Humor Ricky Gervais has contributed to the BAFTA-winning The Sketch Show (ITV), penning several sketches. His mainstream-TV debut came in September 1998 as part of Channel 4’s "Comedy Lab" series of pilots. His one-off show Golden Years focused on a David Bowie""obsessed character called Clive Meadows. Gervais then came to much wider national attention with an obnoxious, cutting persona featured in a topical slot that replaced Ali G’s segments on the satirical Channel 4 comedy programme The 11 O’Clock Show in early 1999, in which his character used as many expletives as was possible and produced an inordinate amount of politically incorrect statements. Among the other regular featured comedians on the show was Mackenzie Crook, later a co-star of The Office. Two years later, Ricky Gervais went on to present his own comedy chat show for Channel 4 called Meet Ricky Gervais; it was poorly received and has since been mocked by Gervais himself. Throughout this time, Ricky Gervais also wrote for the BBC sketch show Bruiser and The Jim Tavare Show, and he had cameo roles in Channel 4’s sitcom Spaced; it is speculated that the cameo is indeed The Office character David Brent. However, both series of Spaced finished airing before The Office premiered. Gervais also appeared in a few of Channel 4’s ‘Top 100…’ list programmes, and he voiced the character of Penguin in Robbie the Reindeer’s Legend of the Lost Tribe. His voice was redubbed for the US market. On 5 January 2006, he interviewed Larry David in a one off special, Ricky Gervais Meets… Larry David. On 25th and 26th December of the same year Channel 4 aired similar specials in which he interviewed the actor/comedian Christopher Guest and comedian Garry Shandling. There are no plans for further episodes of "Meets…", although editions with John Cleese and Matt Groening were recorded in 2006, for broadcast in 2007. A source claimed, "The Shandling experience put him off for good". Ricky Gervais guest-starred in an episode of The Simpsons entitled "Homer Simpson, This Is Your Wife", which aired on 26 March 2006 in the United States, on 23 April 2006 in the United Kingdom, and on 18 July 2006 in Australia. He is the only British comic to write and star in a Simpsons episode. The episode was the highest rated in Sky One’s history, arguably because of its extensive promotion, which revolved around the angle that Gervais was the episode’s sole writer (and the first guest star on the show to also receive a writing credit for the episode of his appearance). Gervais clarified the extent of his input in a joint interview (with Christopher Guest) for Dazed and Confused magazine (January 2006): "No, all I did was put down a load of observations on an email and they made it look like a Simpsons script. I’m going to get the credit, but I think everyone in the industry knows it was a joint effort". Asked in a separate interview about how his idea for the episode (in which Homer swaps Marge on a game show) came about, Gervais replied: I’ve always been fascinated with reality game shows but I think it was my girlfriend’s idea. We watch Celebrity Big Brother at the moment, we watch I’m a Celebrity, Get Me out of Here… we watch all those reality TV shows "" The Office came out of those docu-soaps". Ricky Gervais, a longstanding Simpsons fan, presented a segment to mark the show’s 20th anniversary on BBC Two’s The Culture Show on 16 June 2007. Ricky Gervais has also guest-starred on Alias (appearing in the third-season episode "Faade") as Daniel Ryan, a former Royal Navy bomb-disposal specialist turned rogue Irish Republican Army bomb-maker. He has said about the appearance, "I did an episode of Alias, and I can’t watch it. Me being serious. I can’t watch it". Gervais made a cameo appearance on Saturday Night Live in a Digital Short during which he claims that The Office was adapted from a Japanese program of the same name (with Steve Carell reprising his role as Michael Scott). The sketch re-creates scenes from the American and British pilot episode with Japanese elements (although in an exaggerated way). "It’s funny", Gervais laughs at the end, "because it’s racist". In January 2009. Gervais was interviewed by James Lipton for Season 15 of BravoTV’s Inside the Actors Studio. As of November 2009, he has also appeared 14 times on The Late Show With David Letterman. Gervais hosted the 2010 Golden Globes, making him the first master of ceremonies since 1995. He stated: "I have resisted many other offers like this, but there are just some things you don’t turn down."
