Reading’s finest export, Ricky Gervais, has worked as a promoter, a DJ for a London radio station and managed rock group Suede but is best known as the creator of one of our generation’s greatest ever comedy characters, David Brent in The Office. What he did next was to write and perform his first ever stand up comedy show, and for the many fans who weren’t able to catch it live, the hilarious Animals will be released on VHS and DVD by Vision Video Limited on 17th November 2003.

Filmed earlier this year during a limited run at The Bloomsbury Theatre in London, the show is based around Ricky’s fascination with the animal kingdom (including that curious species, the human being) and covers subjects as diverse as classifying bats, gay animals and the Great War poets.

From the moment the curtain goes up it becomes clear that David Attenborough has nothing to worry about as Gervais accompanies a short film on animal copulation with a unique and not entirely scientific narration! Fans will wonder if any subject is taboo as the comedy drifts from his interpretation of the bible (including what really went on in the Garden of Eden) to parts of the animal kingdom that the BBC never dared to cover.
Keeping his live audience in fits throughout the show, Animals is the freshest and funniest stand-up from the country’s finest comedian. The DVD includes an exclusive behind the scenes look at the making of Animals plus a commentary from Ricky Gervais.

Release Date: 17th November 2003
Running time: 1 hr 39 mins
Certificate: 18
