Ricky Gervais is an English comedian most famous for the UK version of "The Office". He wrote that show with a Steven Merchant, another comedian.
He had a series of podcasts a few years back in 2001-5 (I didn't know about these back then) with Merchant and another guy named Karl Pilkington.
HBO made portions of these podcasts into what looks like a Flinstone cartoon called "The Ricky Gervais Show" into a half hour series that broadcasts Friday nights. I highly recommend that you try watching one of two of them. In the show Merchant and Gervais constantly skewer Karl for his hare-brained ideas and beliefs that what Karl reads on the internet are true. The show moves very quickly and you will laugh a lot. You need to watch it at least a couple of times to get into the spirit of it.
