Ricky Gervais dissects fame and celebrity - VIDEO

Ricky GervaisI've only seen two episodes of Extras, the HBO comedy starring Ricky Gervais. The show just ended, but not before Gervais got in a scathing monologue about how celebrities act and why the public is wrong to idolize them. It's December 20 and I thought I already had all of my favorite TV moments of 2007, but this one makes it just under the wire.

The show has always been listed as a "comedy," but there's a lot of serious, painful truth in the show too, as illustrated in what Gervais has to say during an appearance on a reality show within the show. This isn't just the Andy Millman character talking, it's Gervais himself. You'll nod your head in agreement, and maybe even cringe a little bit. What a way to end the series.

I thought that special epidoe was fantastic and I would recommend people who want to know more about Ricky Gervais's opinions check out his stand-up performances. The lastest one was titled 'Fame'.

I just watched the finale last night, was surprised how serious it got in the last hour an i was wondering ow much of this was ricky really talking about himself since most of what he says seems like it might relate right back to him, makes me wonder what he is like in person.
