    Gervais IS Hollywood.

    He's just talking shit with his friends. This isn't some epic takedown.

    Ricky Gervais, worth 130 million, takes down Hollywood elite Joe Pesci who is worth *checks notes* a third of that

    he is kinda more British and made it in hollywood, has a lot of money so flys around and stays at expensive hotels, he is just being honest they are all pos and he made money being funny in it, but gotta appreciate the honesty, if nothing else it might wake up some sheep when its all over social media, his show afterlife on netflix i thought was good

    If you think Ricky is genuinely contemptuous of the people in that room, then I've got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

    ive heard him for hours years and years ago on the radio on the Opie and Anthony show where he would be a guest a bunch of times when he was just a comedian hanging out with patrice o neal, bill burr, jimmy norton, rich vos, and the dude is not fake, just a guy from england that made it in show business

    he does it for personal gain of course.

    He’s a comedian. It’s an act. He’s pushing boundaries for shock value.

    Truth is shock value? Yeah I know the point of comedy is to somewhat subvert expectation. But when all other speeches given at events like this is so bland, preachy, and virtue-signaling, anything that deviates from it just seems genuine.

    He's just doing his own virtue signaling. And again, he is amongst friends.

    If this exact speech had been delivered by a random stand up comedian from bumfuckville alabama or something, yes. its brutal. But this is a dude worth more than half the people in the room acting like he's punching up at elites.

    "Gervais initially worked in the music industry, attempting a career as a pop star in the 1980s as the singer of the new-wave act Seona Dancing and working as the manager of the then unknown band Suede before turning to comedy."

    Lol, hes probably so bithcy because of his fucking shit music career if u can even call it that.

    The only thing hes really good for is the office.

    otherwise hes overrated, hyped on himself and has a gay little music career, dancing for a new wave band.

    Look into this guy a little, he mad be a little clever and funny but in that bitchy complainy british ways. Carlin in his prime would of found some dope angle to shit on him.
