Still the best stand up.

Not afraid to say it as it is, or as he thinks it is, Ricky Gervais is back on Netflix, and another comedy special.

Maybe not as sharp or funny as the last one, but still some very memorable moments and laugh out loud jokes. Ricky daring to say what many people think, but are too afraid to admit to.

I am stunned that he's still featuring on Netflix, his 'Brand' of humour doesn't exactly seem to fit in with the company's image.

He doesn't hold back, ripping into everyone, and he says, it's alright to laugh at things, it doesn't necessarily mean it's your opinion. Many people have lost the ability to laugh, it's sad.

He's about the only stand up comedian left that's actually funny and original.

8/10.

Time to take time before another stand-up, Ricky.

I love Ricky Gervais and i've done so since The Office. He's made so many great movies, tv and radio shows and stand-up specials over the years, but his two latest Netflix specials has been pretty bad.

I don't know if he's got a contract with Netflix to produce X amount of shows during a set time, but it surely feels like that's the fact. That's usually how Netflix works with big names which time and time again becomes apparent in the results.

I know that it usually takes many years for a stand-up comedian to come up with, filter, try out and reach an hour of solid material and considering that his last special came out just last year and that he's a person with many irons in the fire, his material can't be solid. And it isn't. Gervais gets stuck on 2-3 subjects and he seems to aim at being controversial and poking at people who doesn't like him more than being funny. Personally i have no issues with controversial and shocking, but it better be funny ...and it isn't.

Meh

I'm somewhat of a fan. I've genuinely enjoyed some of Ricky Gervais' past specials. This one? Not so much.

I honestly don't care whether the material is appropriate or not or whether it crosses a line or not. In humor, I think it's all fair game. They're just jokes and it's all good. So I have zero issues with any of that. My issue is simply that the show was just not very inspired and ultimately not particularly funny. It wasn't bad, but there wasn't much of a coherent narrative for the show, there were many one-liners that fell quite flat, stories that weren't particularly interesting, jokes that didn't elicit anything (at least in me) and quite frankly, Ricky just seemed to be going through the motions in this show. It felt a little phoned in.

There are much better stand up shows out there than this one.
