AwardsWatch: Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me. Ricky Gervais shot exclusively for Deadline in London. It’s not real! How can it be offensive? We’re all restricted, and we all say things we wish we hadn’t, and we feel stupid and wish we’d done something, and we feel weak, so I thought that would be great to watch.  On 5 July 2018, it was announced that Penelope Wilton, David Bradley, Ashley Jensen, Tom Basden, Tony Way, David Earl, Joe Wilkinson, Kerry Godliman, Mandeep Dhillon, Jo Hartley, Roisin Conaty, and Diane Morgan had joined the cast. They know there’s much more chance of happily ever after than somebody who someone bumps into and hates for most of the movie. Off stage, this Billy Wilder-loving animal rights advocate has an optimistic soul…. Because depression doesn’t just end. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has an overall approval rating of 74% with an average score of 6.29/10 based on 44 reviews. Imagine if no one complained; that would mean no one is watching. Interview: Ricky Gervais (‘After Life’) digs deep about grief, honesty and Hollywood hypocrisy. It’s an amazing reaction, and I love that people are loving it. © AwardsWatch 2013-2020 All rights reserved. I guess so, in the sense that I’m trying to make it honest and raw as I can.
I put it in After Life, where people would rather be known for being sh*t than not known at all, because they started getting rewarded for it. I don’t know if it’s the funniest thing I’ve done, but it’s certainly the most honest and emotional. Religion says, “Oh, you love God, do you? It came from me thinking, when my mum was dying, that if she’d have asked me whether there was a heaven, I’d have lied for her and told her yes, because there’s no point not to. And then the next thing I had to think of was, well, what’s losing everything? He knows it’s not like Lisa, it’s the natural order of things. That sort of brand of comedy is about getting people to laugh at the wrong thing because they know what the right thing is. Everyone said, “Oh, he had a go at the Hollywood Foreign Press!” Well, of course I did [laughs].
It says, well, what are you going to do, that’s what we’re like, get over it. And so it was his life partner, and that’s why I made their marriage so fun. It’s mad for either side to try and restrict free speech. I hate it when people say, “That joke was offensive,” when they really mean they found it offensive.
He put everything into, he didn’t want a promotion, he just wanted to get back to spend all this time with her and I made her his rock.
At every turn, he has faced criticism from the politically correct and easily offended, and faced it head on. There’s always an ending. Grieving over another loss, Tony asks his friends and co-workers for space, not sympathy.
Well, it’s the same when I say the things I say on stage, particularly with irony. It’s as simple as that. You go out into the real world, it’s fine!
I have a spring in my step as I skip towards writing series 2.pic.twitter.com/AUxYoZSMWm", "Ricky Gervais Strikes Overall Deal With Netflix As 'After Life' Comes Back For Season 3", "Ricky Gervais Inks Netflix Overall Deal; 'After Life' Renewed for Season 3 (Exclusive)", "Where is After Life filmed? Tony hires "Roxy" to complete a task. He threatens Robbie with a hammer. That’s so lovely as well. It’s moreish, yeah… But in the press, on both sides of the Atlantic, you’re often painted as a provocateur and a controversialist; more like Tony at the start of the show. We expect actors and actresses to be narcissistic and pretentious. Thomas Bastable as Robbie, a classmate of George's, Ethan Lawrence as James, June's son who starts working at the, Anti as Brandy, Tony's and Lisa's dog, Tony's best friend and reason to keep living, This page was last edited on 15 October 2020, at 14:48. No one cares. If everyone died peacefully in their sleep there would be no sadness, no angst, no guilt, no terror. [laughs] They’ve got their own lives and they are walking their dogs and they’re going home and they’re making tea and they watching telly. So that’s Season 2. Is good conversation a lost art? It’s not that it’s braver, it’s that he doesn’t care anymore. I’m the court jester, they’re the king. I’m big on forgiveness.
I think people think that because everything now is about identity politics and we fall into tribes. It’s a really odd, confused thing to argue. The fact that I’m one of them should be irrelevant, because they can get that I shouldn’t have been there.
Right? But people fall to the hype. Ricky Gervais interview: 'I'm speaking up for the millions without power' As his sitcom After Life returns, the comedian tells us about the licence fee and celebrity hypocrites  On 6 May 2020, the program was renewed for a third season, the first time a series created by Gervais had been extended beyond two seasons. And the relationship with Lisa is so wonderful, but on the flip side the relationship with his father is so complicated and yet it is just as genuine and just as loving. I don’t think you’ve ever really lost like that, you’ve never lost a partner, and you’ve been partnered for over 30 years, did you sort of imagine what it would be like if you lost Jane?
Some people are offended by equality. He’s frustrated with his dad, and he feels guilty about that because he knows it’s not his fault.
These are the most privileged, secure celebrities in the world and what do I do? It becomes a cliffhanger. And then, when someone pops their head up and says something bizarre, I think of that person as living in a bin and shouting at people as they move past. And that’s been reduced so much to sound bites on vox pop, on Twitter, there’s no room for nuance. But I think, again, there’s a ying and yang to it, because people will step up to the plate. And they’re all coming back. Right, but I’ve never been one to have it all end, “And they all lived happily ever after…” That’s why I would never end a movie with a kiss. If I find out they are just as bad and they don’t really mean it, then I’m annoyed!
It’s the promise of that everlasting life. With a second series, you know who you’re writing for. I think I’ve also got the best cast of any comedy/drama in history. I sound like a Christian when I go on about it—which culturally, I guess, I am—but I’m all for forgiveness. After Life is a British black comedy-drama streaming television series created, written, produced and directed by Ricky Gervais, who is also the star. Drama isn’t just knowing the result, it’s the journey.
So success is still a driving force, because you want to get paid to do it again. We got it in there a bit… Well, let me ask you this: you seem like you’re on a tear with the show right now. [laughs] How can they be the same species?
