Like most of the unfavourable reviews I've read here, I'm also speaking as a genuine Gervais/Merchant/Pilkington fan. However I'm not such a fanatic that I'll just laugh at anything because it's Ricky saying it.
This was woeful stuff. While large parts of 'Animals' and 'Politics' had me in stitches and left me with watery eyes and snot running out of my nose, the best I could say for this is that I smiled a few times.
It was already going badly downhill with 'Fame', but now I'm actually embarrassed on Ricky's behalf. He's turned into David Brent welcoming the Swindon lot by trying to be funny, and just making a complete prat of himself in the process. He now comes across as a multi, multi, multi, multi millionaire who simply doesn't care enough any more since he doesn't need the money and he knows people will come to his gigs anyway because he's been on the telly and in movies a lot.
Where before his routines were always un-PC and a bit shocking - but also very clever and funny, now he seems to be simply going for pure shock value. I'm sure you'll think of the line about drink driving and the granny (a gag lifted almost verbatim from one of the Derek and Clive albums BTW) He's now trying to be a cross between a shock comedian and a clever one who analyses his own show, but rather than taking the best from both genres he's taking the worse of both, and you end with with poorly constructed sick jokes done for their own sake, and then a little knowing nod and wink as if that's somehow supposed to make it hilarious. All the cleverness is gone, and with it the humour.

This is the last in a quartet of Ricky Gervais live shows, and it's not quite as strong as the other three. The show is still blessed with Ricky's trademark scathing observational humour, and cutting delivery, but it's far less imaginative and funny than his other shows, such as Animals or Fame.
In order of hilarity, I'd rank Animals first, Fame a very close second, Politics a distant third, and this one wins the wooden spoon. He starts with a routine about the recession, which is perhaps a bit dated now. He then does a very lengthy and acerbic discourse about obesity (which he's done in other live shows), and has quite a harsh go at Susan Boyle (which I found somewhat distasteful). He subsequently moves onto a lengthy diatribe about the Bible and God, with a heavy focus on Noah's Ark, a routine which, sadly, I found both contrived and simply unfunny.
Other reviewers have lambasted this show as flogging a dead horse, and I can understand their point of view. The segments on weight issues and religion are re-booted from his earlier live shows, and bring nothing new to the table. He also relies far more heavily on very crude sexual gags, and profanity, than he normally does, which is a tactic some comics resort to when their material is old and tired.
Having laughed out loud a lot, whilst watching Ricky's Animals and Fame shows, this performance came as quite a disappointment. I'd award the show 2.5 stars if I could - 2 stars seems a little harsh, whilst 3 stars is being kindly.
Thank you for reading this review.

That's about all I came away with in this totally laughter-free rant from Ricky Gervais. I used to be a big fan but this is about as funny as some drunken old fool down my local pub. In fact all it really did for me was reveal that Gervais is really not a very nice person at all.

Oh we've all heard him talk about how brilliant he is, and this was all said as part of a joke. And yes I used to laugh. Now though I'm starting to realise that this "parody" of being arrogant is really just an outlet for his real deap-seated arrogance. But if you want to fork out your hard-earned cash on a DVD telling you how brilliant and loaded the comedian is then knock yourself out.

And as to Susan Boyle. Of all the talentless Z-list celebrities out there why have a go at someone who can at least sing? And why pick on her because of her looks? This is where Gervais reveals his hypocrisy. He believes it's all right for us to make fun of fat people because "they did it to themselves" but wrong to make fun of gays because they were born that way. It's all down to choice according to Gervais. So what "choice" did Susan Boyle have? Did she choose to be a "mong" as Gervais describes her? And is it really acceptible for anyone, comedian or otherwise, to make fun of someone based on how they look? Personally I don't think it is.

But worse than that, far worse, Gervais commits the biggest sin of all in this DVD, the sin of being totally unfunny.
