starring Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and Karl Pilkington, later adapted into an animated televised version debuting for HBO  in 2010. The show started in November 2001 on Xfm, and aired in weekly periods for months at a time throughout 2002, 2003, 2004, and mid-2005. In November 2005, Guardian Unlimited offered the show as a podcast series of 12 shows.  Throughout January and February 2006, the podcast was consistently ranked the number one podcast in the world; it appeared in the 2007 Guinness World Record for the world’s most downloaded podcast, having gained an average of 261,670 downloads per episode during its first month.  According to the BBC, by September 2006, the podcasts of the series had been downloaded “nearly 8 million” times.

Gervais and Merchant (despite Karl’s protests) filled the show with sexual innuendos, in which they used the term “cock” multiple times. During later shows both Gervais and Merchant pointed out that they got into trouble with the radio authority for using the word “cock”, the pair often joked how it was acceptable to say “cock” referring to the male bird but not say “cock” referring to a penis.  When Ricky brought in a tin of “Cock Soup” then he and Steve made obvious sexual innuendos about the soup, while maintaining they were referring to “cock as in the bird”, and later the two played with the name of philosopher Immanuel Kant and its obvious similarity in sound to the word “cxnt”.
