Films with: Gervais, Ricky

Curb your enthusiasm.
The series proves how seemingly trivial details of one's day-to-day life, a trip to the grocery store, a remark at a dinner party, a fender-bender, can precipitate a 'Murphy's Law' chain of misfortune to hilarious effect. To keep the narrative spontaneous, Curb is shot without a script; cast members are given scene outlines and often improvise lines as they go.

Extras.
Andy has been an actor for five years, but thanks to his useless agent, he's never done any real acting. Instead, he is a lowly film extra, making his mark in the background while the stars do their work. His partner in arms is the pitiable Maggie, a fellow extra and a hopeless romantic.

For your consideration
No-name actors are making a low-budget period drama called "Home for Purim," when an anonymous post on the Internet suggests that one performance is Oscar-worthy. Then, two more cast members get Oscar-related press: buzz in "Variety" and appearances on TV prompt the studio executives to insist on changes in the script in anticipation of a blockbuster. Jump ahead a few months to the days before Oscar nominees are announced: just the possibility of a nomination has changed the actors' lives.

Idiot abroad
In this hilarious series, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, co-creators of The Office and Extras, send their friend Karl Pilkington around the world. Karl thinks he's visiting the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World but along the way the 'Little Englander' must endure camel rides, jungle treks, tribal customs, and local oddballs while dining on toads and testicles, and searching for a clean bathroom.

Invention of lying

In a world where everyone is unfailingly honest, a lie is believed with total and absolute gullibility. Mark can get anything he wants. The one thing he truly wants is the love of a girl named Anna who happens to be the one person he can't bring himself to lie to.

Office the complete first series /
Wernham Hogg is a paper company located in a suburb of London. David, a petty, pathetic little man is worse than your boss. David's yes-man is Gareth, who is extremely irratating. Tim is the apathetic sales rep, who can be quite witty. Dawn, the lovely receptionist, is far more endearing than your back-sassying secretary. Work is a pain, but one man's misery is another man's entertainment.
