Ricky Gervais: Fringe Benefits

by | 7th, August 2007

THE backlash against tubby comic Ricky Gervais started the minute people realised that he actually was David Brent.

From sickeningly false modesty over his success to his penchant for kissing the backsides of the rich and famous, Gervais is struggling to win back the public’s sympathy, particularly after his cringe-making Princess Di concert on-stage death. (Relive the horror here.)
Now, the millionaire star has been accused of latent greed, after tickets for his Edinburgh Fringe Festival show were priced at £37.50 a pop. It doesn’t sound very ‘fringe’ to me.
