What I've Done
BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning mockumentary exposing life in the white-collar world. Remade all over the world, including America, where it ran for 9 seasons.
Another Golden Globe-winning sitcom about background artists, with sideswipes at show business and celebrity, plus a raft of star cameos. I play a hopeless talent agent who works part-time at Carphone Warehouse.
Feel-good film about three young mates drifting through life fighting, drinking and chasing girls. Great cast (including Ralph Fiennes and Felicity Jones) and killer soundtrack (starts with Elton John, ends with Led Zeppelin. I mean, come on…).
The Ricky Gervais Show
Animated version of the record-breaking podcasts recorded by myself, Ricky and “shaved monkey” Karl Pilkington.
An Idiot Abroad
Smash-hit travelogue following Karl Pilkington as we send him on foreign adventures. I want to broaden his mind. Ricky just wants to annoy him.
Life's Too Short
Sitcom centered on actor Warwick Davis, playing a twisted version of himslf, as he attempts to resuccitate his career. Includes a stand-out appearance by aspiring stand-up Liam Neeson.
Hello Ladies - Stand Up Show
I toured my first full stand-up show across the UK, including 10 nights at the famous Hammersmith Apollo. Then onto America, Australia, New Zealand and Scandinavia.
Hello Ladies - Sitcom
Sitcom I co-created for HBO, based on my stand-up act, following the misadventures of would-be ladies man Stuart in the cut-throat world of LA dating.
