Ricky Gervais is hilarious

I’ve never been a fan of “Inside the Actor’s Studio“, which is usually just a long, sycophantic affair with no point. Lipton is your classic spineless fan who can’t seem to ask any interesting personal questions. There are some guests, however, who can’t help but be interesting despite Lipton’s softball questions. Ricky is one of those guys.

    Damn. That is one Actor’s Studio I would loved to have seen.

    It’s funny when James Lipton interviews British actors on the show. They always look at him like he’s a complete anus.

    I love that guy.

    I think you’re sort of missing the point of the show, though. It’s not People magazine. It’s a class for would-be actors. Thus “Actors’ Studio.”

    From the website: “Each episode is taped at Pace University’s Michael Schmmel Center of the Arts before an audience that includes the students of the Actors Studio Drama School of Pace University (www.Pace.edu/actorsstudiomfa) for whom it is a class in their three-year Masters Degree program.”

    The best ITAS is Dave Chappelle’s episode. Brilliant, funny, all-around great.

    For people who aren’t familiar with Gervais and Merchant’s radio shows from back in the day (featuring the amazing Karl Pilkington) you can stream it all, or at least most of it, from pilkipedia.co.uk/pilkifm/
    Some hilarious stuff there.
