    The Complete Collection includes all 4 of Ricky's Live shows on DVD: Animals, Politics, Fame and Science.

    Ricky Gervais returns with this brand new stand up show Fame where he turns his comic attention to the world of the celebrity and everything that fame can bring both good and bad. Ricky just keeps getting better and better as a stand-up and this show should be the funniest yet after all it's a subject he's well acquainted with.

    Animals: Filmed during a limited run at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London, the show is based around Ricky's fascination with the animal kingdom (including that curious species, the human being) and covers subjects as diverse as classifying bats, gay animals and the Great War poets. From the moment the curtain goes up, it becomes clear that David Attenborough has nothing to worry about as Gervais accompanies a short film on animal copulation with a unique and not entirely scientific narration! Fans will wonder if any subject is taboo as the comedy drifts from his interpretation of the Bible (including what really went on in the Garden of Eden) to parts of the animal kingdom that the BBC never dared to cover.

    Politics: Whilst many comedians end up on television only after trawling the stand up circuit building themselves a reputation, Ricky Gervais ended up going straight to television, and it was only after The Office had drawn to a close he took to the stage with Animals; his first ever stand up comedy tour. Politics was tour number two, only a year later, and Ricky's come a long way. Though the title may suggest another lecture like discourse on the state of politics - particularly with the US elections not far behind us - you're looking in the wrong place for cutting political satire. It's merely an easy marquee to throw over the show, because what Gervais does best is play with subjects that are particularly politically incorrect.

    Science: Ricky Gervais Live IV Science or the way things worked before we invented God. The hilarious fourth live smash hit stand up show from Ricky Gervais, following his complete sell out tour - filmed live at London's Hammersmith HMV Apollo.
