Ricky Gervais Prefers New American Comedy to UK’s

Curious to hear a guy like Ricky Gervais, who has had two of his shows copied for US audiences, argue that it’s the UK which is living off of borrowed ideas from America.

Fed-up Ricky added: “I don’t watch TV comedy in the UK anymore.

“We’ve got some poor copies of Curb Your Enthusiasm, some poor copies of Entourage and some poor copies of Seinfeld.

“With a few exceptions the Americans seem to be ahead of the game.”

The comic blamed the crisis on a lack of ambition in both UK writers and our society as a whole.

He said: “In Britain, it’s like you shouldn’t put your head too high above the other poppies.

“I think it’s the way we’re brought up. Americans are told they can become the next president. English people are told, ‘It won’t happen to you’.”
