Gervais sends up advertisers

Ricky Gervais was the first British celebrity
approached for those Mac/PC adverts that
you now see everywhere featuring Mitchell and
Webb. Gervais turned up to meet the team of
US executives behind the ad who then pitched
him their idea of a "cool" guy and a "nerdy"
guy representing a Mac and a PC.

Gervais listened intently and then asked,
poker faced, "So who are you thinking of
getting to play the nerdy chap?"

The suits looked at each other nervously,
several squirmed in their seats, working out
how to tell Gervais he'd got it wrong.
And Ricky waited an absolute age before
cracking a smile, saying "only kidding!"

Comedian just wants to be a girl

Users of the women's toilets in London club
Coco were startled recently when a man
ran in and threw himself on the floor
writhing and screaming out,
"But I want to be a girl, I want to be in here!"

The man's girlfriend followed, and eventually
pulled him to his feet and out of the toilets.
Everyone else in the ladies just looked at
each other in surprise. As the girl-wannabe
was Mighty Boosh star Noel Fielding.
