Episode 9 - Ricky chats to Sean McLoughlin and Simon Amstell
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.

    good interview of ricky by simon lol. i was expecting friction when I saw amstell was going to be a guest, he never suffered fools gladly but I think he successfully played ricky at his own game here, whether he heard the previous shows or just knew how Gervais is he clearly decided if rick was gona talk about himself then he'd indulge him 100 percent and he managed to get info about ricks life wed not heard before (amongst the repetition) so he really lifted the show, I hope rick has him back.

    This is cool-I am listening to this after posting on Twitter with a friend ( we both like Ricky Gervais) and issues of anxiety came up and other stiff came up. Felt a bit self-conscious. But this helped. As always, Ricky Gervais always helps. Uncanny. Also have a carpet burning story with radiator that my mum caused. It was near where my dad sat at night drinking. She put one off the pouffé ( things) over it, and though it wasn’t actually in its normal place, it was never discovered.

    Respect to you Ricky for moving towards veganism. It's a gradual progression for most people.

  • Ant B
    Ant BÅr siden

    You are really going down in a rabbit hole with an overly ethical eating mindset because so many other parts of our very existence rely on the exploitation of animals, not the least of which is the exploitation of the human animal for cheap labour... (From which we all benefit is so, so many ways...) Then, of course, you have the simple fact that whatever you have now given up, you once had to have been doing... So, essentially you are inextricably tied to the behavior which you now consider unethical. I once had a Buddhist tell me that I, and by extension every other non vegan, would suffer the karma of rebirth as a lessor creature for my sins... Too bad that her father was a butcher so she would inevitably have had a very rich meat diet for most of her life before it was revealed to her, in her 40's, that strict veganism was the only ethical way to live her life.

    I can't stand Simon Amstell, he isn't funny and was CRAP on the Buzzcocks. His fucking laugh goes right through me too. He washes up badly when somone gets the better of him and he persistently tried to pick at Ricky all through this episode after Ricky owned him from the beginning.

    Simon Amstel & David Baddiel have been the best guests by a long long way. Simon was trying to get into really interesting areas and managed to squeeze out a few droplets, but Ricky is unsurprisingly resistant to getting into any material other than the “comedy shop talk” with dull hacks such as the other comedian and the rest of his guests, repeated for the 25th time.

    Jesus, that weasel (whichever one of the two that is) has the most annoying laugh in the world. It's like he's trying to imitate Ricky's, but it just ends up being cringy and painful. And judging from how little Ricky himself laughed he must have noticed it too.

    Such a pity Sirius XM is supporting the likes of Steve Bannon (Seth Rogen refused to appear there) and such a pity the great Ricky Gervais would rather block people who speak out against it than give a reason why he is not leaving the show in protest. Could it be money? Entire career making fun of people and now he's playing the liberal and helping Bannon. When will we find out he doesn't like animals. "Oh I can't have a dog cause I'm always away" yeah right...

    Really good episode this, Simon amstell works brilliantly as an interviewer. These guests work greatly with Ricky as he always has a lot to say and sometimes with the likes of Robin Ince, they also want the limelight so can be a bit of a shouting match on who speaks over who, but with Sean happy to take a back seat and speak every now and then and Simon's intellect as well as his patience really makes a good dynamic for all 3 of these to show their full personalities without conflicting one another, very similar set up of timings as ricky Stephen and Karl, really good pacing. Not deluded that a Karl ricky and Stephen podcast would happen again as everyone has gone their own seperate ways, but in regards to getting Karl on professionally to talk about his new programme coming onto Sky at some point would be nice

    I just wish Ricky would try a little harder not to repeat himself in these. The guests probably haven't heard these lines but the audience often have about 8 times already. I like everything he says I just wish he wouldn't say it so many times.

    The best episode yet, i like the chemistry between Ricky and Simon. I think this just shows that this is a good concept it just depends on who Ricky has in the room. He needs someone to bounce off or challenge him so he doesn't have to talk about himself the whole time to make it interesting

    I have some serious sad tales of woe. So sad they make girls cry (so I dont speak about it much as its not fair, not very manly to make girls feel sad for you) What I did was look for ways to re-frame events so they changed my feelings towards everything/everyone. I also came up with exercises and other ways/things to do to get rid of the pain. Im pretty fucking clever if truth be known ;) Except sometimes the pain does seep through.
