Ricky Gervais at the Kodak Theater

Nothing was taboo for Ricky Gervais last night - the holocaust, AIDS, cancer, obesity and it was all hilarious. Having fallen asleep during the rather dull Christmas special of Extras a couple of weeks ago I wasn't sure what to expect but I was laughing from start to finish...

My favorite parts were 'Sharks vs Nazis' - a comparison caused by watching too much Discovery Channel which asks why the Nazis couldn't find Anne Frank... (her book was OK but ended a bit abruptly and there was no sequel...) and 'Humpty Dumpty' where Gervais tries to find the moral behind the nursery rhyme (if you're an egg don't sit on a wall? Don't send horses to perform medical procedures?)

Great fun!
