Quite possibly the funniest man alive.

 

His stand-up had me in stitches.

 

The Office and Extras are brilliant. The Daniel Radcliffe Extras episode is a personal favorite.

 

Here are some youtube links that I think you guys might enjoy.

 

His latest stand-up show... FAME:

hahaha some fav. quotes from IMBD:

 

[Andy has come to see Patrick Stewart in his trailer]

Patrick Stewart: I'm writing a screenplay and I find the whole process absolutely exhilarating.

 

Andy Millman: What's yours about, if you don't mind my asking?

 

Patrick Stewart: Well, uh - how best to explain it; you've seen me in "X-Men" ...

 

Andy Millman: Yeah.

 

Patrick Stewart: The character I am, Professor Charles Xavier, if you remember, he can control things with the power of his mind - can make people do things and see things, so I thought, what if you could do that for real? I mean, not in a comic book world, but in the real world.

 

Andy Millman: Oh, all right.

 

Patrick Stewart: So in my film, I play a man who controls the world with his mind.

 

Andy Millman: Right. Oh, that's interesting.

 

Patrick Stewart: Yeah. For instance, I'm walking along, and I see this beautiful girl, and I think I'd like to see her naked, and so all her clothes fall off.

 

Andy Millman: All her - clothes fall off?

 

Patrick Stewart: Yes, and she's scrabbling around to get them back on again, but even before she can get her knickers on, I've seen everything. Yeah. I've seen it all.

 

Andy Millman: [pause] Okay. It's a comedy, is it?

 

Patrick Stewart: No. It's about what would happen, you know, if these things were possible.

 

Andy Millman: What's the story, though, what's the ...

 

Patrick Stewart: Well, I do other stuff; like I'm riding my bike in the park, and this policewoman says "Oi! You can't ride your bike on the grass!" and I go "Oh no?" And her uniform falls off, and she goes "Ahh!" and she's trying to cover up, but I've seen everything anyway. And I get on my bike and I ride off. On the grass.

 

Andy Millman: [increasingly uncomfortable] So it's mainly you sort of go around seeing ladies' tits?

 

Patrick Stewart: Mainly.

 

--------------------------------------------------

 

Patrick Stewart: And I do other stuff, like I go to the World Cup final, and it's Germany versus England, and I wish that I were playing, and suddenly I am, and I score the winning goal, and they carry me into the dressing room and there's Roony and Beckham and then Posh Spice walks in and ...

 

Andy Millman: Her clothes fall off?

 

Patrick Stewart: Instantly.

 

Andy Millman: Sure.

 

Patrick Stewart: And she doesn't know what's happening, but I've ...

 

Patrick Stewart, Andy Millman: [in unison] seen everything.

 

Andy Millman: [pause] Good. Is there a narrative at all, is there like a story in the film, or is it just ...

 

Patrick Stewart: Well, I'm a sort of a James Bond figure ...

 

Andy Millman: Right.

 

Patrick Stewart: And I have to go to Iraq, to rescue these hostages. And I get there and I rescue them, but they're all women and they're naked because their clothes have rotted off. But I get them into the helicopter, and I'm flying the helicopter, but I can still sneak a look in the mirror and I can see everything, you know. One of them's bending over, two of them are kissing ...

 

Andy Millman: They've turned lesbian.

 

Patrick Stewart: Yeah, because they've been in the camp for so long.

 

Andy Millman: Can happen. Well, look, good luck with that. I've just written a sitcom, but I wonder if you could give it to anyone you know, you know, in film or TV ...

 

Patrick Stewart: Is there any nudity in it?

 

--------------------------------------------------------------

 

Also if anyone is interested he makes fun of creationists / christianity.

 

Here's the link:

To be honest, I find him an annoying little twat, puffed up with his own self importance.

 

Perhaps I just don't get his brand of humour...

Fair call. He is quite up himself but that's what makes it funny... for me at least.

 

Glad I could provide a laugh :D

Wonderful stuff. This is Gervais at his best. I saw one of his charity gigs on the gogglebox and the material in it was not as good as his FAME shows. In fact, I was disappointed at the weakness of his material in his charity show. He must save the best for his commericially sound gigs because these had the superb timing and genuinely good gags (with a few politically incorrect jokes about cancer patients).

Have you seen his other stand-up acts as well? Both on youtube. One is called "Politics" and the other is called "Animals". Both hilarious.

 

Haven't seen any charity gigs... I'm sort of glad after reading that. ;)

 

As for politically incorrect, I'd say about 80% of his show is. My kind of humour. :D
