    "Do NOT listen with a beverage in your mouth!"

    Monty Python of the New Millenium? Not really. Instead of doing sketches, these guys ramble and discuss random facts and events in an effort to draw out the complete moronic genius of Karl Pilkington. I love Monty, but I also love Gervais, Pilkington, and Merchant. I gave it 3 stars for story since there's not really a story. But that is of no consequence.

    What made the experience of listening to Ricky Gervais Show the most enjoyable?

    I've been a fan of the "Idiot Abroad" tv show and this was a great preview to the show.


    Any additional comments?

    will have to check out all of the seasons of this one.

    "Not their best work"
    What would have made Ricky Gervais Show better?

    Show has been much better, this is just a really weak effort.


    Has Ricky Gervais Show turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    no changes-just better writing/topic


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ricky Gervais Show?

    would have chosen another excerpt-this one is just plain bad.


    Any additional comments?

    yep-excerpt pretty much sucks

    "Gervais - Shmervias"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. I am glad it was only a sample and only three minutes or so as already I was bored!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure yet, but it surely wont be anything from Ricky Bervais!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Nothing. They tried to be funny and didn't succeed!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Boring and a total waste of time!

    "Absolutely Download - Moment of Comedic Genius"
    Where does Ricky Gervais Show rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is only an excerpt, but it's made me very interested in The Ricky Gervais Show. So it's done it's job. If the rest is as naturally amusing as this, it will be in top 10% of Audible downloads.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ricky Gervais Show?

    At three minutes, it's all pretty memorable.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Interaction.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The. Ricky. Gervais. Show.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not sure why some reviewers were so harsh. I can only assume it's because comedy is so subjective. I'd remind you nothing is for everyone, and that's ok. It's a three min free excerpt. Why not give it a try? I think you'll smile.

    "Just a short snippet of 3 minutes"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Not enough to really get into or not. Basically, a 3-minute ad to try and sell more rather than provide any real content.
