First Trailer for Ricky Gervais’ Netflix Comedy Special Reveals His ‘Humanity’
It’s incredibly hard to make effective trailers from stand-up specials, because most comedians build their jokes up and layer them over time, so getting just snippets of punchlines doesn’t really show us much. I’ll reserve my judgement for the final product, but I’m hoping for something as fun as 2007’s Fame. Or, you know, just a full podcast reunion with Gervais’ Office co-creator Stephen Merchant and their former producer (“I say producer … more like a shaved chimp”) Karl Pilkington. One can dream!
In the meantime, check out the first trailer for Humanity below:
Ricky Gervais: Humanity premieres globally Tuesday, March 13th on Netflix. Here’s the official synopsis:
Filmed at the Apollo Hammersmith in London, the Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning British comedian returns to the stage in London with a scathing special that touches on aging, becoming spoiled, his perspective on having kids and more.
