Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are two of the most brilliant comedians on the planet, and somehow they’re British. They brought their special brand of humor stateside in a variety of projects, working both together and alone. In fact, these days, they’ve mostly been working solo, but we pair them up here because we’ll always remember them as a pair…of poofs. Check out the hilarious filmography of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant
10. Cemetery Junction
Gervais and Merchant share writing and directing credits for this 2010 coming-of-age dramedy set in 1970s England.
9. Derek/Hello Ladies
When they created and starred in their own shows, we got to see their individuality.
8. After Life
Of course, Gervais went depressing comedian on us like some comedians are apt to do when they think we need to see them acting dramatic. Just make us laugh, monkey.
7. The Ricky Gervais Show
The duo teams with Karl Pilkington to discuss topics of the day.
6. David Brent: Life on the Road
Imagine they made a movie about The Office, and it was just a documentary about Michael Scott in a band. That’s pretty much what this is.
5. An Idiot Abroad
Pilkington is sent around the world so two smug assholes can laugh at how naive he is.
