Ricky Gervais is an English actor, writer, director, musician and stand-up comedian. Working in the music industry in the 1980s and early 90s, he moved into television comedy in the late 1990s and shot to national - and soon, international - fame in 2001 for BBC mock-documentary The Office, in which he starred as well as co-writing and directing with Stephen Merchant. He has since branched successfully into stand-up comedy, written a number of books, produced podcasts and a number of further television series.
