THR COVER: Ricky Gervais

'Awards Chatter' Podcast — Ricky Gervais ('David Brent: Life on the Road')

The irreverent British comedy genius behind ‘The Office’ and ‘Extras’ explains how his life informs his work, what it would take for him to host the Oscars (he’s hosted four unforgettable Golden Globes) and what it was like to revisit his most iconic character — who, he believes, paved the way for President Trump — 15 years after he last brought him to life.
