“Ricky Gervais is a comic genius,” gushed BAFTA Los Angeles CEO Chantal Rickards. “He is provocative, edgy, and his observations on life have brought us some of the best comedy moments ever in television and film. He crosses the pond with consummate ease, continues to push the comedic boundaries, and we’re looking forward to raising a glass to his incomparable talents at the Britannia Awards.”
