Ricky Gervais To Gliteraties at Golden Globe Awards: Thank Your Agent and Your God and F**k Off.

Ricky Gervais made lots of enemies among famous and powerful of show business by lecturing them on how insignificant their opinions are to the rest of the population, specifically those of us chained to reality.

On the other hand, “we the people” loved it…

USA Today described Ricky’s performance as:

Lackluster, lazy parade of jokes.

Decide for yourself. Watch the video.

If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech,” Gervais said on the ceremony aired by NBC. “You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and f**k off, OK?

From Gervais’ monologue at Golden Globe awards.

Gervais is making a killing on social media. By explaining to the lords of self-importance, that very few people give a damn about what Hollywood aristocracy believes is the proper approach to life, he became a hero to “regular” people.

As the time of this post, the video of Gervais’ speech had been viewed:

  • On YouTube by:
    10.4 million viewers. (All other clips from the event combined — a little over 5 million). Number 1 On Trending.
  • On Twitter by:
    9.6 million users. ( All other clips from the event combined — a little over 4 million)

The next day, reacting to the spectacular recognition of his performance, Ricky tweeted:

The last thought.

The funniest part about all the jokes was that he wasn’t joking. He was stating facts. One fact after another and then the reactions of all those super-important Hollywood greats to what Ricky Gervais was saying, worked amazingly as punchlines to his statements creating brutally funny jokes.

Ricky Gervais, Liberal Champagne Socialist With Brain

Everyone that’s being fired and publicly embarrassed about a misdemeanor and being called a Nazi — there are real Nazis who are getting away with it. This must be amazing for real racists to be out there, and going, “It’s all right, everyone’s a racist now, this is a great smokescreen, we’ve got people out there calling people who aren’t Nazis, Nazis. . . .
They don’t know the real Nazis from people who said the wrong thing once!” . . .
It plays into the hands of the genuinely bad people.

Ricky Gervais is
making sense with Sam Harris

Some foul language.

The first hour of a two-hour-long conversation between Sam Harris and Ricky Gervais. (You’ll have to pay a tiny amount of dollars to listen to the rest of it and many more interviews on Sam Harris’ website.) Gervais – stand-up comedian, actor, director, and screenwriter, shares his opinion on the impact of social media, the changing state of comedy, off-color jokes, political hypocrisy, Louis CK, Donald Trump, and other topics.

If you’re conservative, most of Gervais’ opinions (particularly his comments on Pres. Trump) won’t trigger any round of applause. Still, sometimes it’s good to hear the different points of view, especially when the person you’re listening to is cool, calm, and articulate.
