‘It will destroy comedy!’ TalkTV caller fumes over demands Ricky Gervais be cancelled

On Tuesday, Ricky spoke with Alex Jones and Jermaine Jenas on The One Show about his controversial jokes.

The comedian defended his Netflix show as he explained comedy is to help people get through life.

“I think that’s what comedy is for really to get us through stuff and ideally taboo subjects because I want to take the audience to a place they’ve never been before even for a split second,” he told the hosts.

“The most offence comes from when people mistake the subject of a joke with the actual target.

“So, it starts and they go, ‘What’s he going to say?’ I tell the joke and they laugh.

“It’s like a parachute jump it is scary, but then you land and it’s all okay.”

Ian Collins’ TalkTV show airs weekdays from 1pm.
