    Ricky Gervais was hilarious year ago, but this year I guess NBC was too careful with his material. Shame on NBC.
    @Steven W, I wouldn’t call RG an idiot nor homophobe, he was joking. Everyone knew it, including JF, who seemed to have fun.

    Ricky Gervais is hilarious. I love it, I love his brand of comedy and I love his attitude about it. Like he said in his Ellen interview “this is not a room full of wounded soldiers, these are the most privileged people in the world.” They all need to get over themselves if they let a comedian upset them that much.

    Ricky gervais is NOT homophobic. I you dont like his comedy then fine, but find a more convincing argument than that. I think some of you have no sense of humour whatsoever on the subject of sexuality.

    You make a movie called “The Beaver” starring Mel Gibson….you open yourself up to some wisecracks. I love Ricky Gervais. He is NOT homophobic and is the opposite of an idiot…. you idiots.

    First of all, the joke was an excellent double-entendre, and it was making a joke not only about her sexuality but about the lack of distribution her film received. The best part about good wordplay is that you can make a joke that’s funny for three camps: the two opposing parties that understand the different jokes, and the third (and biggest) party that gets both. Her kids probably didn’t get the joke, and if they did, who cares? It’s not like they don’t know she’s a lesbian, and her sexuality shouldn’t be any more protected than anyone other public figure’s.
