In honor of Ricky Gervais's scathing, brilliant performance at this year's Golden Globes this weekend, someone needed to make a list to prove that 1. he's always insulting, yet always intelligent at the same time and 2. if the Hollywood Foreign Press was expecting anything different than what he's done with the majority of his body of work (The Office reinvented uncomfortable comedy and made it into an artform, these videos are all extremely offensive to most of America), then they need a better hiring department.
Ricky Gervais is one of the funniest people in the world, so here are clips of him tackling truly offensive material in such an artful way, that what he did at the Golden Globes not only makes sense, but was absolutely hilarious. Clearly this list is the work of one of the best stand-up comedians ever rocking the Golden Globes.
Ricky Gervais on Obesity and Its Victimlessness
When he's not making fun of millionaires (keep in mind, most people who were in that room are multi-millionaires,) he's actually tackling quite a few issues that actually matter and that actually shouldn't be made fun of. These are a little more faux pas to make fun of than people who are lampooned on television, film and radio every single day.Here's Ricky Gervais on some wonderfully offensive issues:
