Summary

Ricky Gervais' third live show, Fame, is the fastest-selling comedy tour in British history. With multiple sell-out shows around Britain and nearly half a million tickets sold, the success of Fame eclipses even his previous two stand-up shows: Politics and Animals.

Writer, director, and star of The Office and Extras, progenitor of the most downloaded series of podcasts ever, and award-winning author of four volumes of Flanimals, Ricky Gervais is uniquely placed to apply his prodigious comedic talents to the world of celebrity. In this special, recorded at London's Hammersmith Apollo, Ricky delivers hilarious and insightful observations on the nature of fame, and in the process displays his talent as Britain's foremost comedian to the fullest extent yet.

Alone but just as funny!

I bought this as I am a big fan of Ricky, Steve and Karl's podcast but I wasn't sure if I would enjoy Ricky on his own doing stand up. I needn't have worried he was fab. His humour is always close to the bone but never cruel. I really enjoyed it.

Not for audio

Great performance and gags. There are many visual gags though so not great for audio.

a few visuals missing

Great performance but missing a few visuals (I assume Ricky is pulling expressions on stage where he goes silent and the audience laughs) but all in all very funny! laugh out loud material!
