    Best thing to do to stop people showing you their kid photos: Just look and say "Can I get a copy of that"?
    They won't show you any more.

    Love his visuals, that bit where he discards the body that doesn't match the photo, great touch

      MikeT he’s always been good at those little touches. Like when he played an elephant in Animals.

      It's fake comedy! The laughter is pure canned. Can you not recognise it?

    All the people on here saying he stole this from Karl Pilkington are delusional. None of what he says here in terms of the structure of the joke, the wording, delivery etc remotely resembles anything Karl ever said - the similarity starts and ends with the fact they both don’t like looking at photos of kids. Who does? It’s like saying that because Gervais once did some jokes about religion, any comedian that ever jokes about religion in the future will automatically be ripping him off, regardless of the joke. It makes no sense!

      @Clay James And merchant...people always fucking forget steve.

    • Miscellaneous
      Miscellaneous 3 years ago

      What a load of bullshit...
      Similar concepts of comedy do not constitute as “stolen”
      Otherwise, majority of what comedians say are not original and are all rehashed...

    • Ministry of Drinks

      yes also I'm sure ricky owns the intellectual property of everything karl pilkington said

      GBHanny8 I’ve listened to all the old XFM shows. Multiple times. This routine wasn’t stolen.

    • Paddy .Cook
      Paddy .Cook 3 years ago +1

      I know what you mean, I started listening to the old xfm shows a few years ago, and was amazed at how much I recognised from his stand-up.
      Some bits, like the 'goats for Africans donation' were more or less verbatim KP observations, and others, such as 'Humpty Dumpty' were based on conversations where either Steve or Karl contributed a large proportion of the funny lines.
      It wouldn't be so bad if he credited them with providing material, but he seems to have gone in completely the opposite direction.
      At his talk at the Oxford Union, he referred to "when *I* wrote 'The Office'", effectively removing Smerch from consideration.

    Ricky... Watching your Humanity show on Netflix actually hurting me physically. How!? you might ask. I'm at home recovering after a hernia surgery on my abdominal muscles, so it hurts a lot as soon as I start laughing. My favorite part starts 26 minutes in, from the "Three reasons why I don't want to get my own kids" routine, reason number three! You even start laughing a little yourself when you are visualizing how funny your acting must be looking for the audience, haha. Brilliant! Watched it over and over again. It's worth the pain. :D Greetings from Sweden

    The joke I did the most laughing at was the analogy he used where he says 'thats like walking into a town square, seeing a notice on a notice board for guitar lessons and then saying BUT I DON'T FUCKIN WANT GUITAR LESSONS'.

    I wanted to go to the San Francisco venue but the CHEAPEST seats were $100, which is RIDICULOUS and ASININE. (and more than a little bit SAD)
    But that's why he's worth $90 million.
    So it's Netflix for me, as usual, and everyone else who can't afford to spend a few hundred dollars+ on ONE night's entertainment.

    He's definitely completely verging into the "lazy fat old f*ck" genre of comedy, which is almost entirely comprised by him and Patton Oswalt, and which is characterized by tired, self-indulgent talking with a strong focus on gross bodily details. (Women usually excel at the latter, however that is another topic and baffling in and of itself.)

    it's really sad of how even most of the people commenting here still don't get it (oblivious), nor understand that this is not just simply a mere only joke or stand-up comedy; but more importantly, Ricky is actually telling the deeper truth & reality that sadly only very FEW smart (& real brutally honest) people will understand & admit everything that he said.

    • G J
      G J 3 years ago

      He thinks that you need to be intelligent to understand it because his standard for intelligence is very low. He doesn't understand that not everyone is as thick as him, his family and/or mates.

    • russellpushon
      russellpushon 3 years ago +1

      its pretentious because its suggests your part of some special elite that truly understands the underlying points and relevant contexts of his stand up when a lot of his fans actually do

    I'm twenty two minutes in, and every bit so far, is material from their xfm show. I finished, its just xfm jokes (nme, bbc2, podcasts), I feel vindicated.

      David Sutton 4 years ago

      Isn't that how comedy is developed? Someone saying they don't like looking at their sisters kids is not especially funny. That's the bit Gervais added. All you are saying is that he developed comedy from a situation that was not inherently comical. that is what is called being a comedian. I'm puzzled you struggle so much with very basic concepts.
