Ricky Gervais’ Black List

Reigning king of British comedy Ricky Gervais, who stars in this month’s Ghost Town, sounds off on schmaltz, psychics and spiders. He is most certainly not having a laugh.

1 Animal cruelty. Bullfighting, foxhunting, battery farming and fur trading.

2 Religious fascism. Delusional bullies who think a god is on their side when they are hurting other people.

3 Con artists. Mediums, faith healers and clairvoyants.

4 Lateness and other bad manners. Eating with your mouth open, slurping, sniffing, coughing and sneezing without covering your face.

5 Bad art. Cheap merchandizing, awful greetings cards, T-shirts with catchphrases on them.

6 Spiders. Nothing needs that many legs.

7 People who harp on about their race, sexuality or background. Get over it.

8 Everything Andy Millman said at the end of Extras. Those were basically just my opinions.

9 People who say things like, “I say what I think,” or, “I’ll tell you to your face.” You mean you’re a rude, ignorant pig.

10 Gossip. Bitchy, jealous Internet or tabloid “critics” who slag off Madonna or Coldplay, but really want to be their friends.
