Rob’s Entertainment Review
Ricky Gervais: SuperNature
Streaming on Netflix
Ricky Gervais is back and you need look no further than social media to know what you’re in for…an amazing show with an endless parade of victims that leaves the woke crowd curled up in the fetal position, muttering the phrase “words are violence!”
Gervais gives AIDS life…yes, he gives it a face and a voice. He explains that Trans people can’t be offended by his jokes because all they want is to be accepted and included…and that’s why he’s including them in his never-ending monologue making fun of EVERYONE. He explains the name of his special by attacking with hysterical disdain everything from ghost hunters to religion. He accepts his vices and points out that fat people have made themselves that way and we all need to acknowledge that. As for racism…just wait for the Eskimo joke and what follows; it’s brilliant.
Most notably, as with Dave Chappelle, in his own way, Gervais destroys the lunacy of being woke and the necessity for comedy. The reason the woke are losing their mind isn’t because they’re actually offended, it’s because they can’t argue with his logic and their sensitive little feelings are running them into circles.
There are many laugh-out-loud moments but also, there are plenty of wildly intelligent observations about our idiotic over-sensitive society. It’s worth the hour.
