David Brent is Back For Some Comic Relief
David Brent will be back in March as Ricky Gervais has decided it’s time to revisit his first big comedy creation for this year’s Comic Relief.
With the first episode airing back in July, 2001, it been more than a decade since Gervais’ “The Office” first appeared on our screens. At long last a brand new trailer has been unleashed (after an Ali G style teaser yesterday) showing David Brent discussing his life since the show began. As was the case back then, he’s ‘adeptly’ combining his sales rep skills with those of a music mogul to comedic effect.
Fans of the ‘comedian, rapper and bloody good entertainer’ Doc Brown (also appearing in an episode of Derek) will enjoy his special guest appearance in the sketch here with Brent demoing his political reggae song ‘Equality Street’.
Gervais commented that Brent is has taken up “passing on his wisdom to younger would-be rock stars now and is living vicariously through a young performer, Dom Johnson.”
It’s been a long time coming but the Wernham–Hogg paper merchants middle-manager is back this Red Nose Day, Friday March 15.
Gervais’ is also hard at work filming for the new Muppets movie and in case any of you missed the video we posted up on our Choice Picks Playlist here he is with Pepe on the set of ‘The Muppets…Again!’
