ricky looks slightly annoyed with them talking over him every two secconds, folding his arms, slowing speach textbook defensive posture and last stops laughing, laughs one time.... that ricky?

Here's a serious question." Cats don't live forever..they have nine lives...but"...!! These women are hilarious.

No Karl shameful.
WiseWeeabo (29 days ago)
"why are we here" is one of the easiest questions to answer; because it couldn't happen anywhere else. It's like asking why a flower blooms in your garden and not in the sahara desert.

" its like being stupid...its only painful for others" . ........Ricky is in pain and destroys the 2 presenters without them even knowing

We’re basically all here just to see if Karl gets a mention :)

Was once humble and funny ...now a bellend.
LewisJackSponge (1 month ago)
To be fair, Ricky has mentioned his brother before as someone from whom he's got his sense of humour, as well as his mother. Doesn't mean he and Karl have fell out does it

So basically it's like Joe Rogan's Podcast but with Ricky Gervais.
Alan Hope (1 month ago)
I suspect Gervais thinks he's the funniest person he knows. He was right once, but he didn't know when to stop.
Colin Duckworth (2 months ago)
He the total example of how the world's gone soft....our grandparents had to laugh in face of death to get by...now it's all I'm offended.....n crying over everything ....
colin glen (2 months ago)
he says he will be a better comedian when he is older. I doubt that very much. most comedians lose their relevance as they age and besides that he will have the growing problem of PC culture to contend with. he'll be restricted to making fun of straight men and conservative politicians.

I thought he would of said Chris finch. Bloody good rep.

Hoda and Kathie are amazing. I came for Ricky but they are get ricky better than any interviewer and ive seen em all
Thom (2 months ago)
Hag no. 2 is extremely unprofessional. If you're there to interview a guest, at least learn his name, or write it on your que cards! And the whole 'They can't tame you, you're Ricky... What's his name?' was an all time high on the cringe scale.

Martin Mowbray (2 months ago)
Also they’re pushing that he’s an atheist alot !!
Matt Phelan (1 month ago)
Martin Mowbray Unfortunately that’s all he seems to go on about these days. Sadly there are people who genuinely see him as some fountain of wisdom, when in reality he’s just an unfunny, fat little middle aged man from one of the shittiest towns in the UK.

What ??! Sounds just like with karl and steve merchant !!

oh my god i regretted clicking on this but the first minute of Ricky was worth it.
Nx Doyle (2 months ago)
Ricky's omission of Karl here might strike some as odd, maybe a little shocking. But when you consider that Ricky & Karl met when Ricky was on the cusp of 40, and within a short period Ricky viewed Karl as his best friend, and his first phone call each day. As for Steve, well...if you believe Ricky's words over the last five years, you'd never guess that he had a collaborator.

Nah Karl is not trying to b funny. Your laughing at him not with him. Thats why his tv career is dead.

I’m sorry but doesn’t Vanity Fair call this the Proust Questionnaire?
Vivid Kothari (2 months ago)
I'm hurt too, but guys, let's just move on. Things change. Ricky's idea of the funniest person changed. It's alright. Don't try to hold past else you will be hurt badly.
Steven Cassidy (2 months ago)
"Its the only show worse then this one" Love it!! You have to take off the harridans in The View. I like the way he mentions "euthanasia" and looks at Kathy Lee

That’s a low blow and a lie. Karl Pilkington is the funniest man alive no doubt. He said it for years. The fact he’s confirmed just now by saying he’s brother is the funniest, says Karl and Ricky have fallen out, doesn’t change the fact Karl is the man. Karl should’ve come flying and slammed the doors opened and shout ‘Bullsh*t’ right in that moment.

LOL. "Most successful British comedy of all time" It was decent but far from the most successful.
Steve Holmgren (3 months ago)
Ricky my favorite Atheist! Absolutely brilliant guy.
Nerezza (3 months ago)
Most successful British comedy of all time? I mean the Office is good but in a world where Monty Python, Black Adder etc exist this is a bit of a stretch. They may mean successful in number of sales and revenue earned but there's also a lot more money nowadays and far more exposure and ability to access the material.
adrian meyer (3 months ago)
The woman on the right when Ricky says he had Richard Dawkins on his show says "A fellow atheist, you guys have to hang around each other", I assume she's religious and if so isn't that just like all the idiots who go to church haha
Kevin Goldsmith (3 months ago)
I only came here to hear him say 'Karl'.... seems like he's dropped him then. Karl is still funnier than Ricky, and always will be.
Zap Brannigan (3 months ago)
butterball gervais.....didn't know he was still alive.

Ricky Gervais, is right God, is just Dog spelled backwards.
Lion El Jonson (3 months ago)
It's a shame that he just spends these days sitting on american day time chat shows :( Wish he would get the team back together again and have an anniversary podcast. Even if it's just a one off, it's been a long long time and many things have happened since then so there would be plenty to talk about. I think it would be great. Back where it all started.
Ben Mayhew (3 months ago)
What?a day time tv chat show with middle aged hasbeen girls who look like MIlfs on Xhamster.

