Ricky Gervais

The actor talks Netflix and his career

Watch Ricky Gervais, the BAFTA, Golden Globe and Emmy award–winning comedian, actor, director and writer, in conversation with Philip Galanes, who writes The New York Times’ hilarious weekly column “Social Q’s,” which answers reader questions about the sticky situations they face in every corner of modern life. The duo will discuss Gervais’ prolific and diverse career as well as his Netflix film “David Brent: Life on the Road”. The film is a mockumentary that follows Brent, who hasn’t given up his dream of becoming a rock star 12 years after the final episode of “The Office.” As he assembles a group of mercenary session musicians, a talented sidekick for street cred and an overpriced yet underwhelmed tour manager, he embarks upon a self–financed UK tour coming to a venue near every major city near you. Don’t miss Galanes grilling Gervais on returning to his rock star roots.
