Irreverent, brilliant and often controversial, stand up comedian, actor, producer and animal activist, Ricky Gervais is of course best known for the mockumentary series The Office which he co-created with Stephen Merchant. Next came the sitcom Extras featuring guest appearances from David Bowie, Ben Stiller, Kate Winslet, Chris Martin and Patrick Stewart.
Hollywood beckoned and Gervais went onto appear in a number of films including Night at the Museum, Ghost Town, The Invention of Lying, Ghost Town and Muppets Most Wanted.
He’s garnered a multitude of awards and honours, branched out into children’s writing with the best selling Flanimals and his radio show the Ricky Gervais Show went onto become a phenomenally successful podcast and animated series.
We’re very lucky to have Ricky as one of our long standing supporters. This year he’s donated a pair of black leather boots by House of Hounds, worn by David Brent himself, in a size 42 .
