Ricky Gervais is at it again with the stand-up specials. He just announced his second special for HBO will make its debut on Saturday, December 18th at 10pm.
Ricky Gervais: Out of England 2 (clever name there Richard) was filmed live at the Chicago Theatre just this past October and is said to include more of the comedian’s left of center, politically incorrect insight on topics such as religion, drugs, the economy, and animal homosexuality?
There’s a new animated comedy series that’s going to hit the TV screens this January. It’s called Bob’s Burgers and stars a few heavy hitters in the comedy world, Eugene Mirman, Kristen Schaal, and H. Jon Benjamin. All of which portray a family that runs a burger shop.
