Recensieoverzicht: ‘energetic’ Ricky Gervais ‘has not forgotten’

The British comedian Ricky Gervais (56) gave Friday a gig in AFAS Live. Reviewers are positive about the Humanity, the fifth comedyshow of The Office actor.

De Volkskrant: four stars

“Humanity, his fifth standup comedyshow, is a finely polished, very witty performance in which the original reasoning and sharp jokes on each other back tumbling in a tight one and a half hours. With its blissful British diction considers Gervais therein the whole of humanity, he shares right at the beginning that he is not such a big fan of that humanity. He actually does more of the dogs.”

The Telegraph gives no stars

“After seven years is Gervais, who, in 2001, the international broke with the by him written and played tv comedy The Office, as a comedian live on stage. And he seems not to have been forgotten. His program is cleverly put together, is layered, sharp and at times downright hilarious. Between the nose and lips, he grabs the big themes in the kloten, but also the personal will not out of the way. He explains why he does not have children, and that with advancing Years the testicles of a are living separate lives.”

The Post Online – give no stars

“His energy leaps off the stage, the jokes are touch and the audience smult of Gervais’ stories about the news, celebrities if Caitlyn Jenner and the endless minute jokes about them be poured out. The pace is from the early high and it seems Gervais quite a bit on other greats like Louis CK, who is incidentally also from the cask “observed comedy” taps. (…) Once in a while, he seems to have a kind of uitstelzin to use (“you know…what I’m saying is…”) because he’s very little wire is lost. That in itself is not bad, but again, sometimes the pace of his story and sometimes he will just come back at the beginning of his story because he is apparently a trip has made that not at all in the planning.”
