  • Episode 55 - Ricky chats with Stephen Knight and Andrew Doyle
    The 55th episode of Ricky's radio show on Sirius XM.
    Ricky Gervais is Deadly Sirius: Ricky with comedian chums and eminent guests discussing the big issues. Entertaining, thought-provoking, and often taboo-crunching chat about ethics, science and art; interspersed with utter bollocks and the greatest songs of all time.

    I think Ricky is great, easily my favourite comedian and I agree on most things he talks about and his point of view, I find them incredibly interesting, but it does get a little boring hearing the same conversation and almost literally the same words to the letter again and again and again

    • TommyCooper'sMagicCarpetWeaver

      Personally I think Ricky should completely disappear from public view for a year or so. Especially disconnect from Twitter!
      I used to think he was funny with a good attitude, but recently it seems he's believing his own hype too much and it's changed him into another of those annoying celebs who think they're bloody gurus who are going to enlighten us all on the errors of our ways, with less and less in the way of laughs. Still, I suppose when you're doing something just for £££s and/or $$$s this is what happens.
      Ricky should have a long look in the mirror & have a word with himself, ask himself why he's let his EGO get so inflated, grow a big beard , invest in a pair of dark glasses and mysteriously vanish for a while, then come back refreshed and energised , glad that that smug git from those awful DeadlySirius borefests is gone!

      It’s really bizarre. Like, if he was having these conversations with different people behind closed doors, then it would make sense. He knows he can make a good point with one quote or get a laugh with another, that’s how you might make friends in the real world. But when there is an audience listening each time, it’s incredibly odd to keep using the exact same lines of conversation. Like, the *exact same* lines.

    Talking about equality and freedom of speech as usual I listen to Ricky gervais for a laugh not to find out what’s right and wrong especially when he’s said it all before

    • Jack Curley
      Jack Curley 2 years ago +3

      TommyCoopersMagicCarpetWeaver. Yes of course I’ve learned loads from Ricky it’s just he’s never went on about the same thing for so long like all the listeners have got to have got it by now . It’s the only time I’ve ever been disappointed listening to anything Ricky has done and it’s just because the last few episodes have jus been about the same thing he jus needs to get Diane and Robyn ince back

    I'm one of those that got dragged into all the twitter BS. It can really consume you if you try to put a troll in their place and it will steal your mojo and sap your goodness, just not worth going there.
    I'm still dealing with them and it's my own fault for falling into their trap.
    Live and learn.
    Sometimes i feel a right twit when listening to you all talking about twitter politics, many of us have found ourselves to various degrees sucked into it all. It affects many more of us than will care to admit.
    Very mature, wholesome and theraputic podcast all this, for my personal journey also. Thanks lads really appreciate it.

    • Retrosta

      ​@Nixer Doyle I agree. I still enjoy him in small doses, and he can occasionally be funny and mildly insightful. But there's something so... smug and self-congratulatory about work like Special Correspondents and Life on the Road, and they lack the heart his work with Merchant had. He needs a big personality alongside him when he's doing podcasts, otherwise, he takes one subject and hammers it into the ground.

    • Nixer Doyle

      @Mp gmail You know things are grim when someone called Paul the Party Animal Parker is not happy. I'm guessing that there is a solid contingent of _former_ Gervais fans who, for any number of reasons, now find him very hard to take.
      I listened to maybe 30 mins of the first "Deadly Sirius" show before tapping out. I'd been an avid fan for several years going back to The Office, but somewhere along the way, around 2016, it ended. I can point to a few specific things, but there's nothing to be achieved by outlining them here.
      It's funny, through XFM and podcasts, Ricky was quite vocal in his hatred for puns. Now the title of his show _is_ a pun.

    You’ve really got to stop telling the same anecdotes on the same platform Ricky.
    Fair enough if you do one on here, the same one on graham Norton and then again on Jimmy kimmel. That makes sense. But to do the same anecdotes every week on the same podcast. Come on...

    • #skillsets

      He’s a comedian, and he’s on the receiving end of this ALL THE TIME. It would be difficult for him to talk about anything else because it effects every minute of his life/reality. He clearly finds it ridiculous and feels like he needs to speak out against it again and again until it starts to go away

      @It's just myself, so it is. yea but so many people are weak that they will stop using it because a few say they are bad if they use it.
      Do you know what everyone is meant to use as an OK signal instead cause I haven't seen what's been put forward.

      @experiment54 I didn't / don't. I'm just saying, some of the far right took it seriously themselves and bought into it to the point of a racist mass murderer throwing up OK signs whilst under arrest. I'm not goin to stop using it because I know its just a phase like all the other internet shite. When did you last hear about 'Kekistan' or hear someone get called a "cuck"? 5 years from now this 'OK sign thing will be long forgotten.

    That joke Ricky seems so proud of "why did the chicken cross the road - ey fuck you dude my chicken died today". Could be the worst joke I've ever heard. Why is he saying dude?
