Tonight I’m watching the DVD of Series 2 of Extras. It’s painfully funny. Shoot, I’m laughing at the DVD extras. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant know how to properly mess with my funny bone. Where else can you have Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe accidentally fling a super-sized condom onto Diana — Dame Diana — Rigg’s head? Or Orlando Bloom showing off how he beat Johnny Depp in the “Sexiest Man Alive” write-up in a woman’s magazine? Or David Bowie creating a cringe-worthy song in a bar (Bowie’s hilarious about his appearance in an interview in the DVD extras).

If you enjoy watching actors having fun and you like to laugh then check out Extras.

    Extras is sublime comedy. Have you checked out Gervais’s live stand up, Animals? Wonderful!

    Animals? No….I’ll have to. I enjoyed the heck out of The Office and Extras takes it up a notch. I even had to watch the DVD extras several times because I enjoy Gervais and Merchant so much. I still have the last 3 episodes to watch for the second season and I know that I’ll miss the show after that.

    Kevmoore — Ah! I have seen the Bible segment of Animals which makes me laugh. “God created the universe in the dark” is such a wonderful take on the Genesis story. I certainly had never thought of it that way. 😉

    He’s just so inherently funny- his facial expressions when he mimes being an elephant caught swimming illegally is just split-your-sides hilarious, love it!
