    He's got his actor/rapper/comedian mate, and younger brother of Zadie Smith, Doc Brown (Tyrone in Hunted, and Deon in last night's Derek) playing Dom Johnson, the 'urban act' Brent is trying to break
    from Russell Howard's Good News ...

    That was pure pure pure genius . The best bits of anything Gervais has done. Perfect comedy and will keep me in quotes ( yeah I was born in to the music business , my dad worked for our price ) for a long time.

    he was awesome last night. Equality street is excellent. I'm not one for comedy songs, but this is hilarious
    "Hey mate, let's be friends" (to 2 gay men).."we're just friends"... classic Gervais :)

    "and dwarves aint babies" - unmistakable penmanship!

    I think he's best as Brent, in the same way Coogan is best as Partridge.

    The rest of Comic Relief was a bit disappointing for me, not really many (any?) laugh-out-loud moments.

    I was not aware David Brent went away. Everything Mr Gevais does turns out like David Brent....his acting 'skills' are very limited.

    Utter nonsense. His acting as Derek is touching and funny, and the scene with his dying mother in ' The invention of Lying ' is as good a bit of acting as you will see anywhere.

    Nice to see the DM core readership posting its borderline racist comment, just to keep things in check.

    Anyway, biddly biddly bom.

    you seem to channel the Brent-isms very well, Krish :)
    when I see your little titbits (aka, quotes) in here, I am seeing what you are seeing when you think of them!
    and it makes me laugh!
    I miss Brent, need to watch The Office again.
