Time to leave the stand up alone,

This review is from: Ricky Gervais Live IV - Science [DVD] (DVD)
I consider myself a fan of Ricky Gervais, I bought all The Office dvd's and christmas specials plus all of the Extras dvd's. I've got all his other standup's on dvd, and I even bought all the podcasts. But this one I've got to say is really disappointing, he seems to have become really lazy when it comes to stand up, just intent on trying to make people laugh through shock as opposed to actually saying something funny, it all seems old hat now. At one point he even tells a story about how he got a present for christmas which was basically someone sending a goat to Africa on his behalf, this was infact a musing by karl Pilkington on his podcast. He must realise that fans of his will also have listened to his podcast/audiobook and know he's just either stolen lines from Karl or just churned out old material. It pains me to say it but this is probably the worst standup dvd I've seen in a long time.