Karl is the funniest person Ricky has met whether Ricky realizes it or not
tiernan drasdo (3 months ago)
Surely it’s Karl???!!
Laura Elizabeth (3 months ago)
Love Karl, but it's a fact that his projects apart from Ricky, are not funny. The chemistry between them is what made Karl funny. Without Ricky , Karl is just a crabby, constant whiner, without the humor.
Bruno Wills (3 months ago)
How badly has Gervais sold out. Doing the womens show circuit. Desperate to stay relevant.
DDnufcGamer (3 months ago)
People going on about Ricky not saying Karl is the funniest person anymore... It's been almost 10 years, you've never changed answers in that period or had multiple influences so the answer changes? Also he's clearly talking about his brother being intentionally funny and seeing what and how he did it made him go in to comedy. Karl was rarely intentionally funny, nor did he motivate Ricky to do anything he wasn't already doing,
Lemuel Carbonell (3 months ago)
Ricky is slowly morphing into Andy Millman with age...

Didn't know Ricky starred in the most successful British comedy of all time: Fawlty Towers
MrJobofo (3 months ago)
He's a user and always has been. He used Steve for his talent then used Karl for his. He just drifts through 'friends' and very rarely keeps in touch with people after they no longer serve him a purpose.
Julien Berndt (3 months ago)
i never look at ricky the same since I saw the gary schandling interviews
RedEnigma 99 (3 months ago)
So obvious he misses the XFM days with Karl and Steve

He wants the XFM days back, where him, steve and the goldmine Karl would blow our minds and put on the floor with laughter. I still listen to the podcasts, they're like time capsules to me.

This is the first time I hear Ricky saying that the funniest person in the whole world that he knows is someone else than Karl. Weird. 8.12 Am I the only person in this whole world who laughs when hears people saying that there is nothing after we die ? This nothingness that we have absolutely no proof/evidence for it. Yet people believe that. NDE's are the pure truth.

+Professional Meme Enthusiast 1 Have a look please. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1fZT77JFG8
~ Bright Romeo ~ (3 months ago)
+Professional Meme Enthusiast 1 LOL, you're funny. So you're saying that you know better than the Egyptians, scientists and people who practice Astroprojections. You simply rejecting a concept, that does not make the concept itself none existing. It's closed minded people who are too lazy or afraid to think outside their limited view. You clearly haven't done any homework on the subject. I'm not trying to convince you here, I'm only sharing a bit of knowledge with you. What do you have to say about NDE's ?
+~ Bright Romeo ~ The soul doesn't exist. No scientist thinks there's a soul in the human body.
~ Bright Romeo ~ (3 months ago)
+Professional Meme Enthusiast 1 Hallucinations don't happen in groups buddy. Nor it provides secret information. Secondly, 9 out of 10 patients give very similar descriptions of what they experienced when they were clinically dead for a certain amount of time. There are many cases where it clearly shows that those experiences are a lot more than simple neurological reactions inside the human brain. Some patients come back with messages from their dead relatives that only those could have knows. Research Astroprojection. That is very real too. Many people make the mistake and only believe in what is scientifically proven. That is a very minimalistic way of thinking. Not everything can be proven in a lab. Believing only in what is scientifically proven is just as primitive as believing in only what you can touch, smell, etc. That's not intelligent. It's closed minded and it limits your perception. Let me ask you this. Even the Egyptians knew that we as humans, we posses a soul. They also knew where it is located inside the human body. Something that today's scientists agree with. Where do you believe that your soul goes after you die ? And please don't give me any of that nothingness none sense.

You can tell Ricky loathes these two and their fakeness
Olaf Kristiansen (3 months ago)
I don't think so at all, I think you may be projecting. He seems to be having a good time. I love that Ricky goes on these sort of silly shows, but is perfectly nice and pleasant, and has a laugh.

yeah he even visually sending out: I don't belong here. 😁

I agree. Ricky has always thrived on awkwardness but this kind of television is really awkward and hard to watch. Ricky still handles it well.

Love Ricky but as fellow Brit living in North America - can't help but wonder how long it'll be - until he's offended someone and get's fired .
hairycanarythethird (3 months ago)
or fired at.

It’s interesting to see how almost everyone is commenting how Karl was not mentioned. I guess the rumors are true, Ricky and Karl aren’t mates anymore, sad to see this

You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

+William Price It looks like you're right. I could have sworn I first heard the quote many years ago (80's) in relation to the problem of being a rebel but an internet check dates it back to the film in 2008. Funny how memory plays tricks on you. I'd have bet my life on the quote dating back to at least the 60's.
William Price (6 days ago)
+Independent Rider the quote was from the dark Knight
William Price (6 days ago)
+Independent Rider no it's not lol the original quote didn't have young in it and never has
Independent Rider (6 days ago)
+William Price Yes it is. The quote is a play on age: young and impulsive (rebellious/stupid) = HERO, old and wise (conformist/fearful) = VILLIAN. The quotes an observation on how we ALL go from being hero to villain as our attitudes transform during young to old. If you want an example, look at Madonna! Although 'young' is the most important part of the quote it unfortunately gets overlooked today by everyone re/posting it.
William Price (6 days ago)
+Independent Rider that's not part of the quote
