Editorial Reviews

PAL/Region 2 and 4. Please note that you will need an all region code player to view DVD content. It will not play on standard Region 1 US DVD players!!


Australian double DVD set featuring two different specials from Ricky Gervais, the UK comedian responsible for The Office and Extras. Animals, filmed during Gervais' first tour (after The Office wrapped up it's successful run), was filmed during a limited run at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London, the show is based around Ricky's fascination with the animal kingdom (including that curious species, the human being) and covers subjects as diverse as classifying bats, gay animals and the Great War poets. The second DVD, Politics, was tour number two, only a year later, and Ricky had come a long way. Though the title may suggest another lecture like discourse on the state of politics - particularly with the US elections not far behind us - you're looking in the wrong place for cutting political satire. It's merely an easy marquee to throw over the show, because what Gervais does best is play with subjects that are particularly politically incorrect.

This DVD set was released in the UK, it contains 2 exceptionally funny standup routines by David Brent himself RICKY GERVAIS. (THESE DISCS WILL ONLY PLAY IN REGION FREE PLAYER HERE IN THE STATES)
Animals is 78 mins of live standup some of it concerning animals, there is also a 20 + min doc on the filming of the special with STEPHEN MERCHANT interviewing Ricky, and a commmentary track.
Politics (68 mins) showcases a slighty more streamlined and hipper Ricky than Animals, and suffers lightly from this slicker RG, it is still funny as you please however. The extras on Politics are lengthier and funnier particularly the 19 min with Karl Pilkington, he is hilarious to listen to on Ricky's podcasts but even funnier to look at (him and his little freak book) Also very funny is Robin Ince and Rickys commentary track.
A nice deal for the standup/Ricky G. fan just make sure you have the means to watch it if you are on this side of the pond.

I've been a fan of Ricky Gervais ever since I saw the original Office series. His stand-up is witty, a smidge sarcastic and ever so smart! He is a very clever and funny man. In his "Animals" DVD, he breaks down the meaning of common nursery rhymes, and I laugh so hard each time, it brings me to tears! Watch these!! You'll laugh A LOT!

Just a warning to all: I love Ricky Gervais; however, the DVD does not work since it was made in the UK. Amazon or the dealer did not disclose this information at the time of my order. I have sent it back -- but I would love to see it. Why is there such poor customer service -- why not provide this information to the consumer?

I'm not sure how this product is b/c it didn't work when I received it, but I have to say I love Amazon but am very frustrated with this Marketplace seller (Caiman). They have absolutely the worst customer service I have dealt with. This DVD does not work on most US DVD players- there are region limitations. This was not mentioned anywhere (probably should be) so when I received the DVD I was extremely disappointed to find out I couldn't watch it. And I was really looking forward to it b/c I am a HUGE Ricky Gervais fan. So after complaining to Caiman, I got authorized to return it, which I did, and they did not crdt me for the $90 DVD. I can't really blame this on Amazon- I have always had great service from them. I'm just extremely disappointed and would never purchase from Caiman again.
